Do you need to find a test with internal validity and reliability? Use these two databases to search on your subject (like hand strength) and then see journal articles and more written about the reliability and validity of such tests. Find the full text of the articles in another database like PubMed, Academic Search, or at TWU Libraries E-Journals (on the Research page), and you have all the great full text you need to succeed!
First, consult your syllabus and Blackboard documents to see how your faculty define, describe and delineate what this paper needs to be.
Second, consult several reference sources to learn what the term concept analysis and your subject mean.
Third, search in the CINAHL database (seen on this page), search for the CINAHL subject heading Concept Analysis, find those articles and search for your subject term separately.
Finally, combine the two sets of articles found and refine to the last (5?) years, English language and (?) full text articles to find the articles that discuss your needs, according to your faculty's guidelines.
You are ready to write about these articles for a great concept analysis paper. Remember to use APA Publication Manual 6th edition (and its update) correctly.
Enter PubMed Remote Database with your Pioneer Portal then click MeSH Database. Enter a term (obesity) and click Search. Review the offered terms and click the check box to the left of the preferred term (obesity) and on the right, click Add to search builder. In the "Search MeSH" box atop the screen, click the gray x and type in your next term (epidemics). Click the check box next to epidemics, click Add to search builder then click Search PubMed to get articles that combine both concepts on a "Results" screen.
At the "Results" screen, click Summary in the left corner and then click the buttons for Abstract, items per page, and then Sort by Most Recent, for example, to show available abstracts and hyperlinks to full text access.
