Brad Bailey, Tom Cooper

With the increasing costs of printed textbooks along with the increasing availability of open-educational resources (OER), faculty may be tempted to consider adopting open-access materials. But how do our students feel about these options? Does the format of the text influence how and how often the students use their textbooks? Are students using free or online texts just as satisfied with the quality of these resources as other students? The speakers administered an electronic survey to students in four introductory classes that included a range of questions including items that addressed the above research questions. In this presentation, the speakers will reveal and discuss the results of this survey.
