Q. the development of national standards that support or refute schools or districts
Thanks for contacting the Online Library. To find peer reviewed Education related journals, you will need to click the Find Articles button on the library's homepage. From the list that follows, you have several different databases you can use: ProQuest Central, Education Journals, ERIC, or Research Library.
I would suggest starting with Education Journals. In the database, you will have an option to select Full text (so that you can read the entirety of the articles immediately) and Peer reviewed. Select both. Then, you will need to use keyword searches on your topic area to find resources. Use an AND to combine terms. When you have a specific phrase such as national standards, use quotes around it. Remember to also use synonyms to help you find more results. I have included one search that you might try in the picture below.
Please let us know if you have any further questions!
