I've been browsing this site for weeks and have decided to apply for the Ed.D. program at Taft Uni. I really enjoy being a student and that is my main reason for returning to school, so I don't mind that it's not RA. Anyways, can anyone give me info regarding the Qualifying Exam that is taken after the first three courses? What sort of a test is this? Essay? Combination of MC/short answer/essay? I know this needs to be proctored, but I'm curious as to what I might actually encounter on the test when the time comes.
