This feature to the ERIC Clearinghouse on Assessment and Evaluation (ERIC/AE) (reviewed in the September 3, 1999 Scout Report
) allows users to bypass the traditional six-to-nine-month wait for abstracts appearing in ERIC's Resources in Education
or the Current Index to Journals in Education.
Updated once a week, the database contains very current abstracts of papers on "assessment, evaluation, research methods and learning theory and the educationally relevant articles appearing in over thirty professional journals." Users may search the database by keyword with several modifiers or browse one of a number of "Pre-packaged strategies" (Format, Audience, Publication Type, Topics), which group related abstracts together. Some search hints are provided.
