Project Analysis and Report The purpose of this phase is for each team to complete the project and produce a substantive team project report, and for each student to complete a comprehensive individual analysis report. These reports must be completed and approved by the advisor and one faculty reader before a student may participate in the oral examination and graduation. Timeline The timeline on the following page illustrates the process that would be followed to complete the Ed.D. degree in three-years. In order for a student to complete the program in three years, as shown on the timeline, he or she must meet all milestones at the times indicated on the timeline. Many students need to take more time to meet the milestones. Extending the milestones will extend the length of the program. For example, completing the management plan at the end of the second year will extend the program because of the time it will take to implement and complete the project. Students graduate when they complete all the requirements of the program and satisfy the graduate school review of those requirements.
