Question:

When using a library database(s), what three terms can we use to help narrow and broaden our search? (hint: these three terms are also known as Boolean Operators).

Cori S.
Answer:

The three Boolean Operators are the terms "AND," "OR," and "NOT." - AND will narrow your search and include all search terms. - OR will broaden your search by connecting synonyms. - NOT will narrow your search by excluding specific terms from your search results.

Education

Question:

Since we cannot measure the term "understand" in regard to learning objectives, what more specific, actionable, and measurable terms can we use instead? In other words, how will your students prove to you that they understand something?

Cori S.
Answer:

For example, if you want your students to understand how to use library resources and research as part of a project, you can use actionable and measurable terms such as "use," "apply," and "conduct." For example, a learning objective may be: "Use keywords and subject terms to apply to the library's databases and conduct research." There are also other variations.
