Self-Quiz and Study
Self Quiz and Study (SQS) connects each student to the learning resources needed for success in the course. For each chapter, students take a practice test to initiate the Self Quiz and Study, immediately upon completing the practice test see how their performance compares to chapter learning objectives within chapters, and then receive a Study Plan that recommends specific readings from the text, supplemental study material, and practice work that will improve their understanding and mastery of each learning objective.
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.
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.
Connect Accounting’s Reporting feature allows instructors to review students’ performance against criteria such as AACSB standards and chapter learning objectives.
