Implementation of Assurance of Learning Plans: An Accounting Program and Individual Course Analysis
Christensen, Anne L.; Judd, Andrew J.; Nichols, Nancy B.
Journal of Education for Business, v86 n2 p84-91 2011
The authors surveyed faculty at AACSB-accredited schools regarding the learning goals and measures for their accounting programs as well as course objectives for the introductory tax course. They found over 50% of respondents were still developing their learning goals and measures and only 18% of respondents had completed 2 or more rounds of assessment. Whereas most accounting program goals are assessed with direct measures, accreditation program goals typically represent a small subset of the goals specified by professional bodies such as the AICPA. Assessment results have led to numerous changes in accounting programs and courses. (Contains 2 figures and 3 tables.)
