Data Analysis and Interpretation Capstone

The Capstone project will allow you to continue to apply and refine the data analytic techniques learned from the previous courses in the Specialization to address an important issue in society. You will use real world data to complete a project with our industry and academic partners. For example, you can work with our industry partner, DRIVENDATA, to help them solve some of the world\'s biggest social challenges! DRIVENDATA at www. drivendata.org, is committed to bringing cutting-edge practices in data science and crowdsourcing to some of the world\'s biggest social challenges and the organizations taking them on. Or, you can work with our other industry partner, The Connection (www. theconnectioninc.org) to help them better understand recidivism risk for people on parole seeking substance use treatment. For more than 40 years, The Connection has been one of Connecticut\'s leading private, nonprofit human service and community development agencies. Each month, thousands of people are assisted by The Connection\'s diverse behavioral health, family support and community justice programs. The Connection\'s Institute for Innovative Practice was created in 2010 to bridge the gap between researchers and practitioners in the behavioral health and criminal justice fields with the goal of developing maximally effective, evidence-based treatment programs. A major component of the Capstone project is for you to be able to choose the information from your analyses that best conveys results and implications, and to tell a compelling story with this information. By the end of the course, you will have a professional quality report of your findings that can be shown to colleagues and potential employers to demonstrate the skills you learned by completing the Specialization.
