To prepare for the form and style review, use the following checklist, which is the same checklist we use when we review capstone manuscripts and the checklist we return to the student and committee along with their completed review.
A dissertation or project study is a formal manuscript written to address a gap in educational practice, thus resolving a local problem. Walden dissertations consist of five chapters (Chapter 1: Introduction to the Study, Chapter 2: Literature Review, Chapter 3: Research Method, Chapter 4: Reflections and Conclusions, Chapter 5: Discussion, Conclusions, and Recommendations). Walden project studies consist of four sections (Section 1: The Problem, Section 2: The Methodology, Section 3: The Project, Section 4: Reflections and Conclusions).
Access samples of published dissertations through the Walden library website under Databases. You can also access the Office of Research and Doctoral Services's Doctoral Capstone and Project Resources for additional information on the dissertation and project study process, including the rubrics and the EdD Project Guide. If you have writing or APA questions about the proposal or final doctoral study, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
