My belief is that the only way to learn accounting is to do it. Practical application of accounting procedures and concepts using exercises, problems, quizzes and examinations enhances the student’s understanding and retention of the accounting principles / concepts taught during this semester.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes

Eighteen multiple-choice questions will be based upon a distribution of
critical thinking concepts applied to a learning outcome. Two questions will

Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
The methodology that will be followed during class sessions will include a review of the previous class’s new material, lecture on the accounting concepts assigned supported by exercise and problems that allow an analysis of these concepts in a practical situation.
Homework problems and/or exercises to be turned in for grading will be assigned by the instructor. These problems, as well as other questions, exercises or problems, will be reviewed in class. To enhance your learning, you should attempt to do the problems before they are discussed in class. During class discussions, you will then be able to clear up questions you have concerning the solution.
Classroom participation, completion of assigned homework and attendance are mandatory requirements to you mastery of the accounting concepts presented and are a major portion of your final grade.
Homework and take-home problems are intended to encourage student discussion and interaction and provide a means for group learning using complicated accounting concepts to solve accounting problems. These group discussions are encouraged, as they enhance the learning process. However, students are expected to do their own work. Copying, duplicating, using or plagiarizing another’s work is prohibited and will result in a failing grade on the assignment and a possible “F” for the course.
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business and Management courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business and Management.
Students are expected to attend all scheduled class meetings and be present for the full class period. Absenteeism and tardiness, regardless of the cause, threaten academic achievement. Classes missed for legitimate reasons as discussed in the Attendance Policy are excusable; however, the student who is absent from the class is responsible for all material covered during the class. If an absence is not specifically excused by the instructor before the class, homework assignments, quizzes or other assignments cannot be made up for grading.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Each student brings to the class a wealth of knowledge and experience. The classroom atmosphere must encourage students to share knowledge and experience with fellow students. Any conduct that does not support that atmosphere will not be tolerated. Common courtesy, respect for different opinions and orderly discussions will be enforced by the instructor.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.
