Introductory Accounting is one of the foundation courses in most business curricula. While some students do very well with the content, there are significant numbers who do not successfully complete the course or receive a minimal passing grade. In an effort to improve student success and increase retention, midterm and final study workshops were implemented. The implementation and assessment of the accounting workshops are discussed in this paper.

This article is from the Accounting Instructors’ Report, an electronic journal that provides teaching tips and insights to those who teach accounting and other business courses.
