Student Attitude towards and Use of Powerpoint[R] Slides as Study Guides in Undergraduate Introductory Financial Accounting
Kozub, Robert M.
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v7 n3 p39-48 Mar 2010
This study examines undergraduate business students' attitude towards and use of Powerpoint[R] slides provided as a supplement to class attendance, textbook reading, and other traditional course resources. A survey of students with six majors (accounting, finance, marketing, management, international business and management information systems) enrolled in the undergraduate introductory financial accounting class in which the instructor provided Powerpoint[R] slides in addition to traditional course lectures and materials for student use. The students' learning strategies, as self reported in a questionnaire, (Table 7) were compared against class attendance, test performance, and overall course performance. Consistent with several prior studies, this study found little relationship between use of these resources and grades on exams or overall course grades. Further, this study found that students do not view these supplemental on-line resources as a substitute for class attendance. (Contains 7 tables and 1 figure.)
