When using a glass baking dish instead of a metal one what should oven temp. be set at?

I only have one large metal baking dish and when it's in use, I have to resort to using glass ones. But I don't know how much to reduce the oven temperature by. Can anyone help me out?

Usually, decrease temperature by 25F.
If recipe calls for the oven to be 350, and you are using a glass dish, put the oven on 325F

A baking pan refers to a metal pan, and a baking dish refers to an oven-safe glass or ceramic container. (If substituting glass or ceramic cookware for recipes that call for baking pans, reduce baking temperature by about 25 degrees F.)

Generally, start by decreasing the oven temperature by about 25 degrees. The first time, watch it carefully, to make sure things don't burn. 25 degrees isn't enough for some ovens.
