Abstract

This article reports on the development and use of an inclusive process to select a departmental textbook for general psychology. It describes a method for developing department-specific instruments to narrow the available textbook choices and an in-class textbook trial used in the final selection. Reported advantages of this method include “buy-in” by faculty, student evaluation of the books and ancillary materials, and classroom testing. We also provide several recommendations to assist other departments in employing our rubric. © 2006, Society for the Teaching of Psychology. All rights reserved.
