Your task for this assignment is to do a review, as objectively as possible, of an EdD or PhD dissertation created by an LU faculty member or student. Your task is to discern the “quality” of the research in the form of a “research review.” Reviewing a dissertation does not mean that you are seeking to find editorial flaws in the dissertation document. Instead, you are seeking to compare the dissertation to a standard of research quality. You will be looking at both strengths and weaknesses of the research. That is also called “peer review.” Dissertations, including your dissertation, are public documents that are open to review. This makes for better quality and will improve your research work. For this assignment, you will be conducting a review of a dissertation to learn about research by carefully reading research.
