There is no prepared content in this unit. It is a research unit in which students, in consultation with an appointed supervisor, carry out research tasks to develop new knowledge (content) themselves. From time to time, supervisors will provide students with appropriate readings to support their research. Supervisors are appointed by the Masters research paper coordinator in consultation with the student and the Chair of EXR791 Education Research Proposal.


Assessment for the overall Minor Thesis comprising both EXR798 and EXR799 is a report of approximately 20000 words (100%), applicable at completion of EXR799 Minor Thesis Part B. 

Minor thesis will normally be assessed by two examiners. These examiners will normally be appointed from amongst School of Education academic staff, excluding the supervisor. The relevant Masters minor thesis coordinator will appoint the examiners upon advice from the supervisor.

Through the supervisor, students may request that a particular examiner not be appointed, to ensure that an appropriate examiner is available.
