For some time there has been an awareness that some students find the transition from introductory accounting to higher level studies in accounting quite challenging. A causal factor being a lack of understanding of the basic accounting cycle, a threshold concept in accounting.
Come along the Education Futures Scholarship Program Grant Funding + the opportunity to develop an innovative adaptive learning resource that will strengthen student understanding of and competency in the accounting cycle.
The online adaptive learning tool will require students to process appropriate and skill-developing journal entries for a fictitious business, tracking their performance as they go and generating a model of each student’s knowledge. What if a student struggle with a particular concept or the processing of an accounting transaction? The online instructional session will be customised to address the needs and abilities of each student.
