Abstract

The aim of this embedded – mixed experimental model study is to implement the descriptive valuation pattern in the education and training department. In the qualitative section, this study includes lived experiences in three steps in which the experiences of the acquirers are identified through descriptive valuation pattern before and after the presentation of the independent variable (during and after that). In the quantitative section, semi-experimental research including a pre-test from 2 groups (experiment and control) and a post-test after the presentation of the pattern to the experiment group is presented. The population of the study in both sections (qualitative and quantitative) includes the students of Somaye institute in the city of Farsan. Using an equal sampling method, the students will be considered as participants. The research tool for collecting the experiences of the acquirers is a semi-structural interview. In order to analyze the primary data in the pre-test, we used a test. In the quantitative section and in order to estimate the validity of the test, we used items analysis and for the reliability test, we used the Cronbach's alpha coefficient. In order to analyze the data in the qualitative section, we used content analysis and in order to determine the success level of the presented pattern, variance analysis test was used. The results showed that the students believe that the descriptive valuation pattern suffers from the bad condition and the integrated model that is presented can solve many problems related to the implementation of the descriptive valuation pattern.
