Cuttler, Carrie – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2019
The bulk of previous research on students' perceptions of open educational resources have lacked a control group of students rating traditional textbooks.

There is a growing trend for students to create and share self-assessment questions in their subject, as advocated by the contributing-student pedagogy (CSP). For subjects with large enrolments, this process can…
