Describing Typical Capstone Course Experiences From a National Random Sample

“Results suggest that institutions have multiple approaches to the capstone course, but that these differences are rarely associated with institutional size, type of funding, or degree offered.” (p.281) “Moreover, our survey results suggest that capstone courses share common pedagogical purposes such as integrating learned material and extending and applying learned material.” (p.283) “These projects are presented in research reports with a minimum page length and adoption of a standard reference style (i.e., APA).” (p.284-285)
