Abstract

Excellence as an evaluative category is implicit in the attainment of “doctorateness,” so how can excellence be evaluated? The practices of dance, now recognized as legitimate components of doctoral studies, complicate evaluation processes while suggesting possible revisions as to how these processes may be refined. The combination of tacit knowledge and engagement, though contrary in logical senses, may provide a dynamic solution for evaluating studies that exceed a concept of excellence constrained measurement.
