Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Statistical analysis was used to document and observe the effects of fixed and flexible schedules on circulation and attendance at Howe Elementary School in Des Moines, Iowa. This study compared circulation and attendance records of third through fifth graders from the school years 1992-93 and 1993-94 using fixed schedules to those from 1994-95 and 1995-96 using flexible schedules. Decreased circulation and attendance followed a shift in schedules, with the conclusion that both circulation and attendance were higher when following a more traditional, fixed schedule.
