The authors studied student attitudes toward online homework in community college second year accounting classes. Overall, students indicated that online homework was preferable to traditional paper based homework. In addition, students reported that online homework increased their understanding of the subject and that doing online homework assignments resulted in an increase in the amount of time devoted to doing homework. In addition to analyzing these results, we compare and contrast to other recent findings in the literature of web based homework. This paper should be of interest to any educators who are currently using or considering adding online homework to their course.

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.
