In Week 6 of the next dissertation course (DIS/DBA/PSY/PCE/TLC-955), you will submit a revised prospectus. The submission is scored as pass/fail and is worth 400 points.

  • Reflect on the feedback your chair and methodologist (if appropriate) have provided on your prospectus to date.
  • Using the criteria in the prospectus template, complete a self-evaluation of the work you have completed for each section. Based on your self-evaluation and chair feedback, what section(s) of the prospectus do you need to refine and work on in order fully meet the requirements in the criterion tables and to receive a score of “2 – Item Meets Expectations”? Remember, your prosepctus must be approved in the DIS/DBA/PSY/PCE/TLC-955 course in order to pass that course.
  • What information or guidance do you need from your chair and/or methodologist to help you meet expectations on the prospectus criteria?
