Adrijana Savic,Poster Abstracts, MAKING TIME FOR YOUTH JUSTICE PROCESS AND DELAY IN THE JUVENILE. William A Chernoff and W Richard Goe, Department of Sociology Anthropology and Social Work College of Arts and Sciences. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Every year hundreds if not thousands of hours are devoted. in the United States to the process of youth justice When these hours are wisely managed the. juvenile court is better primed to achieve its goals whether they focus on crime control treatment. legal or restorative justice or some combination thereof The present study explores 1 What. prevents the juvenile court from efficiently managing its cases in a timely manner And 2 What. can the juvenile court do to improve the timely management of its cases METHOD Drawing a. random sample of court cases n 394 from a large Midwestern juvenile court filed between. January 1st 2012 and December 31st 2015 the present study sought to better understand delay in. the juvenile court RESULTS FINDINGS Controlling for failure to appear diagnostic. evaluations caseload detention status and offense severity statistically significant relationships. were observed between the time session rate a measure of timely case processing and factors. measuring e file status and the withdrawal of lawyers CONCLUSION There is much the. juvenile court can do to reduce unnecessary delay By automating more court procedures and. withdrawing some court actors the juvenile court can process cases more quickly. Relevance of Research to State Related Topic s, Managing scarce resources is not just about efficiency In fact the efficient use of resources is. central to fulfilling the juvenile court s mission Timely case processing is one way the juvenile. court can protect and serve the community Though benevolent in its mission poor case. management wastes valuable taxpayer dollars One way to avoid such undue harm is through. effective case management By knowing what delays a case what does not and why the juvenile. court can not only achieve its goals but also provide sorely needed services to the community It. is in this way that the court can protect the community from the one thing it has the most control. over itself, WHO UNDERSTANDS CONSENT A LATENT PROFILE ANALYSIS OF COLLEGE. STUDENTS BEHAVIORAL INTENTIONS REGARDING CONSENT,Eric Goodcase Chelsea Spencer and Michelle Toews. School of Family Studies Human Services College of Human Ecology. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Approximately 23 of female and 5 of male. undergraduate students report being sexually assaulted while attending college One of the factors. that contribute to this is the ambiguity surrounding what consent is Consent must be affirmative. ongoing and explicit but many college students report being uncertain about consent despite the. many educational programs that seek to educate college students about sexual assault and consent. METHOD The current study uses a survey of 724 college students at a Midwestern university to. determine if different people may have varying behavioral intentions regarding affirmative. ongoing and explicit consent during different sexual situations Latent Profile Analysis a. statistical approach that groups participants by similar traits was used to find distinct profiles of. how individuals intend to behave regarding consent RESULTS Results indicate that there are. four distinct profiles of individuals respecting affirmative ongoing explicit consent class. 76 55 of sample respecting explicit consent only class 9 89 unsure about non explicit. consent class 9 04 and consent not obtained in romantic relationships class 4 55. CONCLUSIONS Results indicate most individuals respect consent when it is explicitly stated. which is evidence to the effectiveness of current education programs However individuals in two. of the profiles indicated they would potentially engage in sexual behavior that does not fully. respect affirmative ongoing consent and would be considered sexual assault Educating college. students on the importance of how consent must be affirmative and ongoing can potentially. decrease the number of sexual assaults occurring on college campuses. Relevance of Research to State Related Topic s, Sexual assault on college campuses has received a lot of attention from researchers the media and. legislators due to its prevalence Despite this attention sexual assault is still common and college. campuses struggle to adhere to Title IX guidelines 7 active Title IX complaints in Kansas alone. as of June 2016 Potential effects of sexual assault to an individual include pregnancy chronic. pain or migraines gastrointestinal issues depression anxiety post traumatic stress disorder and. other physical and mental health issues This also affects larger systems as money is spent on. healthcare and on legal fees The current study highlights how college students understand consent. and shows what aspects need to be emphasized or added to existing sexual assault education These. changes could lead to an increase in understanding consent for students which could lead to a. decrease in prevalence of sexual assault and an increase college administrators understanding of. consent would decrease potential Title IX complaints. EXAMINING INTIMATE PARTNER HOMICIDE A META SYNTHESIS. Jacqueline Harden Jingshuai Du Chelsea Spencer and Sandra Stith. School of Family Studies and Human Services College of Human Ecology. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intimate Partner Violence IPV is a serious health concern. and Intimate Partner Homicide IPH is one of the leading causes of death for women in the U S. CDC 2017 Recent research has identified the strongest risk markers for IPV Spencer Cafferky. Stith 2016 but little research has examined factors that increase risk of IPH which is often. much harder to predict than IPV It is necessary to learn more about IPH risk factors in order for. clinicians and law enforcement to be able to help victims before IPV escalates to IPH METHOD. We conducted a meta synthesis of qualitative research on IPH which included 30 studies We. examined studies related to IPH risk factors themes and motivations to create a meta synthesis. RESULTS FINDINGS Preliminary results show that while victims themselves are the best. source of prediction for IPV they are rarely able to predict when abuse will turn lethal In a. majority of the studies that included victims who had survived homicide attempts most victims. said that they had not thought their partner or ex partner was capable of murder One of the risk. factors that seemed prevalent throughout the literature was non fatal strangulation. CONCLUSION Based on our early findings it is clear that there is a need for victims of IPV to. be aware of the risk factors specific to IPH and be provided with services and opportunities to. extricate themselves from dangerous situations,Relevance of Research to State Related Topic s. This research is relevant for the state of Kansas because in 2013 there were 30 domestic violence. homicides which amounts to of all homicides in Kansas that year NCADV IPV and IPH costs. the US billions of dollars each year in health care costs and also costs employer s billions each. year Centers for Disease Control and Injury Prevention Because of the far reaching impacts of. IPH across health and economic services it is crucial for us to understand what factors put an. individual at risk for IPH This research will aid communities first responders law enforcement. officials victim advocates therapists and hospital workers in identifying potential risk factors that. may put individuals at risk for IPH thus aiding in the prevention of IPH. EXAMINE TAXES ON BUSINESS BY THEORETICAL MODELS AND EMPIRICAL. Kristen Huang, Department of Economics College of Arts and Sciences. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Voters are difficult to know the effectiveness of political. policy so this paper investigates taxes on business by comparing to without taxes on business. METHOD In this paper data is not needed but the knowledge of macroeconomic theory is. important for research Models of analysis are one period two period and overlapping generations. Assumptions are that agents have different periods of life to maximize their utility and firms. maximize profits under competitive markets In addition the amount of capitals and hired labors. are fixed in different models The purpose of analysis is to know change of endogenous varibales. after different kinds of taxes were imposed on business RESULTS FINDINGS The price of. wage and capital would decrease under taxes on production the price of wage would decrease. under taxes on labors holding the price of capitals the same and the price of capitals would. decrease under taxes on capitals holding the price of wage the same Consumption would decrease. in different theoretical models but total consumption would decrease under taxes on production. would decrease increase under taxes on labors and would increase under taxes on capitals in. empirical study CONCLUSION Due to different kinds of taxes taxes on business would not be. the way to boost the economy,Relevance of Research to State Related Topic s. Taxes on business could be taxes on production taxes on labors and taxes on capitals Taxes on. business caused lower performance in stock markets business and so on From empirical study. results show that taxes on production could not be the effective policy to improve economic. development However taxes on labors and taxes on capitals could increase consumption and. economic activities Thus this study investigates the relationship between different kinds of taxes. and economic outcomes Results of this paper may give suggestions to government lawmakers. and business to make a policy and to improve the economy During the election voters may make. the right choice for a country and choose a policy. STUDENTS USE OF MATHEMATICS WHILE WORKING ON ASSESSMENTS IN. Amali Priyanka Jambuge and James T Laverty, Department of Physics College of Arts and Sciences. BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The most common ways of assessing students knowledge. are through homework and exams In the past such assessments in physics were designed to assess. concepts With the introduction of the Next Generation Science Standards NGSS there is. growing interest in assessing not just what students know but what students can do with their. knowledge Therefore we need new strategies for designing assessments that can provide evidence. of what students are able to do with their knowledge The NGSS id built around the idea that we. should blend Scientific Practices Core Ideas and Crosscutting Concepts together into our. curriculum instruction and assessment The Three Dimensional Learning Assessment Protocol. 3D LAP was developed by researchers at Michigan State University to translate these ideas into. the science exam and homework problems primarily at the college level The purpose of this study. is to investigate how well such problems can assess students use of their knowledge in. mathematics METHOD I developed an exam with questions based on 3D LAP and will record. students taking the exam in an interview setting These students will be asked to think aloud while. working through the exam ANTICIPATED RESULTS FINDINGS AND IMPLICATIONS. The results of this study will be used to validate how effect the 3D LAP is for assessing students. use of mathematics The study will also inform potential modifications to the existing 3D LAP. Relevance of Research to State Related Topic s, It is important to have a substantial portion of scientifically literate population in a country The. students should be educated such that they have the ability to think scientifically when they. confront scientific inquiries Assessments of scientific understanding should be developed to elicit. evidence that students have the required knowledge needed for the grade level they are in as well. as whether or not they can use that knowledge Our study will expand the existing knowledge on. assessing students on physics concepts by implementing 3D LAP where students knowledge will.
