In this course, candidates will complete the thesis, collaborate with their research site, and coordinate with their thesis mentor. In coordination with EDU670 Data Analysis and Statistics, this independent study course guides students through the process of designing and defending their thesis research proposal (at the mid-semester mark). After successfully defending the thesis proposal (Chapter One, Chapter Two, & Chapter 3), candidates will complete Chapters Four and Five of the thesis and successfully defend their completed thesis project and paper. Working directly with the assigned thesis mentor and structured on each candidate’s individual abilities, topics may include idea organization and development, research methodology, data analysis and statistics, and writing techniques (word choice, advanced grammar, etc.). Plagiarism and citation of sources are also covered. Individualized attention is an integral part of the course.
