Effects Of Preseason Concussion Education On Self-Reported Likelihood And Confidence In Concussion Reporting, Dana Edward Cash Jan 2019

Effects Of Preseason Concussion Education On Self-Reported Likelihood And Confidence In Concussion Reporting, Dana Edward Cash

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Around three million concussions happen in the United States from sport and recreational activity alone, and it is estimated 50% of concussions go undiagnosed. Collegiate athletes have been found to not report their symptoms of concussion mainly because they felt their symptoms were not severe enough and they did not think there were any long-term consequences from continuing to play. This study attempts to find if preseason concussion education for collegiate hockey players and club athletes changes their perceptions about concussions, and if these changes are maintained after returning to sport/competition. This study used three identical surveys over three ...


A Proposed Model For Designing Children's Health-Focused Serious Games, Whitley R. Kemble Jan 2014

A Proposed Model For Designing Children's Health-Focused Serious Games, Whitley R. Kemble

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Rising incidence of chronic health problems among children demands greater consideration of children as primary users of health learning materials. Current formats of this information may not be suitable format for their needs. Video games present a more viable option for understanding complex health concepts underlying such conditions. Serious games in particular may fill this need, however there are few resources specific to the design of health-focused serious games. Learning, gameplay, and usability are all important components of serious gaming. A thorough analysis of 12 models used in each of these disciplines guided development of a new 15-point model, which ...

Understanding And Acceptance Of Biological Evolution And The Nature Of Science: Studies On University Faculty, Justin William Rice Jan 2012

Understanding And Acceptance Of Biological Evolution And The Nature Of Science: Studies On University Faculty, Justin William Rice

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

There are serious problems with biological evolution education. Since the time of Darwin resistance has existed to the idea that biological evolution via natural selection occurs. America has seen more than its fair share of opposition, particularly in recent history. From Scopes to Dover the teaching of biological evolution has been under attack. Most recently foes of biological evolution have argued that intelligent design (ID) is a valid scientific alternative. Those that suggest this hold fundamentally incorrect concepts of the nature of science (NOS), which has been shown to be a factor related to knowledge and acceptance of biological evolution ...

Academic Game Development: Practices And Design Strategies For Creating Stem Games, Mark Edwin Stenerson

In the last decade, there has been an increase in legislation and funding that aims to get students in the United States interested in fields involving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in order to keep the United States competitive with other countries in these important academic areas.
