Guided Examples provide narrated and animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises. This allows students to identify, review or reinforce the concepts and activities covered in class. Guided Examples provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance.
Algorithmic capability within Connect Accounting provides instructors with the ability to assign unique data for each exercise and each attempt, providing an infinite number of assignments with solutions. Consequently, students can work the same problem structure with different number sets until they master the task. The immediate scoring and feedback options in Connect Accounting help guide and optimize student learning.
Self-Quiz and Study
Connect’s Self-Quiz and Study takes students through a practice test, then recommends readings, study tools, and additional practice.
Applying Excel problems provide students with an opportunity to build their own Excel worksheets and formulas by recreating examples provided in the text, so that they are developing Excel skills in the context of managerial accounting. Students are then asked a series of “what if” questions in which they analyze how and why the related pieces of accounting data affect each other. This feature is integrated into Connect Accounting with algorithmic variables; the Excel spreadsheet can be uploaded by the student and graded by the instructor manually, while the questions that test the validity of their worksheets and the what-if questions are graded automatically.
When learning tools are interactive, content is more approachable and engagement is deeper. Connect includes an Integrated eBook that builds student comprehension through animation, audio and video. As part of its rich media format, students can insert and review notes, highlight text, conduct searches for specific content and interact with high-impact images.
End of Chapter and Testbank Content
Connect includes direct textbook End-of-Chapter problem material, select Algorithmic problem material, and Test Bank questions. Assign students online homework, test and quiz questions with multiple problem types, algorithmic variation, and randomized question order. This fully integrated solution helps students master the concepts, practice problems and ultimately achieve success.
Connect Reporting feature allows instructors to review students’ performance against criteria such as AACSB standards, difficulty, specific assignments and chapter learning objectives to help you identify specific areas of struggle.
