There is a growing pressure from the change commission, AACSB (American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business), etc. to have some type of computer application in principles. The reasons are that (1) this may be the only exposure some students have to a computer, particularly true to those leaving school after their sophomore year and (2) for accounting majors to be, this will be one of the general courses where they will, hopefully, be using the computer.

This paper presents the results of a review of computerized practice sets at an AACSB -accredited university. The author hopes that the insights gathered in this review will help others in computerizing the first course in accounting.

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.
