Survey of Textbook Adoption Policies and Practices in First-Year Writing Programs


Eliot Rendleman


While making textbook adoption decisions, many WPAs and textbook committees of  first-year composition want to know what policies and practices comparable institutions follow. This survey intends to collect general data on this topic across the nation and across institution types. This is an ongoing survey where participants can revise their responses as their programs, policies, and practices change. The textbook adoption survey takes an average of 2 minutes  to complete. Please complete only one survey per institution. The survey is for WPAs who currently direct a first-year composition program, but representatives for WPAs are welcome.
