significant in all the partial correlations. Partial correlations between social studies scores and
hours open ranged from r =.13 to r = .28, p < .001. Partial correlations with total technology
ranged in value from r =.17 to r = .27, p < .001. Both collection size and budget were
significant in each partial correlation except the one controlling for average teacher salary.
Significant partial correlations with collection size ranged from r = .08 to r = .25, p < .001.
Significant partial correlations with budget ranged from r = .09 to r =.15, p < .001 (see Table
