Assessment of Student Memo Assignments in Management Science
Williams, Julie Ann Stuart; Stanny, Claudia J.; Reid, Randall C.; Hill, Christopher J.; Rosa, Katie Martin
Journal of Education for Business, v90 n1 p24-30 2015
Frequently in Management Science courses, instructors focus primarily on teaching students the mathematics of linear programming models. However, the ability to discuss mathematical expressions in business terms is an important professional skill. The authors present an analysis of student abilities to discuss management science concepts through memo homework assignments. The findings indicate that average student grades on homework problems for linear programming formulations were always higher than average student grades on homework memos in which they write about their formulations. These results suggest that teaching managerial writing about analytical work is an important area for future business education research.
