The Committee to Examine the Methodology to Assess Research-Doctorate Programs was presented with the task of looking at the methodology used in the 1995 National Research Council (NRC) Study, Research-Doctorate Programs in the United States: Continuity and Change (referred to hereafter as the “1995 Study”). The Committee was asked to identify and comment on both its strengths and its weaknesses. Where weaknesses were found, it was asked to suggest methods to remedy them.

The Committee recommends that the NRC conduct a new assessment of research-doctorate programs.
