UWindsor prof brings analytical eye to Chatham-Kent well water issue

A teaching opportunity that mirrors the conditions and pressures of the real world doesn’t come along every day.

So when the University of Windsor’s Joel Gagnon was approached to analyze well water at the centre of a contentious debate in Chatham-Kent, he knew he had to get involved.

“This is the exact opportunity we want for students in our field school,” said Dr. Gagnon, department head in Earth and Environmental Sciences. “It gives us real word problems where they can create data that may have real value to decision makers.”

Troubled testing: UWindsor prof warns concussion testing for young athletes may be flawed

Many young athletes who have suffered a concussion may be at risk of returning to play too early because of invalid baseline testing, warns a University of Windsor professor.

Psychology associate professor Chris Abeare recently completed a study of 7,897 athletes between 10 and 21-years-old and found that 55.7 per cent failed at least one of four validity measures, suggesting that their baseline test scores are lower than their actual cognitive ability.
