Hello Dr. Guy,

I am reading your book, The Dissertation Warrior, and following the instruction on page 113. Here is my purpose statement!

The purpose of this qualitative case study is to examine the utilization of virtual reality massively multiplayer online world platform for language acquisition of adult learners at Second Life in 2022.
Hello Dr. Guy! Here is my first crack at the purpose statement -

The purpose of this quantitative study is to examine the parental reporting and/or treatment activation for children who experience mild traumatic brain injury (“concussion”) in recreational sports or play in the United States from 2019-2021.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Currently reading your book & got to the purpose statement task so here goes: The purpose of this quantitative study is to examine disaster preparedness and inclusivity among families of access and functional children specifically, autistic children in Florida currently.
I'm just 1 week into my dissertation. Reading your book. Here's my purpose statement:

The purpose of this quantitative study is to examine the attachment and object relations experience of adults who experienced one parenting making a false allegation of sexual abuse against the other parent during parent's divorce.

THANK YOU Dr. Guy. Shredded my whole lit review matrix (about 550 quotes) and am in the midst of sorting. I can already see how this will make it SO MUCH easier to write. I was in lit review hell and I think I'm on the way out now. (And yes- my husband and children think I'm crazy. And my husband may be getting jealous of how much I keep saying "OMG I love Dr. Guy.") 😁

Your book and methods changed my life as a PhD student and I recommend them to every doctoral student I know! Seriously grateful for you and your work!
Purpose statement draft from Chap 22:
The purpose of this quantitative study is to measure and compare the individual and total Asset Scores of 2,000 demographically and socioeconomically diverse adults in 2021 using Shepherd Community’s Ten Asset Survey (45-agree/disagree questionnaire), which measures faith, health, support, emotional stability, mental acuity, models, self-advocacy, knowledge of dominant culture, and future orientation.
Hey Dr. Guy! Thank you for your work to make a complex process more clear and for your help along the way. I thought you might enjoy a pic of my "shredding it" stage. It was so very helpful!
I just started reading the Dissertation Warrior last evening and I am having a hard time putting it down! This is a great book and very inspiring. Thanks so much for 😘writing it. I am a program at SNHU and find it invaluable. A touchstone for so many questions I never get to ask Professors.
Spending some time with your book and my purpose statement:

The purpose of my mixed methods case study is to examine the kindergarten teachers’ perceptions of play and playful pedagogy and describe how their perceptions affect their classroom environments in the Pennsylvania school districts serviced by Colonial IU 20 in the fall of 2021.
10 minutes (more like 60) given this morning to something that matters to me. 👊🏽
I watched Webinar 1 - Foundations did the homework and read the chapter in The Dissertation Warrior about creating a purpose statement. Could I please have some feedback on my purpose statement?

The purpose of this qualitative phenomenological study is to explore the effects of faculty, support services, and campus culture on students of color during their Freshman year at a predominantly white campus.
I found a survey I would like to use for my dissertation study. I emailed the author for permission to use the survey, but they are not at the university they listed in the paper that discusses the survey. Any suggestions on how to get permission to use the survey or contact the author?

I just used the formula from The Dissertation Warrior to write my study's purpose statement and welcome any thoughts or feedback:

The purpose of this mixed methods study is to examine the skills and strategies employed by high school teachers in Connecticut who continually and effectively use the Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS) instructional method in 2021 .
Hi, My name is Ben. I am from Thailand. Well, I just want to thank Dr. White for tips. I can't afford the service. I used the free info available from the website for my dissertation. I completed my PhD last June. I am truely grateful for the info.
late post: Completed Chapter 13 of The Dissertation Warrior. This is what I spent the 10 minutes required on something that matters to me
If you have not worked with Dr. Guy individually with the Dissertation Mentorship subscription, you are missing out on a great opportunity to have the guidance you need to get beyond ABD! Dr. Guy helped to encourage me to get my dissertation proposal approved and I begin data collection today! Work with him and you WILL get beyond ABD!

Many moons ago on this day, I submitted chapters 1-3 of my dissertation to my chair. I sent it via FedEx Overnight with some chocolates and a red pen. I figured it would be seen and addressed faster this way than via email. In the week’s wait in between getting feedback, I finished my ethics (IRB) application. Within a few weeks I was collecting data. A profound lesson that summer was “If I don’t finish this thing now, I may never finish,” and the focus that this allowed. These many years later, I am so thankful for that version of me that was “with it” enough to read, read, read…. And then, and only then, get to some writing.

If your dissertation chair’s / advisor’s and committee members’ emails are leaving you baffled, it’s time to reach out for an audio or video call. You’ve paid your school tens of thousands of dollars: they should take your call! Most advisors will speak with their candidates — but for the approx. 20% of you that say this is not a possibility, think of this: If you paid a car mechanic $200 for some repairs, you’d expect them to take your phone call! Why would you not expect the same from a school that you’ve paid 250-500 times that amount? Speak to your advisor when you are confused. In most of my experience, they are eager to help!

19/11/2020

Dissertation Emails Part 3: There are a few ways to make get faster responses to your emails to your dissertation chair / advisor and committee members: (1) Keep it short! (2) Give them what they need, and (3) Make it EASY for them to reply. See my video for full details. What tips would you ad to this list?

17/11/2020

Ask potential dissertation advisors/chairs and committee members how long it takes them to respond to small questions and draft reviews via email. I’ve known candidates that had not heard from their chairs in over a MONTH after 4+ emails, and 3+ phone calls! Some have had to get the dean or upper admin involved! What is the longest you’ve ever waited for a reply?
