Dialog and ERIC

Using DIALOG and the database ERIC, I conducted a basic building block search using the terms "reading achievement", "student evaluation", and " student motivation". This was done to research how libraries in public schools can help increase student literacy. These gave me a return of only 6 hits which included one on NCLB.

The first hit is seen below:
