Abstract

This presentation tracks library instruction impact on undergraduate English students by using anonymized student information, including grades and semester GPAs, to find a correlation between library instruction classes and student success. This was a four year study of English Writing II students who participated in library instruction classes. All of these students card swiped at the beginning of their instruction classes giving us the student information we needed to analyze their semester GPAs. We compared the student's GPAs who attend a library instruction class to other students who did not attend a library instruction class. After gathering and analyzing the information we found a positive correlation with library instruction and student success.
