Description/Abstract

At our institution, all seniors are required to do a capstone project. For the Biology program, the capstone course is a senior level research course that lasts two terms, in which our students are expected to explore, plan, and execute a research topic. The students do not receive any specialized training in research techniques, and have to rely on techniques taught in regular biology and chemistry laboratory classes. Correlations between the students’ level of success in upper level chemistry and biology lab courses and grade level in the senior capstone course are examined through a survey of graduating students.
