Methods To Evaluate And Predict Student Success In Introduction To Animal Science At Western Kentucky University, Matthew Deppe Aug 2002

Methods To Evaluate And Predict Student Success In Introduction To Animal Science At Western Kentucky University, Matthew Deppe

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Outcomes assessment is the process of determining student progress in a class or academic program. Students, (n = 306), from six freshman-level introductory animal science classes at Western Kentucky University (WKU) were given subjective and objective evaluation instruments on the first and last day of class. Students self evaluated competencies on each of forty-nine course outcomes using a scale of 1-100. Twenty-one demographic questions were also answered. Students were given the same 50-question examination following completion of the subjective assessment on the first and last day of class. Student high school performance measures including the American College Test scores (ACT), percentile ...


We Want To Play Too, Peter J. Titlebaum, Kate Brennan, Tracy Chynoweth May 2002

We Want To Play Too, Peter J. Titlebaum, Kate Brennan, Tracy Chynoweth

Health and Sport Science Faculty Publications

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that persons with disabilities be integrated to the maximum extent possible, and that these persons cannot be excluded from participation. Intramural directors need to be proactive in this area. The benefits of intramural sports are vast, and they help many students become part of the college community.

Forming an alliance with the Disability Services on campus, the first step, is the most vital aspect of making these programs successful. It is important to remember the difference between what can be done and what must be done. Even with the best of intentions, it ...

G02-1482 Guidelines For A Non-Fasting Feeding Program For The Molting Of Laying Hens, Sheila E. Scheideler, Mary M. Beck Jan 2002

G02-1482 Guidelines For A Non-Fasting Feeding Program For The Molting Of Laying Hens, Sheila E. Scheideler, Mary M. Beck

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Laying hens are molted at the end of one laying cycle (i.e. one year) to induce a cessation of lay and rejuvenation of the reproductive tract and skeleton for a second cycle of egg production. This is based on the natural molting process that wild birds undergo annually and traditionally it has been induced by fasting the hens for a short period of time. This NebGuide offers guidance on non-fasting feeding program for the molting of laying hens.

G02-1443 Care Of Veterinary Vaccine Syringes, Dicky D. Griffin, Steve Ensley, David R. Smith, Grant Dewell, Marilyn Buhman Jan 2002

G02-1443 Care Of Veterinary Vaccine Syringes, Dicky D. Griffin, Steve Ensley, David R. Smith, Grant Dewell, Marilyn Buhman

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide explains the basics of veterinary vaccine syringe cleaning and care.

Inadequately cleaned vaccine syringes are often responsible for localized infections associated with vaccination. Swellings around the injection site is common, especially when killed vaccines such as clostridial bacterins are given subcutaneously. Generally, these swellings can be considered good evidence that the animal is developing a proper immune response, but if the injection site swelling is greater than a small hen's egg, the swelling may be due to infection and should be examined.

A Proposed Undergraduate Bioinformatics Curriculum For Computer Scientists, Travis E. Doom, Michael L. Raymer, Dan E. Krane, Oscar Garcia Jan 2002

A Proposed Undergraduate Bioinformatics Curriculum For Computer Scientists, Travis E. Doom, Michael L. Raymer, Dan E. Krane, Oscar Garcia

Kno.e.sis Publications

Bioinformatics is a new and rapidly evolving discipline that has emerged from the fields of experimental molecular biology and biochemistry, and from the the artificial intelligence, database, and algorithms disciplines of computer science. Largely because of the inherently interdisciplinary nature of bioinformatics research, academia has been slow to respond to strong industry and government demands for trained scientists to develop and apply novel bioinformatics techniques to the rapidly-growing, freely-available repositories of genetic and proteomic data. While some institutions are responding to this demand by establishing graduate programs in bioinformatics, the entrance barriers for these programs are high, largely due to ...

Teaching About Chemical Resistant Gloves With Educational Exhibits, Linda Manikowske, Janis Stone, Brecca Farr, James Wilson, Wendy Wintersteen Jan 2002

Teaching About Chemical Resistant Gloves With Educational Exhibits, Linda Manikowske, Janis Stone, Brecca Farr, James Wilson, Wendy Wintersteen

Entomology Publications

Educational exhibits are often used for teaching at farm and home shows or other expositions. This study determined factors that promoted learning from an educational exhibit on chemical resistant gloves for handling pesticides. An "active" exhibit where participants tried on gloves was compared to a "static" version without this activity. "Talking to staff" at the exhibit was most important in attracting attention and helping to learn about glove safely followed by "getting hands measured" and "trying on gloves." rightly percent indicated that they had read fact sheets provided at the exhibit and 32.5% shared fact sheets with others. Sixty-nine ...


Ec02-174 Noxious Weeds Of Nebraska: Leafy Spurge, Robert A. Masters, Brady Kappler Jan 2002

Ec02-174 Noxious Weeds Of Nebraska: Leafy Spurge, Robert A. Masters, Brady Kappler

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Leafy spurge is an invasive weed that infests over three million acres in the northern Great Plains and the prairie provinces of Canada. It is commonly found in rangelands, pastures, roadsides, rights-of-way, and woodlands. Leafy spurge can reduce rangeland and pasture carrying capacity by as much as 75 percent because it competes with forages and cattle avoid grazing areas infested with this weed.

This Extension Circular discusses the biology, identification, distribution and control of leafy spurge.
