Idaho School Library Impact Study – 2009

Via Scoop.itStudent Learning through School Libraries

This commissioned report identifies how Idaho school libraries contribute to student success. The survey design included both qualitative and quantitative measures. Responses from 1,082 librarians, teachers, and principals indicated what library services and programs they valued. In addition the survey asked to what degree administrators believed their staff were teaching Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) skills. The authors then looked at how those perceptions related to student achievement based upon ISAT scores. The bottom line result is that students are more likely to succeed/ excel/ thrive when librarians play active and collaborative roles with other teachers and with administrators.
