      The same search can also be executed by typing: "Letter Grades" AND performance in the main search box.

    4. In the Limit your results  segment of the page set the Publication Date range to find documents published within the last 10 years. You can also limit your results by educational level, audience, and document type.

  • Click on the icon to access full-text of the article.

    Tip: If you have a choice to use a PDF or an html version of an article choose the PDF for accurate page numbers!

  • If a full-text version of your article is not available, click on the Full-Text Finder icon to search for your article in other linked databases.

  • If there is no online access, don't forget to double-check Periodicals by Title to see if the Library has a print subscription.

    If the library does not have access to an article in any form, copy the citation information into the online Interlibrary Loan form.

  • If you make an EBSCO account, you can make folders and organize your research. Place articles in folders by clicking the icon and following the prompts!

  • If you are looking for additional material that the EKS does not possess, feel free to check to identify material for ILL.
