You are being invited to take part in a research study conducted KSU Bookstore. Before you decide to participate in this study, you should read this form and ask questions about anything that you do not understand.

Description of Project
The purpose of the study is to evaluate faculty attitudes and behaviors toward course material adoptions, formats, and usage.

Explanation of Procedures
Participants will be asked to take an online survey.

Time Required
The survey will take 15-20 minutes.

Risks or Discomforts
There are no known risks or anticipated causes of discomfort resulting from this survey.

Information gained from this survey will help the bookstore increase efficiency and effectiveness of our process and the course materials offered to students. Through process improvement our ultimate goal is to make the process better for KSU faculty and lower course material costs to students.

Compensation (if applicable)
There is no compensation for participation in this study. However, one faculty member will receive a $100 gift card in a drawing. The winner will be drawn randomly, and only from those faculty members who voluntarily give an email address. Note: The email address is only collected for this purpose.

The results of this participation will be anonymous.
Personal information is not collected during the survey. An email address can be given voluntarily but it is not required. At no time will individual faculty information be distributed. Data from the survey will be shown in aggregate or by faculty segment (i.e. adjunct faculty, teaching more than 20 years, etc.)
