Summary

This study describes the problems of searching in professional journals for relevant articles on the subject of adult education evaluation. Seventy-three journals were identified as containing 337 appropriate articles when searching with 11 title words; 43 percent of the titles referred to human behavior change while 57 percent referred to program development. Title function words, "who,""what,""why,""where,""when," and "how," were tabulated. Methodology, practice, and issue words were examined, as were the words suggesting evaluative techniques and instruments. A microthesaurus suggesting method, technique, and instrument was prepared. Search strategies using function words and key title words were recommended to adult educators. Criteria for clearly titling journal articles were recommended to authors. (Author)
