There are a few ways to approach an article search for your topic. Here are some suggestions:

  • Look for studies specifically about how Khan Academy affects math achievement
  • Look for studies about how technology affects math achievement
  • Look for studies about how differentiation affects math achievement
  • Look for studies about how immediate and formative feedback affect math achievement

The most useful articles will be those that are most specific to your topic, but others that address only one particular aspect of your topic can be used as well. Your are looking for articles that inform your topic, they don't have to be an exact match for your project.

I would recommend searching in each of these 3 search tools:

  • LearnTechLib
  • ERIC
  • Search@CULibraries

All three can be found on this page: http://libguides.cu-portland.edu/medonline/primary/where

There are many different keyword combinations that will work. Here are a few example searches:
