The Effectiveness of Daily Assessments: A Preliminary Study in Principles of Financial Accounting
Bush, H. Francis; Walsh, Vonda K.
American Journal of Business Education, v7 n3 p237-244 2014
Today colleges and universities are working with students who are younger than the Internet. They were born at the end of the last century, and are referred to as millennials or the Net Generation. Their learning style and time management preferences may respond better to continuous tasks and constant feedback. This paper examines the statistical effects of requiring students to take an assessment as part of their grade in "Principles of Financial Accounting"; specifically, this paper attempts to identify the effects on both student performance and student satisfaction during the semester and at the end of their college career. The increase in students' performances is translated into cost savings for the institution.
