Abstract

This is the final version of the 2016 Student Textbook and Course Materials Survey. in 2016, the Office of Distance Learning and Student Services within the statewide Florida Virtual Campus conducted a Student Textbook and Course Materials Survey with more than 22,000 students of Florida’s public colleges and universities. The purpose of the 2016 Student Course Materials Survey was to identify: (1) The amount of money that Florida students spent on textbooks during the spring 2016 semester. (2) The frequency with which students buy textbooks that are not used, (3) How students are affected by the cost of textbooks. (4) Which study aids students perceive to be the most beneficial to their learning. (5) Identify any changes over time in student responses from previous iterations of the survey.
