Faculty and Doctoral Student Research

The Educational Inquiry, Measurement, and Evaluation PhD program encourages faculty and PhD students to participate in educational research. The students are assigned to work with BYU faculty members on research during each semester of their enrollment.

The culmination of student experience in the EIME PhD program is a doctoral dissertation. The dissertation may focus on a substantive problem in the student's content area of specialization or on an unresolved methodological issue. In either case, the study should make a clear contribution to educational research and inquiry methods.

As doctoral students work toward their dissertations or other research projects, we invite them to share their research on this page. BYU faculty research and links to other educational research are also available through links on this page.
