 The purpose of this study is to analyze whether the adoption of no-cost open digital textbooks significantly predicts students’ completion of courses, achievement, and enrollment intensity during and after semesters in which OER were used. This study utilizes a quantitative quasi-experimental design with propensity score matched groups to examine differences in outcomes between students that used OER and those that did not. The demographics of the initial sample of 16,727 included 4,909 students in the treatment condition with a pool of 11,818 in the control condition. There were statistically significant differences between groups, all favoring students utilizing OER.

I began researching issues related to OER in 2008. I'm passionate about increasing OER research - especially research related to efficacy and student perceptions. See http://openedgroup.org/review.

I've spent the last 18 years creating, clarifying, elaborating, and evangelizing the core ideas of open education to individuals, faculty, institutions, and governments. I've also worked to place a solid foundation of empirical research beneath these core ideas. Now, with my colleagues at Lumen Learning we're trying to change open education from a niche curiosity to a mainstream, unstoppable force for improving the quality and lowering the cost of education., Lumen Learning
