Dissertation Proposal and IRB Documents (DRAFT)

I just realized that I sent Chapter Three off to my advisor almost a week ago and didn’t post it here to the blog. So, with no further ado, here is the monster. It’s 421 pages, but my advisor has already read chapters 1 and 2 and hasn’t cut very much. This draft already includes his chagnes. He’s got chapter 3, which is only about 60 pages, right now. We’ll see how much, though, gets past the rest of the committee… and into the final dissertation.

I’ve also finished a draft of my initial IRB documents: The consent form, the confidentiality agreement, the data collection documents, and the IRB application:

Also, if anyone can offer any feedback at this point, I always appreciate that. Thanks, as always, for reading – even if it’s just this post. ;)
