Investment Portfolio Simulation: An Assessment Task in Finance
Parle, Gabrielle; Laing, Gregory K.
e-Journal of Business Education and Scholarship of Teaching, v11 n1 p118-126 2017
The use of an investment portfolio simulation as an assessment task is intended to reinforce learning by involving students in practical application of theoretical principles in a real-time actual financial market. Simulation as a teaching pedagogy promotes individual involvement and provides students with a deeper understanding of the issues, and skills involved. The simulation is designed to engage students in learn by actually applying theory to actual events occurring on the Australian Stock Exchange.
