At the fourth grade level, there were significant positive correlations between English
Language Arts CST scores and fourteen library staff services. The two strongest associations
were with choice B, "Informally instructed students in the use of resources," at r =.16 (p < .001)
and choice T, "Communicated proactively with principal" at r =.15, p < .001. Total services
correlated with the English Language Arts CST scores at r =.14, p < .001. Table 34 lists all
results. Of the fourteen with significant correlations, seven remained significant in partial
correlations with all school and community variables used as controls:
* Offered a program of curriculum-integrated information literacy instruction
* Informally instructed students in the use of resources
* Provided teachers with information about new resources
* Provided reference assistance to students and teachers
* Helped students and teachers find and use resources outside school library
* Helped parents realize importance of lifelong learning
* Communicated proactively with principal
In addition, total services remained significant in partial correlations controlling for each of the
school and community variables, as shown in Table 35.
