All But Dissertation…The time is now!

I remember beginning my doctoral degree a few years ago and hearing the term ABD… I had no idea what that meant or what emotions would join these three little letters. On the eve of the 2015 spring semester at Montana State University, I have completed all of my coursework and have arrived at the point in my graduate career where it is considered ABD, all but dissertation.  I am filled with excitement to begin this journey!

My current research questions:

1.  What are administrators’ perceptions about specific formative reading assessment measures for determining elementary students’ level of proficiency according to ELA Reading Standards?

2.  What are teachers’ perceptions of specific formative reading assessment measures for determining elementary students’ level of proficiency according to ELA Reading Standards?

3.  What are administrators perceptions about formative reading assessment measures that provide the most accurate information about elementary students’ reading skills to plan next step instruction?

4.  What are teachers perceptions about formative reading assessment measures that provide the most accurate information about elementary students’ reading skills to plan next step instruction?
