INTRODUCTION Textbooks in higher education are used by instructors in varying ways. Some instructors use the text as a supplement to other course material while other instructors use the text as the primary source of course material. In either case, the textbook is a critical element in higher education instruction. Stein, Stuen, Carnine, and Long (2001) noted that textbooks are believed to provide 75 to 90 percent of classroom instruction. This central role of textbooks in the instructional process is normally an impetus for college professors to spend a considerably amount of time selecting the appropriate text for their classes.
