response to leon:

Hello Fellow Classmates and Professor!

Wow I cannot believe we have come to the conclusion of this class! It seems like we have started it yesterday and I was struggling to find a good theme to talk about throughout the whole class (which seemed impossible to do at first, by the way!), and now we are done! I have truly enjoyed working with all of you guys, and reading about your valuable feedback and comments, which helped me revise some of my work! Through this class I have learned some awesome new techniques when it comes to writing papers and also common (and not so common) issues that afflict today’s society.

Although I have done my very best to put together my first ever Power Point Presentation for Unit 9, I do not feel 100% confident about it, as I feel like there’s always space and opportunity for improvement. In particular, if I could change anything, it would be to add one more source and some more visuals to further prove my point. I always feel like there is never enough information when one is trying to make an impact and talk about something dear to one’s heart, and in the case of my presentation, I didn’t want to put too much information on it and risk losing the message.

I would love to pursue this theme outside the classroom and really make a substantial change in society, so that my child and all other bilingual children can have more resources available to them in the future and stress the importance of speaking different languages all the way up to the academic level. I know social media is the way to go to make sure the message is mainstreamed, but I don’t believe a power point presentation is the best way to push the message forward, so I would choose to make a video presentation rather than a power point in that case.

Thank you all again, and I wish all of you good luck for this all other classes to follow!

response to zachary: Some changes that I would make to my digital media presentation is maybe the integration of my voice in the slides.  It is difficult to actually relay something like a power point presentation without your voice because you want to avoid cluttering the presentation with text.  I was always taught to have minimal wording and actually explain to the audience rather than read from a slide.  I would also maybe include some video clips in the slide to help the audience visualize what I’m talking about

What prior knowledge did you bring to this course?

Read Chapter 13: “Prisons and Jails”

Incarceration has become the preferred method of punishment for serious offenders. Felony convicts are sentenced to prisons. Misdemeanor defendants found guilty are confined to jails. All confinement facilities must deal with the issues of inmate classification and security levels, with detailed systems in place at larger facilities.

Read Chapter 14: “Prison Life”

This chapter describes the realities of prison life today, including prisoner lifestyles, prison subcultures, sexuality in prison, prison violence, and prisoners’ rights and grievance procedures. It will discuss both the inmate world and the staff world. A separate section on women in prison details the social structure of women’s prisons, daily life in these facilities, and the various types of female inmates. The chapter begins with a brief overview of early research on prison life.

response to samatha:

Rated Capacity means the number of offenders/bodies that a facility can hold at one time due to the number of beds. The officers do a daily count to see what the housing number is at to not only account for all inmates, but to know when they are getting close to maximum capacity.

Operational Capacity is the actual number that the jail can safely hold/house without going over capacity and without compromising inmate or deputy safety.

Design Capacity is the design or format of the jail and how it is arranged. It also gives tells the number of offenders it can hold with still being in code.

In order to ease the overcrowding of jails, low crime offenders should be either given probation depending on their background or can be placed on an electronic monitoring system type sentence. That way they can still attend and maintain a job, counseling, and have family support. I also strongly agree with the work release program that allows offenders that have committed non violent CM’s to be released for work and report back for night time. Placing someone in jail to serve time for minor traffic violations or CM’s just adds more bodies and takes up the room that is needed for violent offenders.

response to resha:

Prison capacity is described in three different functions. The first being Rated Capacity. Rated Capacity is the number of inmates that a prison would be able to handle according to the judgment of experts. (Schmalleger, 2017). The second is Operational Capacity. Operational Capacity is the number of inmates that a prison would be able to effectively accommodate based on management considerations. (Schmalleger, 2017). Tthe last one is Design Capacity. Design Capacity is the number of inmates a prison was supposed to be able to hold when it was built. (Schmalleger, 2017).

Prison overcrowding is one of the biggest issues in prisons today. There are 219,000 inmates in federal prisons compared to the 25,000 in 1980. About half are drug offenses. (Knafo,2013). I personally do not feel that drug offenders should be given so much time. I am also not suggesting that they should not be held responsible for the decision that they have made but I’ve seen a murderer get 12 years and personally know drug offenders that have gotten 20 plus years. It is crazy to me. I think drug offenders should serve less time for their sentences and that would free up plenty space and reduce some of the overcrowding. If they were to send 20 percent fewer drug offenders to prison, the federal government would save $1.29 billion and prisons would save 125,000 bed years. (A bed year is a year worth of prison time from one person. (knafo,2013).

  • response to courtney: Hey everyone. When I came into class I knew some about criminal justice from having law enforcement friends and doing my own kind of research and now I feel so much more educated on this subject! I have been wanting to be a police officer and now after learning so much about the court system and legal terms, I am thinking about taking my career into possibly another direction by going to work in the courts. I learned a lot from the interesting assignments we did as well as our discussions, it was really good to see people taking in the same information I was and seeing it in someone else’s opinion. I think over all I did pretty good with keeping up with the deadlines but now I see that sometimes I should start a little sooner, but as most of y’all, working a full time job with two children is hard so I always felt like I was rushing things. I enjoyed this class so much and I am sad it’s over, maybe I will see you all in another class! Thanks for all the support and help!
  • response to stephanie:

The only prior knowledge that I had before taken this course was based on my personal interaction with police officers and the criminal justice system. I have developed a new positive outlook on law enforcement and our justice system. I think the most important new idea that I encountered would have to be everything regarding my civil rights. Before this class, I did not know much about the rights I have and I think everyone should be educated on them. I believe that I met most of the outcome in my work on this course.

The interaction between my classmates during the discussions has given me a better understanding of the criminal justice system, especially the elements of search and seizure. In the psychology profession, I can use information I learned from this class to help individuals that are involved with the criminal justice system. I really would like to continue to explore punishments provided by the courts, specifically the death penalty.

Describe the developmental issue you are examining for the purpose of this program evaluation, including if the issue is considered typical development or atypical development in nature.

Milestone One Guidelines and Rubric (Draft of Developmental Issue)

For Milestone One, you will submit a draft of your developmental issue (Section I of your final project), including all critical elements listed below. You will utilize research to identify a developmental issue relevant to this course. You are expected to utilize the library to locate two to three articles to provide additional information on the developmental issue that you choose. Developmental issues can be examined from the perspective of the promotion of healthy development, or you may select a particular developmental issue in the form of an impairment or diagnosis. In this milestone, you will describe the selected developmental issue at length, including the distinguishing features, diagnostic criteria (if applicable), and/or key identifiers. You should also include demographic information for the impacted population to include who is at risk, what age range, socioeconomic, gender, culture, or other key information that would distinguish those at risk. This milestone will also include a description of the sociocultural impact of the developmental issue as well as a description and statistics on how the issue impacts communities, organizations, and the field of developmental psychology.

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed in your milestone submission:

I. Select a Developmental Issue: Identify and research a developmental issue for children or adolescents. Developmental issues can be examined from the perspective of the promotion of healthy development, or you may select a particular developmental issue in the form of an impairment or diagnosis.

A. Describe the developmental issue you are examining for the purpose of this program evaluation, including if the issue is considered typical development or atypical development in nature.

i. What distinguishes this issue in terms of criteria, if applicable? For example, are you promoting healthy cognitive development, addressing developmental delays, or addresses an actual diagnostic mental health disorder? What are the criteria or key identifiers for the selected issue?

ii.  What is the primary area or areas of impact across physical, cognitive,   affective, and social domains?

B. Describe the population who is affected by the selected developmental issue, at risk for the selected developmental issue, or who would best be served by a program that promotes healthy development. In other words, is there a primary age range for successfully promoting health for the selected developmental issue? Does this issue affect a particular socioeconomic group? Is the issue gender-specific? Are there cultural considerations or groups that are primarily impacted by the issue?

C. Determine the sociocultural impact that the selected developmental issue has on the field of psychology in general, as well as on communities and organizations in which developmental psychology is practiced

.

i. How common is the developmental issue?

ii. What organizations, societies, or groups exist that promote awareness of the developmental issue

Guidelines for Submission: Students should provide a three-to four-page essay as a Microsoft Word document that thoroughly addresses the critical elements outlined above in APA format. No abstract is necessary, and the three to four pages should be the body; title and reference pages will not be credited as part of the page count.

Analyze why there are two different versions (“Equal variances assumed” and “Equal variances not assumed”) of the t test on the SPSS printout and how you decide which one is more appropriate.

  Provide a substantive contribution that advances the discussion in a meaningful way by identifying strengths of the posting, challenging assumptions, and asking clarifying questions.

 

Analyze why there are two different versions (“Equal variances assumed” and “Equal variances not assumed”) of the t test on the SPSS printout and how you decide which one is more appropriate.

The SPSS introduces two versions of the independent samples t test: one with equal variance assumed and ‘’equal variances not assumed’’. According to Warner, the levene test is used to decide which version of the t test to report. However, if the levene test shows no significant violation of the homogeneity of variance assumption, the researcher will report the ‘’equal variances assumed’’. Moreover, if the levene test indicates that there is equal variances is violated the researcher reports ‘’equal variances not assumed’’ version of the t test (Warner,2013). According to    , the SPSS provides three different types of t test. The independent-samplet test compares the means of two different samples.  Furthermore the samples share variable interest in common but no overlap between the two groups (George, 2016).The two different versions identify which variance will be most appropriate base on the Levene’s test and the variable of interest which is imperative when conducting research.
