Description

The aim of this study is to determine whether there is a correlation (and thereby a vulnerability) between an active school shooter incident occurring and the time of day being before or after formalized class (before school, lunchtime, after school). These times of day may be more at-risk opportunities for school shootings because there is increased independence of movement for students, staff, and visitors. Research such as this is of the upmost importance because administrators have the ability to institute precautionary measures that could decrease future possibilities of shootings and mitigate the consequences of shootings. In short, the aim of this research is to determine whether certain periods of time in a school setting are more vulnerable to school shootings than others. The data to be used in this study is publicly available in excel format and originates from the K-12 School Shooting Database collected by the Navy Postgraduate School (NPS). For the purposes of this research and statistical analysis, it has been converted and recoded into SPSS.
