Will They Use What You Taught Them? Course-Embedded Assessment of Accounting Students' Information Technology Self-Efficacy
Moore, John W.; Mitchem, Cheryl E.
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v1 n12 p13-22 Dec 2004
This paper provides a model of course-embedded assessment for use in an undergraduate Accounting Information Systems course, and reports the results obtained from implementation. The profession's educational objectives are mapped to specific computer skills and assignments, to provide direct evidence of learning outcomes. Indirect evidence of learning is provided by data collected with computer self-efficacy instrumentation. The paper addresses an important issue for persons entering the profession, in that they may have learned to use specific computer applications, but may lack the confidence in their own ability to use these skills. This may impact their ability to gain employment, or to maintain employment in accounting. The data collected may be employed to assess how well an AIS course supports the mission of its school, by demonstrating the acquisition of IT skills and the necessary self-efficacy to use those skills.
