Here is a great research opportunity that has become available, please see below:
The Results Management Team (RMT), part of the Center for Education and Training for Employment (CETE), in the College of Education and Human Ecology is seeking a student and/or faculty partner to be part of a team investigating the impact of a formal training program on the ability of a county juvenile court to develop and modify programming to maximize benefits for court referred youth. We envision two primary data collection activities subject to IRB approval. First, we propose to conduct a survey of court personnel in juvenile courts in Ohio. This survey will focus on the capacity of courts to collect and use data to drive program improvement planning. A second data collection activity will involve collecting data from court personnel who participate in a formal training program. The second data collection activity will focus on the extent to which the training program results in enhanced capacities among court personnel. We believe this research will result in two primary products related to scholarship including one or two publications in an appropriate peer-reviewed journal(s) and the development of a federal grant application to test the efficacy of the model in multiple courts based on the data collected in the current project. We are also in a position to collect additional data relative to specific student faculty interests. If interested, please contact Melissa Ross at email@example.com.
