OER did not lead to significant improvement in student performance

Type: Evidence | Hypothesis: Student impact | Polarity: | Sector: | Country:

In an interview with OCW consortium, Prof. Donna Gaudet of the mathematics department at Scottsdale Community College (AZ) cautions against thinking that all use of OER improves student satisfaction – although she does note that student satisfaction is unlikely to suffer.

Academics are always interested in improving student’s outcomes, but we should be careful about getting too excited when there are some small changes in student results. There are many other positive reasons for using OER, not the least saving money for students. I’m happy to say that our outcomes are at the very least the same as they were before OER was adopted.
