Grade 8 English Language Arts
Factor analysis with varimax rotation was again performed for the library, school and
community. Again, only factor loadings greater than .600 were considered for inclusion in
groupings, and only groupings with an eigenvalue of at least 1 were retained. For library
program elements, all variables loaded on a single factor accounting for 57.66% of the variance.
Budget loaded at .54 and was dropped. A second factor analysis accounted for 64.68% of the
variance with factor loadings indicated in Table 52.
