Abstract

Is first year accounting too difficult for students? Many students have this belief but are required to complete the subject, a compulsory component of their business degree. Lecturers responding quickly to student difficulties can overcome this belief. A number of activities, including quizzes, online practice sets and Harvard one-minute papers, are used in this action research project to provide a mixture of reflection, feedback and revision for students. Students who participated in these activities achieved a significantly (p<.001) higher overall mark in the subject than those who did not participate. This research addresses the need within the accounting education literature for evidence of the impact of reflection, feedback and revision on learning in Australian first year accounting classes.
