A Policy Analysis


Capstone Project

For the Capstone Project, you will complete a policy analysis, program evaluation, or administrative analysis. The Capstone Project is due by Day 7 of Week 10.

To complete the Capstone Project, you will write a paper that addresses the following:

Getting Started

Write 2–3 sentences describing a problem or issue related to public administration, public policy, or nonprofit management and leadership.
Identify which type of Capstone paper (i.e., policy analysis, program evaluation, or administrative analysis) would be appropriate for this particular problem or issue.

Research Question

Identify your research question.
Write a 1- to 2-page rationale for your research question, including why the question is relevant to public administration, public policy, or nonprofit management and leadership.

Literature Review

Write a 12- to 14-page literature review that includes a minimum of 20–25 relevant scholarly articles, research reports, and/or other academic sources. Be sure to follow the literature review guidelines provided in the Machi and McEvoy (2012) text.

Types of Data and Research Methods

Write 4–5 pages explaining the types of data that may help you answer your research question, including which research method might be best if you were to collect data for your Capstone Project and why.

Conclusions and Recommendations

Write 3–4 pages explaining conclusions you might make, based on the analysis of the literature you found and your proposed research. Include recommendations, as well as how you might disseminate this information to relevant stakeholders.

For additional guidance, refer to the Capstone Project Guidelines document in this week’s Learning Resources.
F.Y.I. Stating the Problem or Issue (WEEK 1 ASSIGNMENT)

The first step in the research process is to determine an area in need of exploration. In public administration, policy analysis, or nonprofit management this starts with identifying a problem or issue within the field. For this Discussion and in preparation for your Capstone Project, you will consider a problem or issue that you think needs to be addressed in public administration, public policy, and/or nonprofit management.

Post by Day 3 a description of the problem or issue you selected. Explain why you think this problem needs to be addressed and how it is significant to public administration, public policy, or nonprofit management.
