During 2020-21 two business faculty from different institutions together with OER librarians, undergraduate students, and graduate assistants conspired to create a faculty-access-only testbank aligned to senior undergraduate-level open textbook, Strategic Management (2020) and AACSB Standards. Testbank development followed instructional and ethical practices for non-disposable assignments including faculty development of assignments, student ownership of student work, student “opt in” to go public, choice of no or some student attribution, financial incentives for various project participants, project MOUs, professional copyediting, and public release to vetted requestors. This presentation will describe our respective motivations, process, how we found one another, why the collaboration worked so well, and practices we believe are worth emulating. We plan to reserve a significant amount of time for discussion.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Conduct an informed discussion of why standards-aligned testbanks for OER are helpful
  • Describe one group's testbank development method or process
  • Articulate several "success conditions" for multi-institutional collaborations
  • Apply existing knowledge of institutional characteristics into practices which may be helpful for projecting project success, including project design, motivation, incentives, and administrative culture/support
