Achievement Educators use this data at the beginning of the school year to determine the entry level of performance and instructional effectiveness. Demographic Educators use this data to determine the subset of students and their grades or determine outside factors that affect student performance. Program Educators collect this data to identify what instructional effectiveness of the strategies that were implemented. Perception Educators may collect this data from students to determine how the students feel about their school.
Think-Pair-Share How can school library media coordinators access data? As a school library media coordinator, what data can you access via your library automation system? Once you have the data, what can you do with it to inform your practice?
Everything is Connected: Review of the Pilot Rubric Rubric

Research to Know and Promote NC Study NC Study : School library programs in North Carolina elementary, middle school, and high schools have a significant impact on student achievement – as measured by scores on standardized reading and English tests. Scores on standardized reading and English tests in the schools included in this study tended to increase when libraries in the schools: Were staffed more hours during the school week Were open more hours during the school week Had newer books Spent more money per 100 students on books and other print materials like magazines and newspapers Spent more money per 100 students on electronic access to information (e.g., online database searching, Internet access) Were more likely to subscribe to online periodical services Were more likely to subscribe to CD ROM services These findings are consistent with those of earlier studies in Alaska, Iowa, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Texas, all of which found similar links between student achievement and the quality of school library programs (Burgin).
Research to Know and Promote Change in School Librarian Staffing Linked with Change in CSAP Reading Performance, 2005 to 2011 Schools that either maintained or gained an endorsed librarian between 2005 and 2011 tended to have more students scoring advanced in reading in 2011 and to have increased their performance more than schools that either lost their librarians or never had one (Lance). Notably, schools with the largest percentage of higher advanced reading scores in 2011 and higher increases in advanced reading scores between 2005 and 2011 (49%) were those that gained an endorsed librarian during that interval (Lance). These findings were also discussed in a recent Teacher Librarian article.Teacher Librarian
