  • I am after all, a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology
  • Its taking much longer than we expectedTell my story about comps over the summer, internship an additional year, confrontation with department about this business, and the dissertation topic with Bill.
  • Finding people that careTalk about Kari letting me dictate my thesis (could not write any more), Bill—just get out of there.
  • Identified needs: librarian for lit review, methodologist for methods, statistician for results chapter, Suicide and homicide were in the mix.
  • Bill moving the paragraphs back and forth
  • The Dissertation Template is a comprehensive, 24-page outline that you can use for your dissertation.   Whether your university has a template or you’ve begun the dissertation without one, this guide will be helpful to you as it includes a detailed descriptions of chapters 1-5 and subsections that help you, the doctoral student, flesh-out each chapter.  The template is written to comply with most university requirementsThe Dissertation Template includes:Table of contents with hyperlinks to particular chaptersPage numbering (including roman numeral front matter)Reference examplesAverage word count per sectionChapters 1-5 guidelinesAPA 6th Edition formattingAutomatic Bookmarks (clickable to section)
  • The Sample Size/Power Analysis Calculator with Write-up is a tool for anyone struggling with power analysis. Simply identify the test to be conducted and the degrees of freedom where applicable (explained in the document), and the sample size/power analysis calculator will calculate your sample size for a power of .80 of an alpha of .05 for small, medium and large effect sizes.  The sample size/power analysis calculator then presents the write-up with references which can easily be integrated in your dissertation document.
  • Statistics Solutions provides a data analysis plan template based on your selected analysis. You can use this template to develop the data analysis section of your dissertation or research proposal. If you do not know your analysis, you can figure it out using our select statistical analysis tool.The template includes research questions stated in statistical language, analysis justification and assumptions of the analysis. Simply edit the blue text to reflect your research information and you will have the data analysis plan for your dissertation or research proposal. For an example, see the data analysis template for One Way MANCOVA.
  • SPSS Video TutorialsIn these exciting SPSS video tutorials, Dr. James Lani and colleagues will provide step-by-step instruction on describing the statistical analyses, how to assess assumptions and how to interpret those analyses. The video is a great opportunity to pause and run your own analyses in tandem with the presenter.Statistical Analysis: A Guide on Dissertation and Thesis Statistics in SPSSDownloadable manual that outlines the most common statistical tests used for dissertation statistics. In the manual, students are given each analyses described using real-world examples and shown how to conduct each analysis in a step-by-step manner. Also includes examples of the test, example data set used in instruction, syntax to assist with conducting the analysis, interpretation and sample write-up of the results

    • 7. Clear Research Questions • • • • • Statistical language Differences, influence, or relationships Know your IV’s and DV’s Keep your terms consistent Match the number of research questions and hypotheses • Make it understandable to lay readers (or waste a month of your life)
    • 8. Participants Vs. • • • • Can you secure them Can you secure enough of them Don’t worry about representativeness Incentivize if necessary
    • 9. Instruments/Materials • • • Use valid and reliable instruments Don’t make your own survey Use secondary data if possible
    • 10. Procedure • How are you going to administer those instruments to those participants? • Paper and pencil, web-based, or interview?
    • 11. Data Analysis Plan • Selecting the correct analysis • Level of measurement of scales and phraseology of research questions • Assumptions of analyses • Justification of analyses (SS Membership solution)
