Doctorial writing



Based on what you have learned in this week’s readings and additional resources, create a presentation that addresses each of the following points. You may use PowerPoint, Prezi, Screencast-O-Matic, or another program you are familiar with.

Perform an Internet or library search for a doctoral dissertation that is no more than 15 years old in your area of research interest whose research conforms to the notions of good science as described in your readings.

  1. Using the vocabulary and concepts from the reading, describe your selection process and how your selection satisfied it.
  2. Characterize the dissertation; was it qualitative or quantitative? How do you know?
  3. Summarize the research with a focus on the hypothesis and the role theory played in the work.
  4. Describe the data collection process and analysis mechanisms employed using appropriate examples, supported with authoritative citations.

Be sure to completely address all of the prompts for each bullet point. Use clear headings that allow your professor to know which bullet you are addressing on the slides in your presentation. Support your content with at least three (3) citations throughout your presentation. Make sure to reference the citations using the APA writing style for the presentation. Include a reference slide at the end. Follow best practices for PowerPoint and Prezi presentations related to text size, color, images, effects, wordiness, and multimedia enhancements (be sure to include these as they are prominent categories in the scoring guide).

  • Title slide (1 slide)
  • Characterization of research (1-2 slides)
  • Research summary, with a focus on hypothesis and theory (5-7 slides)
  • Data collection and analysis processes (5-7 slides)
  • References (1-2 slides)

Your presentation should range from 15 – 20 minutes in length.
