The Practice of Statistics: Putting the Pieces Together
Capstone courses in statistics teach students how to apply their learned skills as if they were professional statisticians. It enables them to tie together ideas and methods from their undergraduate course work to solve problems. Students are presnted with a series of 'experiences.' They are required to work in teams to collect data, then individually to solve the problem and present written and oral reports. The 'experiences' expose students to additional challenges they might encounter on the job.
