MSU School of Criminal Justice

Overview:
Virtual Poster Sessions offer students in CJ811, Design and Analysis in Criminal Justice Research, the opportunity to collaborate and display the results of data analysis to provide examples of data-driven decision making. For this project, students select a relevant criminal justice research question, then use ANGEL to create a literature review, draw conclusions from data analysis (created in SPSS), and discuss implications of findings. Rather than write a paper to present their results, students use Google Sites to create a Web page that displays their work, creating a repository of learning resources for other students in the course. This presentation will discuss the development of this project, and how it can be implemented in both online and face-to-face courses of diverse subject matter.
