A multi-institutional study of the impact of open textbook adoption on the learning outcomes of postsecondary students
Rating

Abstract In some educational settings, the cost of textbooks approaches or even
exceeds the cost of tuition. Given limited resources, it is important to better
understand the impacts of free open educational resources (OER) on student outcomes. Utilizing digital resources such as OER can substantially reduce costs for
students. The purpose of this study was to analyze whether the adoption of no-cost
open digital textbooks significantly predicted students’ completion of courses, class
achievement, and enrollment intensity during and after semesters in which OER
were used. This study utilized a quantitative quasi-experimental design with
propensity-score matched groups to examine differences in outcomes between
students that used OER and those who did not. The demographics of the initial
sample of 16,727 included 4909 students in the treatment condition with a pool of
11,818 in the control condition. There were statistically significant differences
between groups, with most favoring students utilizing OER
