Summary and Discussion of Results for Research Question 5
Results to this question followed the established pattern. There was a statistically
significant but very weak effect at the elementary level; combined library elements accounted for
just 0.2% of the variance in English Language Arts CST scores when community and school
factors were controlled for in a hierarchical regression. At the middle school level, the library
factor accounted for 2% of the variance in English Language Arts CST scores and 3% of the
variance in social studies CST scores. At the high school level, the library factor accounted for
19% of the variance in English Language Arts CST scores and 21% of the variance in U.S.
