Validating an Assessment Tool to Assess Teacher Understanding on the Next Generation Science Standards

Tracy L Jacobs
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were published in 2013 and science standards went from a procedural process to an approach to science that aligns to real-life applications. Understanding the depth and application of the NGSS presented challenges. Organizations have developed and implemented NGSS-related professional development workshops to help teachers with these challenges. The purpose of this study was to validate an assessment tool to assess teacher’s knowledge on the NGSS after attending workshops. An...

A Confabulation on What's What

William L. Benkelman
Conversations between two friends are one of life's more enjoyable moments, especially when shared over a cup of coffee. This thesis uses a conversational framework of a philosophical dialogue to synthesize works that I had read and engaged with during my time in the Honors College. Inspired by Plato and Denis Diderot, this dialogue investigates issues such as community and technology and how ideas from authors like Franz Kafka, Arthur Schopenhauer, and Robert Pirsig, among...

Predicting Sasquatch Sightings Using Spatial Covariates

Nathan Lee Aagard
Going by a number of different names such as Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Grassman, Skunk Ape, or Fouk Monster, this mysterious creature shows up in local legends and myths across the globe under different aliases and descriptions. Most often described as a large bipedal ape with the resemblance of a human face, sasquatch has been thought of as the missing link between humans and apes, a creature of the past, and potentially a distant relative. No...

Let's Succeed in Sales

Bethany Raver
This is a survey-based study focused on illumining the key qualities/characteristics of a successful salesperson and how such a person stays motivated in a sales role. The survey included the following questions 1) choose your top three qualities or characteristics from the list, 2) how many years have you worked in sales, 3) what causes you stress in the sales role, 4) what are your methods for coping with stress, 5) how do you stay...

Visualizing Mental Illness Through Art

Angela C. Johnson
Mental illness is largely stigmatized in modern society. This stigma can be traced from the history of psychology as problematic themes that coexist with the productive and helpful theories which have shaped modern health and attribute to advancing societies mental health. The problematic themes and ways of thinking remain in modern society. While the scientific basis of historical pseudoscience has been exposed, modern media tropes perpetrate the problem in modern society causing fear-based stigmas, However,...

Literature Review: Examining Harm Reduction Approaches for Alcoholism within the Chronically Homeless Population

Grace Peterson
Abstinence-based treatment models have been ineffective for the chronically homeless population suffering from alcohol use disorder. Recently, harm reduction approaches have become increasingly popular among the homeless population. Commonly known approaches that follow a harm reduction model are needle exchange programs and housing first. In this paper, I reviewed four harm reduction approaches; managed alcohol programs, housing first, naltrexone, and motivational interviewing. Specifically, these programs in relation to treating individuals who suffer from chronic homelessness...

Riots & Reform: Policing in the Post-Floyd Era

Adam R Johnson
George Floyd's death ushered in a new wave of police reform aimed at accountability across the nation. 25 states and DC implemented some form of police reform to reduce police brutality against Black Americans including limits on deadly use of force and chokeholds and increased officer body camera usage. This podcast will explore and analyze police reform in the post-Floyd era to find out exactly how policing has changed by incorporating interviews conducted with real...

Infiltration modeling breakthrough

Fred L. Ogden
We developed an efficient solution method to the one-dimensional partial differential equation (PDE) for unsaturated porous media flow attributed to Richards [1931]. Our solution is a set of three ODE's that was derived by starting from the same equations used to derive Richards' [1931] PDE. We used a change of dependent variable hodograph transformation, employed a finite water-content discretization and the Method of Lines to produce an ODE, which in its various forms accurately simulate...

Borehole nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) logging 2016-2017

Andrew D. Parsekian, Bradley J. Carr, Niels Claes, David O. Walsh & Nadia Fantello
This dataset contains measurements made with the Vista Clara (Mukilteo, WA) Javelin family of borehole nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) logging tools. The Javelin Surface Station was used for all measurements, and probes JP175B, JP175D, and JP350 were used depending on the available borehole. Data were collected between January of 2016 and August 2017 at sites across Wyoming, Colorado, New Jersey, Jemez Critical Zone Observatory, Calhoun Critical Zone Observatory, among other sites. All raw data are...

Developing Lasting Law and Policy While Accounting for Scientific Uncertainty: A Review of Wind Energy Development in Wyoming Greater Sage-Grouse Habitat

As the country looks towards more renewable energy sources, wind energy has become more popular. Although wind turbines may benefit the country’s renewable energy goals, they may also conflict with the conservation of Greater Sage-Grouse. Greater Sage-Grouse have been suggested for listing under the Endangered Species Act several times but are currently not warranted for listing. The expansion of wind energy development into Greater Sage-Grouse habitat has spurred both research and lawsuits to determine if...

Bears Ears National Monument: A Monument for the Locals An Interdisplianry Evaluation of Tribal Involvement in Public Land Planning

Christine Kelly
Bears Ears National Monument has been at the center of a debate on how federal public lands should be managed since 2016 when President Obama designated the area as a national monument. However, tribes in the Southwest had worked to protect the Bears Ears area for years before the area was designated. Tribes had attempted to participate in the Utah Public Lands Initiative, an initiative to provide a local management proposal for federal lands located...

Measuring Faculty Use of the Learning Management System in the First Semester of Availability

Kari Brown-Herbst
The purpose of this project is to quantify the use of a Learning Management System (LMS) by faculty teaching online at a rural community college in the western United States. The LMS is ubiquitous in higher education, in place at 99% of colleges and universities and used by more than 80% of faculty and 82% of students. It is used in all instructional modalities but is an essential tool in online teaching. At institutions offering...

Geologic storage assessment of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Laramide basins of Wyoming

The primary purpose of this technical memorandum is to evaluate and summarize the geologic storage potential of carbon dioxide within the Laramide basins of Wyoming. The Laramide basins were formed during a major geologic event known as the Laramide orogeny, approximately 80–55 million years ago. The Laramide basins assessed for this study include the Greater Green River, Wind River, Bighorn, Powder River, Hanna, and Denver basins.

Developmentally Appropriate Standards: A Recommendation to Kellogg F.I.E.l.D School

Lauren John
This paper analyzes current research and standards in science education, developmental capabilities for critical thinking, and non-traditional education settings. The purpose of this work is to create appropriately sequenced standards bundles for a supplementary science program called the Kellogg F.I.E.L.D program in Palmer, Alaska. To build these 3-dimensional standards bundles, I compared, aligned, and synthesized the existing F.I.E.L.D program standards with the Alaska State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and current research in best practices...
