For this assignment you'll need to find at least 5 recent articles. The following boxes will help you search the Walden Library for relevant articles.
Watch the quick video below for an overview of education research databases in the Library.
Not sure where to start?
Our Education Research Starters provide overviews of topics, and may help you decide on your own research topic.
Below are some examples:
Library databases aren't like Google: they are very literal. You must search for the exact keywords authors have used.
Combine keywords using Boolean Operators (AND and OR), and use the asterisk * to find all word forms.
|tutoring AND achievement||Finds articles that use BOTH keywords|
|junior high OR middle school||Finds articles that use EITHER of the similar keywords|
|plagiar* (shift+8)||Finds all endings of the word: plagiarize, plagiarism, etc.|
Look for search limits on the Advanced Search page in the database.
Scholarly and Peer Reviewed Limit:
Note: everything in the SAGE database is peer reviewed, so you will not see a limit.
