Important Information for Searching

For best results when searching the database for reviews of assessment tests:

  • Go to the box on the left called "Search Multiple Databases"
  • In the "Find Articles" search box type the name of the test
  • In the "Select Subject" box use drop down menu to select "Education"
  • Click search (the results will come up in another tab so you can still refer to the LibGuide for directions)
  • You can refine your list by adding "reviews" to the second search box

General searching tips:

  • Limit your results to "peer-review" (located on the left) to only get scholarly articles
  • You can also use the slider to select the date range for the results
  • clicking on the "subject terms" boxes will limit your search to only articles using those subject terms
  • You can re-do a search using subject terms found in an article to narrow or broaden the focus of your search
  • If you are having trouble locating any material, click "Subject Terms" at the top of the page, then type the term you want to use in the lower search box. This will bring you to a list of terms used in this database, or direct you to the term that they use for that concept
  • If the subject terms list still doesn't help, use an online thesaurus to find similar terms to use in a search.
