2 PHILOSOPHY Created to nurture the pursuit of freethinking individuals, the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) will embrace all discourse, convictions, and philosophies in order to stimulate academic innovation, ethical practices, and intellectual understanding. This commitment shall be embodied through the diversity of all who walk the campuses of the university, in a unified effort promoting scholarly works free of ideological intolerance, for the benefit of all humanity and in the spirit of the self-determination of this great republic. VISION The vision for The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and College of Education Doctoral Program in Curriculum and Instruction includes: being a world leader in the integration of teaching and learning, advancement of the knowledge base through research and scholarship and leadership in service and outreach; providing students close contact with faculty that are both highly accomplished and educationally involved; offering a rich selection of courses with a theory-grounded exploration of key issues in educational practice; providing a wide variety of teaching, research, and professional development experiences; offering a distinctive approach to educational issues that combines rigorous intellectual inquiry with a close connection to professional practice. Those earning the Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction will be outstanding scholars and research practitioners. The graduates will be recognized as stewards of knowledge by generating new knowledge, understanding the intellectual history of the field, using the best ideas and practices in current work, and representing that knowledge to others both within and outside the field. Graduates will have an obligation to their field in helping preserve the best while promoting change and improvement. Through its Doctoral Program the College will demonstrate its world leadership in preparing professionals who provide guidance and exemplary educational and related services to improve the lives of individuals in a changing and complex global society.

3 Student Learning Outcomes provide for graduates to: lead and administer curriculum programs with a high degree of competence; supervise professionals and paraprofessionals in a variety of educational settings; using multiple assessment methodologies; develop, apply and evaluate assessments, curricular materials, and scientifically research based instructional methods; synthesize in-depth knowledge of major theories, philosophies, and current issues in curriculum; design, conduct, assess and evaluate qualitative and quantitative research studies in Curriculum and Instruction and in specialization areas; and analyze knowledge demonstrated by original research and scholarly contributions to the field of Curriculum and Instruction through publication and presentation of research findings at the local, state, regional, national and/or international levels. THE PROCESS OF DOCTORAL WORK A doctoral program covers several dimensions. Students should understand that they have to move and complete these dimensions one at a time. Although these dimensions seem to overlap students should not try to do all at the same time. In a doctoral program there are distinct reading, research, and writing processes that culminate in the Comprehensive Examinations and the Dissertation. These dimensions are: Program of Studies: Course work (in this program 57 SCH program courses and 9 SCH Dissertation), Comprehensive Examination: They will reflect how students bring all their course work together, understand scholarship and identify their own interests within a larger picture of educational inquiry. It has to be successfully completed before the Dissertation Proposal is started and before taking dissertation hours. Dissertation Proposal: Includes writing and successfully defending the Dissertation Proposal and obtaining IRB approval to proceed with the research. The Dissertation Proposal involves: statement of the research problem, an outline of the literature review and/or theoretical framework, methodology or research design. Dissertation: This includes: Research in the field data collection, analysis of data, findings (which will last at least one full semester). Writing the dissertation (which usually requires at least one full semester or more). Oral Dissertation Defense. During the initial courses students receive an orientation on the expectations and goals of research, the process of research, field work, how to use e-library resources, and the reading process. Students will also be informed on how to form a doctoral committee, the role of the committee, the writing process which will include several revisions, the APA Manual use, ethics and responsibilities of a student/scholar/researcher, plagiarism, and net-etiquette when sending professional s. The handbook provides guidelines and procedures to assist students going through the program. The doctorate is often referred to as a terminal degree, but it is actually the beginning and the gate to the academic future of the graduate. Revised April 2015 Page 3

Revised April 2015 Page 11

12 Description: The UTRGV doctoral comprehensive examination consists of three written examinations, each one pertaining to a specific area or topic that is addressed in a doctoral-level education course. To allow a more comprehensive picture of what the students know, the questions are drawn from the program content areas of Research Applications (i.e., EDFR 8300 Research Methods in Education, EDFR 8301 Qualitative Research, or EDFR 8302 Quantitative Research and Research Electives), from the Core (i.e. the EDD C&I. Program s Curriculum Core), and from the areas of Specialization (i.e., Bilingual Studies, Early Childhood, Educational Technology, Higher Education Teaching, Literacy, Math Education and Science Education) If two questions are chosen, Research or C&I can be combined with the Specialization. The comprehensive examination questions are developed by the lead faculty in the areas of Research, C&I and the seven Specializations in cooperation with the students faculty advisors. Thus at least three different full-time faculty members in the College of Education will participate in writing the questions. The scoring of each student s answers will be conducted by at least two or three instructors (first and second reader, and a third if disagreement about the grading exists between the first two readers). Usually, the first, second and (tentative) third reader have written the questions for each of the three Comprehensive Examination areas. In each administration the same C&I and Research question is given to every Cohort member and the same specialization question is given to each member of the specialization group in a Cohort. Additional Comprehensive Examinations maybe scheduled if students complete their program courses in a fall semester or if students have to retake individual portions of an examination. The examination will be conducted on two days: One part of the Comprehensive Examination is scheduled on Friday (afternoon) and two parts on the subsequent Saturday (morning and afternoon). Although students are encouraged to start collecting research materials and writing their dissertation proposal when attending Research and Specialization courses they may not defend their dissertation proposal until they have passed their Comprehensive Examination. Procedures Approximately two to three months prior to taking the comprehensive examination, faculty who will write the questions are appointed. Approximately at that time students must apply for their comprehensive examination. The Director of the EDD C&I Program sets the dates for spring and fall. Students may use the form attached to this document (Appendix #6) and submit it to the Director of the program for processing. Comprehensive examinations are conducted in spring, summer, and fall semesters as needed. Approval to Take the Comprehensive Examination After the student applies for the comprehensive examination, the Office of the Director of the EDD C&I checks to determine if the student has met all requirements to take the examination. A letter or is then sent to the student indicating approval to take the examination, along with the date, time, and location of the examination. Grading of the Examination Revised April 2015 Page 12

13 Within five working days after the student completes the comprehensive examination, the Office of the Director of the EDD C&I will send the student s examination responses to the advisor and to the faculty members who wrote the questions. The faculty members are responsible for grading the examinations and returning the grades and responses back to the director within 15 working days. Grading is conducted blind (i.e. student names are replaced by codes at the Department Office), with faculty members evaluating each area. The results of each individual question of the comprehensive examination will be one of the following: The grading system for each question will consist of the following ratings (0 to 2 are NCATE Assessments): 2 - On Target (a) High Pass, A = (b) Pass, B = Met with Weakness (c) Low Pass C = (d) Oral Defense Required D = : Not Met (e) Fail (Retake Exam/Section) F = In case of the Oral Defense Required the faculty member who graded the question and the student s advisor or another faculty member from the student s examination committee will meet the student and listen to the student elaborate his/her response(s) to the question(s). The two faculty members will decide on the final grade for that question within 10 working days after the oral defense. If a student has passing grades in all three answers he/she can immediately continue with the Dissertation and enroll in a Dissertation Course. If a student fails any of the three questions, he/she must retake a similar question (or questions) from the same general area(s) within the next academic year. Students have two opportunities to pass all three questions from the exam. Should the student fail any portion of the comprehensive examination a second time, the student shall not be eligible for a doctoral degree in Education at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Notification of Examination Results The results of the examination will be recorded by the Director of the program and submitted to the Dean of the Graduate College. Revised April 2015 Page 13

14 DISSERTATION RESEARCH COMMITTEE As soon as the student is exploring ideas what his/her research/dissertation will be about, the student shall approach a faculty member of the College of Education with expertise in his/her selected specialization area asking for agreement that he/she will act as advisor and chairperson (or co-chair) of the student s dissertation research committee. The candidate, in cooperation with the Dissertation Research Committee Chair, will assemble a dissertation research committee (i.e. ask faculty with the approval of the Chair to participate as committee members). The Director of the EDD C&I Program will appoint the Chair and the Committee. The candidate s committee has the responsibility of supervising the preparation of the dissertation. The membership of the committee consists of three to four members, all of whom must hold graduate faculty status at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. At a minimum, the composition of the dissertation research committee will be as follows: 1. A Chair (or two co-chairs) from within the College of Education holding graduate faculty status and one with expertise in the specialization area to which the student has been accepted. 2. Two faculty members within the College of Education holding graduate faculty status. 3. Students have the right to petition for a fourth member for their committee. It is the responsibility of the student to provide the chosen individual s curriculum vitae and a letter from that individual acknowledging interest in participating in the process. The fourth member may be external (i.e. from another UTRGV School or College or another graduate degree granting Institution). Committee members who are leaving UTRGV employment or are retiring cannot continue to serve as regular committee members or chair. They have to be approved as external members. The Application for Dissertation Committee form (Appendix #5) must be completed and filed with the Program Director well in advance of the proposal defense. The form is also available on the program Website. DISSERTATION PROPOSAL AND INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD (IRB) The candidate for the Doctor of Education develops a dissertation proposal (in APA style, most current edition) under the supervision of the committee chair with inputs from all other committee members. Individual faculty members may review and comment on hard copy or by . Please refer to the program Website for a link to the IRB: The student must have received the approval of the Dissertation Chair, the Specialization Coordinator, and the EDD C&I Program Director prior to the oral defense of the dissertation proposal. By the time of the defense the student has the drafts of the first three chapters of his/her dissertation completed. The proposal is usually supported by a power-point presentation. After successfully defending the Dissertation Proposal the student must submit the proposal to and request permission by the IRB to start the Dissertation. Every dissertation involving human subjects must have approval of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to the start. The APPLICATION FOR THE DEFENSE OF THE PROPOSAL (APPENDIX #7) is filed with the Office of the EDD Program Director that will arrange the location of the defense. A subsequent memo announcing the date, time and place of the defense is distributed to COE faculty at least ten (10) working days prior to the oral defense. A draft of the dissertation proposal is filed with the Office of the EDD Program Director. A copy of the letter of approval from the IRB will be filed with the Office of the EDD Program Director as soon as it is received by the student. The student orally defends the proposal before the Dissertation committee. The Dissertation committee shall conduct no defense if a member is not available. A committee member may participate in Revised April 2015 Page 14

15 the proposal defense via telephone or video-conference if necessary. The committee may approve the proposal as presented, approve contingent upon changes and enhancements, or disapprove the proposal and schedule a new defense. All members of the research committee must be in agreement regarding the quality of the proposal. Only when the student has implemented all changes suggested by the committee and the proposal is certified by the Dissertation Chairperson, he/she shall send the APPROVAL form (APPENDIX #8) to the Program Director and the TLI Department Chair announcing the results of the dissertation proposal defense. The Director and the Chair will give final approval. ADVANCEMENT TO CANDIDACY To be advanced to candidacy, the student must have: a) completed Leveling Courses (if such courses are required), b) completed required coursework (i.e. 57 SCH without the Dissertation Courses), c) passed the Comps, d) successfully defended the Dissertation Proposal, e) filed an approved Program of Study (POS) having removed all incomplete grades, f) maintained at least a 3.25 grade point average, and successfully completed the research paper, g) completed/defended the IRB proposal h) DISSERTATION As the dissertation is written, it can be posted by the student with the Dissertation Committee s Chair approval on his/her Website (if it has been established) or provide hard copies so that committee members can monitor progress and provide feedback throughout the entire process. Once enrolled for dissertation credit, the student must be continually enrolled until the completion of the dissertation. If needed, after completion of the 9 dissertation hours, students can fulfill the continuous enrollment requirement by enrolling in EDCI 8391 every semester until the dissertation is completed. During the Dissertation courses, the student will receive a PASS until the Dissertation is completed. The dissertation defense is open to all members of the university community. The dissertation committee chair notifies the Office of the EDD C&I Program Director at least ten (10) working days in advance of the date, time, and location of the final oral defense, and submits to the Office of the EDD C&I Program Director the APPLICATION FOR THE DEFENSE OF THE DISSERTATION (also APPENDIX #7), two written copies of the dissertation to be defended. The Program Director will provide a copy of the written dissertation to the Dean of the Graduate College who will assign a UTRGV Graduate Faculty member, from outside the College of Education, to represent the University during the Dissertation Defense. The dissertation committee and the University s representative constitute the dissertation defense committee. A Website posting and an will be the means for communicating this information to the college and the university community. The Dissertation Committee will not conduct an oral defense if a member is not available. One committee member may participate in the proposal defense via telephone or video conference if necessary. Both the quality of the written dissertation and the candidate s oral defense will be evaluated by the Dissertation Committee. The student will revise the dissertation to include all suggestions for improvement that were made during the defense. If approved, the dissertation is signed by all Dissertation Committee members. Only when the student has implemented all changes suggested by the committee and certified by Revised April 2015 Page 15

The student has the opportunity to have the Dissertation bound through the Library if he/she so desires. GRADUATION A student has a maximum of ten years from the date of first entry into the doctoral program to complete the degree. Under special, documented circumstances, an extension for an additional year may be granted. If a student exceeds the ten year limit, the Dissertation Committee will determine if the student will be permitted to continue and what additional coursework and/or activities will be required to complete the degree. The student must file the form (Appendix #9) with the Office of the Graduate College in accordance with university policy. Please refer to the University Calendar for deadlines. The Dean of the Graduate College must approve the graduation of the candidate for the Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. The Office of the Graduate College will review the academic record of the candidate to ascertain that all degree requirements have been met and forward the student s name and degree information to the Registrar and Provost. SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS All candidates for the Doctor of Education must complete EDCI 8380 Dissertation I, EDCI 8390 Dissertation II and 8391 Dissertation III, in three different semesters. If a student needs more than nine dissertation credits continuous enrollment is required until the dissertation is completed. After completion of EDCI 8391, the candidate must enroll in EDCI 8191 every semester until the doctorate is completed. A student must successfully complete the Program Courses, 57 semester credit hours, (except Dissertation Courses) prior to taking the Comprehensive Examination. The major part of the Comps will entail a written assessment, designed by a group headed by the candidate s Specialization Coordinator. The group consists of up to six faculty members. This examination requires the student to demonstrate deep knowledge of Research, understanding C&I, and detailed comprehension of the specialization area. Although the Program of Study suggests a four-year program, a student has a maximum of ten years to complete the EDD C&I. The successful defense of the dissertation and completion of all requirements lead to the award of the Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from UTRGV. Students have to purchase the TK 20 for the EDD C&I Program. It will be used in the majority of courses. Revised April 2015 Page 16
