Capstone Project Help: Critical Analysis

Often there are many contributing causes in the development of a specific problem/issue. These causes may be complex and may involve individuals, institutions, and/or environmental factors, for example. This complexity increases the difficulty in creating a solution for the problem. Thus, prior to developing solutions, there must be a critical analysis of the problem/issue. The analysis must address the many potential causes of the problem/issue and determine which had the most impact on its development. Critical analysis relies on the literature and resources that address the specific problem.

Review the resources you collected and summarized in Weeks 4 and 5.
Review the questions in the "Critical Analysis Template," located in the Resources area on the left navigation bar.
Think about the causes of the problem or the issue you have identified, and consider who or what are the major contributors to this problem.
Think about the impacts of the problem.

describe, , the problem/issue and the problem statement you developed.

Identify the major contributors to the problem (who, what) and briefly explain how they contribute to/cause the problem.
Explain at least two causes of the problem.
Explain at least two effects of the problem.

...s largely caused by non-uniform laws across all states including limitations of passengers for teen permit holders (in the most fatal, some have no restrictions) and no restrictions on night time driving. Add alcohol to the mix of inexperience and the power/right to drive due to being licensed can lead to some very bad decisions and fatal outcomes. Meanwhile the study by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (2006) explored the causes behind adolescent drinking, abuse of the substance and how this contributes to Teen DUI tragedies. The problem, NIAAA (2006) proposes is complex but one issue in eradicating it has to do with lack of uniform effective programs that can be deployed across the US. Why do teens drink and abuse alcohol? How can this be mitigated and prevented? How can tragedies like DUI be avoided? These essentially are the questions explored. Causes include peer pressure, social drinking as normative behavior, the excitement brought on by social drinking, lack of parental guidance and lack of effective acquisition deterrence in society (so that the youth are barred from buying alcohol).
