A reorganized and improved ERIC database is scheduled to open in September 2004. The following description is based on the old site and may not match the new site. During the transition period, go to http://www.eric.ed.gov to search the ERIC database.
This project is designed to further your experience in finding research papers on the Internet. Once you find them, you should be able to identify certain experimental characteristics of the papers. A place to start is ERIC (Educational Research Information Clearinghouse) for descriptions of research papers.
To complete this project, access the ERIC site at http://www.ericfacility.net/teams/Login.do?action=7&userName=guest.
