Why Use Dissertations?
Dissertations may be useful to your research in a variety of ways:
- For EdD students, dissertations provide examples of how others have conducted their research and structured their dissertation
- Dissertations are often useful sources of tests and measures that are freely available and have been assessed for validity and reliability.
- Dissertations provide a thorough review of the literature; the bibliography may be a gold mine of additional relevant research on your topic.
