Request for a survey by Sviesa
Our Lithuanian members have asked me to conduct a survey on the use and life cycle of textbooks in the member countries.
I will do this via survey monkey in the first week of December. However, if you can think of any questions that you would like to add or aspects that interest you, please get in touch so that we can make this survey a really useful tool for everybody. Here are the proposed questions:
Questionnaire about textbook lifecycle in EEPG member countries
1.) How long is the average life span of an individual printed copy?
2.) What is the average life span of an edition (how many years is a book used before it is revised)?
3.) Is the life span different depending on the subject?
If so, please grade from least often revised to most often revised for the main subjects.
4.) What type of textbook approval system is applied in your country? (This was already answered by most of you in my last "urgent request")
a) state approval
b) only one book per subject per grade
how many textbooks are roughly available in the main subjects?
5.) In which subjects and grades (primary, lower sec, upper sec) are electronic textbooks used?
(not supplementary but as the main medium)
How many electronic textbooks are available in the market? Please specify subject and grade.
(main subjects only)
7.) How many textbooks in total do students use every year? Please specify grade.
8.) Are supplementary materials used in the classroom?
If so, do parents pay for them and what is the average cost of supplementary materials per year
per students in
