Computer-Based Instruction in Accounting Using the CREATE System.
Henkle, Edward B.; Robertson, Kenneth W.
The Graduate Logistics program of the United States Air Force (USAF) Institute of Technology has required that prospective students show a satisfactory level of competence in basic accounting procedures before entering the program. The purpose of this thesis was to develop accounting case problems for use with the CREATE computer system that would provide the students the opportunity to review and practice accounting techniques. Though the problems were militarily oriented, they did incorporate generally accepted accounting principles. A concepts pretest and five case problems were developed and received limited testing. It was concluded that the problems devised were often too lengthy and cumbersone for the CREATE system and that further refinements should be made. In addition, several internal USAF accounting procedures were examined; it was recommended that these be reviewed along more realistic lines, specifically those pertaining to non-appropriated funds.
