3 1. General Information The Master s Thesis and Doctoral Dissertation Manual (hereafter the Manual ) is Rowan University s official document which students must consult and adhere to regarding procedures, formatting, and submission of theses/dissertations as part of their graduation requirements. Because Rowan s thesis/dissertation format and procedures may change from time to time, be sure you use the most recent version of the Manual to produce your thesis/dissertation. Do not use previously submitted theses or dissertations as formatting guidelines as these may use information no longer acceptable. The Manual addresses two kinds of documents as described below. Master Thesis The master thesis is a capstone piece of evidence demonstrating the student s ability to apply the knowledge acquired during the program within the context of a research project. It should be submitted in both a format and writing style of such quality that it meets the scholarly standards set by the profession. The final document must be worthy of publication within a professional journal. The thesis stands as a representative sample of the professional quality of the student, the advisor, and the members of the thesis committee, the program/department, the academic college, and the university. Not all graduate programs at Rowan University require a thesis as partial fulfillment for a Master s degree. Check with your graduate department/program for further information. All copies of theses submitted in partial fulfillment for an advanced degree become the permanent property of Rowan University. Doctoral Dissertation The Doctoral Dissertation is an extended written treatise demonstrating original and independent investigation and achievement. The dissertation should reflect not only mastery of research techniques but also ability to select an important problem for investigation and to deal with it competently. The requirements leading to a Doctoral Degree at Rowan University are designed for a student to demonstrate present capacities as well as future promise for scholarly work. The dissertation stands as a representative sample of the professional quality of the student, the advisor, and the members of the dissertation committee, the program/department, the academic college, and the university. The Doctoral Dissertation is required as partial fulfillment for the doctoral degree in education (Ed.D.) at Rowan University. Every candidate pursuing an advanced degree requiring a thesis/dissertation needs to be aware of the following information: Copyright registration Because the United States is a signatory of the Berne convention copyright is automatically attributed to anything you write and you hold the copyright unless you transfer that right to 3

4 another party. Rowan Library Services recommends that you register your copyright with the US Copyright Office. Electronic Registration is possible and will save you money. Among other benefits registering your copyright will provide a public record of the copyright for claims purposes and if an infringement occurs, it will allow the copyright holder to proceed with a legal claim. For detailed information and to proceed with registration visit the US Copyright internet page: Plagiarism If you include in your thesis/dissertation copyrighted material that goes beyond the limits of fair use, you are responsible for obtaining written permission from the copyright holder. Rowan University takes no responsibility for damages that may arise from copyright violations by a degree candidate. Multiple volumes If your original printed thesis/dissertation exceeds a thickness of two inches, the thesis must be bound in more than one volume. The second volume should contain a title page that duplicates the title page of the first volume. Also, individual identification such as Volume 1 and Volume 2, or some descriptive word such as Appendices must be included on both title pages. All pages in additional volumes must continue the numbering from Volume 1 with the second title page not counted or numbered. Style For the purpose of this Manual, the thesis/dissertation consists of two parts: the preliminary pages and the main body. The preliminary pages include the title, copyright, dedication, acknowledgment, abstract, table of contents, list of tables, and list of figures (not all them may apply). The main body of the thesis/dissertation starts with the first chapter and ends with the very last page of the document. The preliminary pages of the thesis/dissertation must follow strictly the style and format provided in the Manual. To help students accomplish this, we have created electronic templates for each of the preliminary pages (see sections 4 and 7 for further details). Although not mandatory, students are encouraged to use these templates to avoid the need for special formatting. On the other hand, the style for the main body may change from discipline to discipline or from college to college. Therefore, you must consult with your advisor as the most suitable style for your manuscript. The following style manuals are used by most disciplines and can be a good source of information for future archival publications: The Chicago manual of style, 15th ed., University of Chicago Press, Manual of the American Psychological Association, APA Style, 6 th edition. 4

5 MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 6 th edition, NOTE: The style and format guidelines provided in this Manual are based on APA standards, which are the only acceptable style and format for doctoral dissertations. On the other hand, the main body of a master thesis can adhere to other styles as dictated by their corresponding disciplines. Responsibilities It is the student's responsibility to ensure that his thesis/dissertation is formatted and proofread according to the guidelines described in the Manual. In the event that any errors are discovered by the advisor or Chair of the Thesis/Doctoral Committee (see section 2 below), it is the student s responsibility to see that appropriate corrections are made. Any thesis/dissertation, when submitted to the CGCE, which does not adhere to these guidelines, will be returned to the student until completed to the satisfaction of the Dean of CGCE. 2. Approval Process For Master s Thesis Students pursuing a Master s Thesis must be supervised by a Thesis Committee. The Thesis Committee must be comprised of at least two faculty members, including the Chair of the Committee, who is typically the student s advisor. The Thesis Committee is responsible for evaluating and reviewing the content of the thesis from its initial stages up to its final version. The Thesis Committee is also fully responsible for making sure that the thesis is free of typos, obvious grammatical errors, and that it satisfies the format and style prescribed in the Manual. A thesis defense (if required by the program) should not be scheduled until the Thesis Committee is satisfied with the content of the document. Upon approval of the final version of the thesis in format, and style, the Chair of the Thesis Committee must sign Part B of the Thesis Approval Form. The next step consist of: (a) the student submits the signed form to the CGCE Office of the Dean and (b) the student submits the thesis electronically in PDF format to Dr. Forouza Pourkay via address: Once the Thesis Approval Form has been signed in Part C by the Dean of CGCE, it will be submitted to the Registrar and Rowan s Library as described in section 5. This is the final step toward the completion of the Master s degree. NOTE: The Dean of CGCE will not sign Part C of the Thesis Approval Form and will return the thesis back with correction comments to the student and Chair of the Thesis Committee if the format and style do not meet the guidelines of the Manual. 5

6 For Doctoral Dissertation Students pursuing a Doctoral Degree must be supervised by a Dissertation Committee. The Dissertation Committee must be comprised of at least three dissertation committee members, including the Chair of the Dissertation Committee. The Dissertation Committee is responsible for evaluating and reviewing the content of the dissertation from its initial stages up to its final version. The Dissertation Committee is also fully responsible for making sure that the dissertation is free of typos, obvious grammatical errors, and that it satisfies the format and style prescribed in the Manual. A dissertation defense should not be scheduled until the Dissertation Committee is satisfied with the content of the document. For more details, doctoral students must consult the Doctoral Handbook. Upon a successful defense of the dissertation by the candidate, the Dissertation Committee members will sign Part A of the Dissertation Approval Form. Upon approval of the final version of the thesis in format, and style, the Chair and the members of Dissertation Committee must sign Part B of the Dissertation Approval Form. (a) The student submits the signed form to the CGCE Office of the Dean and (b) the student submits the dissertation electronically in PDF format to Dr. Forouza Pourkay via address: The signed Dissertation Approval Form must be forwarded to the Dean of CGCE for his final approval. Once the Dissertation Approval Form has been signed in Part C by the Dean of CGCE, it will be submitted to the Registrar and Rowan Library as described in section 5. This is the final step toward the completion of the doctoral degree. NOTE: The Dean of CGCE will not sign Part C of the Dissertation Approval Form and will return the dissertation back with correction comments to the student and Chair of the Thesis Committee if the format and style do not meet the guidelines of the Manual. 3. Thesis/Dissertation Format This section discusses the standards that candidates must follow in the writing and formatting of their theses/dissertations. Printing & Submission For purposes of review and approval by the thesis/dissertation committee students can print their documents on regular white paper. For purposes of review and approval by the CGCE, students must submit an electronic copy in PDF format to Dr. Forouza Pourkay via address: For purposes of library archiving, students must provide an electronic replica, in portable document format (PDF) of the approved thesis/dissertation. The document may be submitted via to (see more about this in section 5). 6

Consistency with font size must be followed throughout the whole document. Margins The left margin must be 1.5 inches throughout the document. All other margins (top, bottom, and right) must be 1 inch. The only exception is the title page which has 1.75 inches at the top and bottom of the page. Headings and subheadings must have at least two full lines of body text below them. If only one line of text fits below a heading, move the heading to the next page. Pagination All page numbers (where it applies) must be placed at the bottom center of the page. All pages are counted but not necessarily numbered (see below). The following pages ARE counted BUT NOT numbered: title page, copyright page, and dedication page (if included).

List each appendix and its title separately in the Table of Contents. The pages are counted and numbered in Arabic numerals. 5. Library Submission Process Rowan University Library archives a copy of each thesis or dissertation, in one or more formats, as the official copy of record. Candidates to the Master s Degree and Doctoral Degree are to submit directly to the CGCE the final approved version of their work according to the following instructions. This is the penultimate step in completing the requirements for the degree. Submission requirements Once the Master s thesis or Doctoral Dissertation has been approved by the Chair of the Thesis / Dissertation Committee and the Dean of CGCE, the student will submit to the CGCE the following material: Thesis/Dissertation Submission Form, with all signatures (electronically, in PDF format) An electronic replica, in portable document format (PDF) of the approved thesis/ dissertation. The document may be submitted via as a PDF attachment. 12

13 An electronic replica in PDF format of the Thesis/ Dissertation Approval Form, with signatures. This form is to be included with the electronic version of the thesis or dissertation. Payment of $40 by check or money order to Rowan University/Campbell Library, for processing and archiving purposes. Upon receipt by the library of these materials, the submission form will be signed by the Dean of the Library and delivered to the Registrar s office, by the library. The Thesis/dissertation package will then be complete. NOTE: The Library is not responsible for examining or reviewing the submitted thesis/dissertation material. The Library will prepare and archive theses/dissertations as is. Bound paper copies Bound paper copies are often desired by the authors of theses and dissertations. The library will provide you with assistance in obtaining bound copies at a reasonable cost. For each bound copy requested submit to the library the complete text printed on white 24 pound, 100% cotton rag paper, acid-free and watermarked. This paper is available at the bookstore and at all office supply companies. For more details contact the library. Doctoral dissertation publishing with UMI Rowan no longer requires the submission of dissertations to UMI. Theses and Dissertations will be cataloged and placed in the Rowan Library ETD repository, currently in development. The publications in the Rowan ETD repository will be indexed by a number of web-based tools such as OAIster and Google so the text will be available to other researchers lending to the advancement of knowledge in the respective areas of study. Rowan authors may also submit dissertations to UMI Dissertation Publishing if desired. UMI, a division of ProQuest, has been the primary company for collecting and disseminating theses and dissertations in the USA. Prior to the development of electronic or digital repositories, UMI was one of a few companies offering this service. Dissertations submitted to UMI are included in the UMI database, which currently includes over 1.5 billion pages spanning 500 years. Rowan University Library subscribes to the UMI thesis and dissertation database. For more information about cost and the submission process link to or contact Rowan University Libraries or the College of Graduate and Continuing Education. 13

20 Abstract Janne Student AN EXPLORATORY INVESTIGATION OF THE LITERACY SKILLS OF STUDENTS WITH DOWN SYNDROME 2006/07 Joseph Professor, Ph.D. Master of Arts in Special Education The purposes of this exploratory investigation were to (a) ascertain the literacy performance of a group of students with mental retardation and Down syndrome in grades 1-12 (n = 105) and (b) determine the relative value of phonemic awareness for predicting reading and writing achievement for this population. Students demonstrated wide variability in their performance on literacy measures. The average word recognition for the group was Primer level; average reading comprehension was Pre- Primer level; and the average spelling level was the Primer level. Regression analyses revealed phonemic awareness significantly predicted performance on narrative word recognition, reading comprehension, words spelled correctly per student, and use of invented spellings per student. Implications for teaching students with mental retardation and Down syndrome to reading and writing are discussed. v 20
