Abstract

Drawn from a sample of public and private colleges and universities across the country, the 2011 National Survey of Senior Capstone Experiences focuses on both course- and project-based senior capstone initiatives to examine the purposes, content, organization, administration, and assessment of culminating practices. Designed to be accessible and informative, the report can assist both higher education researchers and practitioners in understanding the potential of capstones to promote student learning and development during the concluding chapter of college.
