Student Perceptions of Factors Helping and Hindering Dissertation Progress.
The skills that are called on for dissertation and dissertation work are somewhat different from those that are used for regular course requirements. Whereas academic courses have clear beginnings and endings, the dissertation project is a somewhat open-ended task and the dissertation process is relatively unstructured.

This qualitative study focused on clinical psychology student perceptions of factors helping and hindering dissertation progress. (Author)
