Accountancy Higher Education Programs Inside the United States

Bob Jensen at rjensen@trinity.edu

I am grateful to the publishing firm Richard D. Irwin, Inc. (Irwin) for funding this survey. Irwin did not constrain what we asked for in the survey. Nor did Irwin constrain any reporting of the results to the general public. All errors in reporting these results are our own. Chapter 4 only contains part of the material in the questionnaire. Remaining portions of the responses will be included in other chapters and appendices of this book.

Any college accountancy education programs that want their own data added to this document should contact Professor Robert E. Jensen at Trinity University by email at rjensen@trinity.edu or by fax at 210-736-8134.

Subject: new website/fipse/prin. of acctg.
From Curt DeBerg
Comments: Accounting Education using Computers and Multimedia

Dear Colleagues: As a result of two grants from the U.S. Department of Education's Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), the accounting department at California State University, Chico completely reengineered its two introductory undergraduate accounting courses and disseminated the model to six other colleges and universities across the U.S. The purpose of the email is to invite you to visit our new web page entitled "Curricular Revision Starting at Ground Zero: The Case of Introductory Accounting." The address is:http://www.csuchico.edu/acms/fipse.

This CSU, Chico website explains the process of curricular revision in these two foundation business courses, and describes the motivation for change, obstacles faced, resources obtained and put in place, structure of new courses, linkage of the resulting product to the institutional mission, outcomes assessment, and reaction of stakeholders. The site concludes with recommendations and advice to other institutions and faculty who are considering program and curriculum revision. The website is organized according to the following links. Note that several documents (e.g., syllabi, sample cases and solutions, assessment results) easily can be downloaded to your hard drive). I welcome feedback from each of you.

Thank you.

Custom Software Development and Use:

None

Comments: Student reaction to commercial electronic aids has been mixed. The G/L software has been popular once the students get used to it, which is less time-consuming than doing ledgers manually. Students are impressed with the graphics in the Smith and Birney tutorial, but the packages run too slow. Moreover, there were problems with program installation, and many students received faculty data disks from the publisher. The computer-assisted practice set was helpful. However, the material wasn't interesting enough, and the program required rigid entry rules.

and also covers SAP doing the install and tuning of the system) and we already have over-committed faculty to training days - We will be upgrading to the max level of support and training in the near future - About the hardware - It is

unwise to scrimp on the hardware configuration - you will not win! - Be sure to budget in the neighborhood of $30,000 - $40,000 for the initial box and plan on moving up from there - CSU Chico for example has gotten hardware grants in the neighborhood of $400,000 and Texas is in the same ballpark -

My advise is to think before you jump and plan for a MAJOR committment - Skip

Comments: Student reaction to commercial electronic aids has been very favorable. Research has been conducted by faculty members to determine the impact of these aids and is published in various proceedings. Student reaction to locally-produced modules has been very favorable, also. Research on the impact of locally-produced modules has also been conducted and is published in various proceedings and several educational journals. In answer to whether our institution will increase rewards for this development, unfortunately, no! However, what counts are the presentations and publications.

Comments: Student reaction to commercial electronic aids has been that they like to have more hands-on electronic aids because they can practice it at their own paces. We have begun to collect qualitative data on how students adapt to the new learning tools. Student reaction to the locally-produced module has been that they like it very much because it enhances their further thinking on some class discussion topics. Research by faculty members has not been done to determine the impact of the locally-produced module, but we will do it as soon as there are reactions from students. Academic affairs will reward professors who actually create electronic modules. It is an adventure and most of the time very rewarding.

Comments: Student reaction to commercial electronic aids in auditing has been very positive. Faculty members have conducted research to determine the impact of these aids on students. Student reaction to locally-produced modules is unknown for the Biagioni material and apparently positive for the Stern material. No research has been conducted on the Biagioni material; research is just being conducted on the Stern material to determine the impact of these aids on students. In answer to whether our institution will increase rewards for the development of these aids, research is the driving force.

Like anything else, the success of these methods and students reactions to them depend crucially on the Professor's interest in, and commitment to, technology as a learning tool.

We've learned to major lessons: (1) there is a significant cost to students when technology is used, so there better be a clear and well defined benefit, and (2) technology changes the balance of power in the classroom - one needs to anticipate this and plan for it.



Email Message Update From Amy Dunbar January 31, 1998

"It is really so simple that a professor can do it in only twice the time it will take a child to do it." Thanks for the smile, Bob.

By the way, Iowa has adopted WebCT. I started using it last fall, and I am slowly but surely becoming more adept. The best thing from my perspective is the ability to post student grades on the Web (password protected). In addition, I have put out sample questions for my students. If you want to check out my site (it needs lots of work), use the following: login sugrue (case sensitive) password hawkeye The address is http://www.biz.uiowa.edu/class/6A141/ When you are on my home page you will see a button for WebCT. I am working off two servers: one at the university level (houses WebCT) and one at the college level. You will be on the COB server initially, but you could go directly to the university-level server.

I am constantly amazed how easy it is to link back and forth. Technology is AWESOME! Amy Dunbar (mailto:amy-dunbar@uiowa.edu ) 319/335-0941 Department of Accounting Pappajohn Business Administration Building University of Iowa Iowa City, Iowa 52242-1000

Comments: Student reaction to commercial electronic aids has been very positive. There has been very limited research done by faculty members in Advanced Accounting to determine the impact of these aids on students. Student reaction to locally-produced modules has been very positive. Again, there has been limited research done on these aids by faculty members in Advanced Accounting. In answer to the question of whether our institution will increase rewards for developing these aids, yes. Our university is providing technology grants for faculty utilizing multimedia.

Hi Bob,

I'm a novice at this Distance Learning (and don't actually start teaching until next month), so I may not have all the terms straight, but here is what we do. It is interactive on the web. We use a combination of bulletin boards, chat rooms (I think that's what it's called when the communication is synchronous), real audio, screen cams, and cd-rom.

Briefly, the GEMBA program comprises 5 terms with, generally, 3 courses in each. Each term proceeds as follows--3 week pre-residential reading period, 2 week residential session, 11 week interactive distance learning period. The residential sessions are held in: Session 1--Durham, Session 2--Austria & Chech Republic, Session 3--Hong Kong & Shanghai, Session 4 (my term to teach)--Brazil & Argentina, and Session 5--Durham.

If you are interested further, just let me know and we can talk or I can send you some materials.

Best regards,

Bob

All upper level courses continue to use the tools introduced in the Intro course with additional tools introduced in these courses

Our weak spot right now is probably Auditing where I would like to find good/affordable data extraction and analysis software and stat sampling software. We previously utilized the AICPA's technical research software but that has now been licensed to PPC so we need to investigate the terms of that license.

There are non-credit student taught introductory sessions available on text processing and spreadsheets that intro students are encouraged to attend if they have never used these tools. Most students, however, seem to pick it up pretty quickly in the weekly lab and their skills become stronger over the course of their studies due to the continued use of the resources.

Accounting Information Systems

Database software (Paradox or Access) for simple database creation and manipulation of data exported from QuickBooks or Peachtree; Peachtree for Windows for an independent team software implementation project. This semester I am adding use of the HomeSite HTML editor for student created web pages supporting selected technology in accounting topics and the Peachtre Business Internet suite to create an electronic commerce web site for a hypothetical company.

Most classes are taught in a classroom with a multimedia computer linked to the Internet and a wide screen projector.

Commercial Software Use (aside from word processors and spreadsheets):

(Per Mike Kinney)

Electronic Transparencies (Honors Management Accounting)

Comments:

In short, student reaction to commercial electronic aids has  been  mixed. On the negative side, students criticize the canned nature of the  presentations and problems related to time consumed  in setting up the  technology. On the positive side, students indicate the electronic  presentations add to the interest of the class. (Per C. J. Nixon)

Tax Preparation Software

(405 Intermediate Taxation)
RIA

Tax Software has been adopted for student learning outside the classroom.

Comments:

Student reaction to commercial electronic aids has been very  positive. It speeds the research process. I have interviewed students after  they have begun employment and their reaction to the use of electronic  aids has  always been positive.  (Per Murphy Smith)

DacEasy (Intermediate)

VP Expert (Auditing/Systems)

Comments:

Student reaction to DacEasy has been mixed. There has been  positive   feedback on VP Expert.  To my knowledge, no faculty members have conducted  research on DacEasy to determine the impact on students. I have conducted  research on VP Expert -- forthcoming article in "Expert Systems with  Applications."  (Per Carlton Stolle)

DacEasy Accounting

Tax and Accounting Software's EZ Accounting

(Both of the above are General Ledger Software Packages used in  Intermediate   Accounting II)

Comments:

Students have been very happy to use up-to-date proprietary  material and to move away from the manual work which they had used in earlier  courses.  We've been too slow to embrace these electronic aids to learning.  (Per Carol Sullivan)

Platinum (Accounting Information Systems)

Visual Basic (Accounting Information Systems)

Electronic data bases in the library have been adopted for student  learning   outside the classroom

Comments:

Students have enjoyed the exposure to "real-world" accounting applications. These are great tools but they cannot replace some aspects  of  learning...it is important that professors identify strengths and  weaknesses of aids before curriculum is implemented.

Custom Software Development and Use:

(Per Marty Loudder)

Internet (Intermediate I)

This uses any hardware with Internet (WWW) access

Comments:

Student reaction to this has been very favorable. They find it  very   convenient and a timely way to get assignments and handouts.   (Per Todd Sayre)

Tutorial (Marty Loudder) - (Produced for and used in accounting courses)

Toolbox was used for authoring

Comments:

In answer to whether our institution will increase rewards for  developing these aids, no.   (Per Murphy Smith)

L. Murphy Smith - Two expert system applications using VP Expert    (Systems/Auditing)

Slide show on ethics - Slide.com (from Logitech) for PC was used for  authoring

Comments:

Student reaction to these locally-produced modules has been  positive.   Faculty members have conducted research to determine the impact of these aids  on students. In answer to whether our institution will increase rewards for developing these aids, I hope so.

Custom Software Development and Use:

2000 hours of Multimedia ToolBook (Accounting Theory/Managerial Accounting/Accounting Information Systems)

Web Page (See Documents 8a and 8b for course syllabi)

Audio, video hardware is required and CD-ROM playback is used

Comments: Student reaction to commercial electronic aids has been good. They feel it lets them apply what they have learned in class, and the computerized practice set enables them to feel they are accounting for a real company. Students feel that the material on the locally-produced modules is long and hard, but at the same time very convenient for efficient and effective learning. Research conducted on these modules indicates that it nearly doubles examination performance. In answer to whether our institution will increase rewards for development of these aids, I am uncertain. To date the institutional support for technology development has been marginal.

Comments: Student reaction to commercial electronic aids has been favorable. Additional development of these aids is necessary. Dr. D'Arcy Becker and I have investigated the use of hypertext in terms of intrinsic motivation, student learning/achievement, and individual differences in learning styles. Student reaction to locally-produced modules has been good. In answer to whether our institution will increase rewards for development of these aids, only if this materials development is tied to research.

Bob, Darrell,

Bob...thanks for your kind words. I just wanted to indicate that the book has been revised quite substantially since you last saw it. It underwent one revision in December/January, and another one last month.

I would also recommend conferring with Pat Essex at Bowling Green State University, Jerry Siebel at Univ. of South Florida, and Stacy Kovar at Kansas State. They too have used the book and may be willing to share their experiences.

November 24, 1998 message from Jagdish S. Gangolly
I have been taking a look at SAP for our Arthur Andersen Graduate Systems Lab. It is my present understanding that:

1. It requires considerable commitment of resources on the part of the school. The use itself is $7,500 a year. In addition, my figures tell me that the hardware to run SAP itself can run over $20,000 (we are talking about a 4X200MHZ Pentium II for NT or a similar configuration for Solaris, with Hard disks of at least around 50GB, a RAM of at least 1GB -- 2GB recommended), and all the paper shuffling tasks that can mount the costs.

2. Commitment on the part of the school to integrate it throughout the curriculum. It is not easy to prod non-systems faculty to use it.

3. SAP sits on top of some database software such as ORACLE or DB2 that itself can be burdensome in terms of administration.

4. I am not sure about this (I have a pile of SAP fine print legal documents on my desk that I do not expect to read till January), but have been told by others, that there are certain restrictive clauses in the academic alliance contract on the use of other ERP stuff.

In my department, for instance, we already run ORACLE on a Sun Enterprise server 450( 256MB RAM, 20GB HD), and are now installing DB2 Universal server on an NT platform (IBM Netfinity 5500, with 128MB RAM, 12GB HD). Even these two powerful machines were humbled by the prospect of running SAP. Now I am asking myself the question if such colossal investment is worth the effort. I am now looking at Oracle’s applications and Peoplesoft, which are a lot more generous to educational institutions.

It is my understanding that only a handful of schools use SAP (Cal State Chico, Purdue, Georgia Tech, and one other school whose name I do not recollect), and I would very much be interested in knowing about theie experiences. I would also be interested in knowing if SAP has given the product at nominal prices to any educational institution (I am talking about $500 or less that others charge).

November 24, 1998 reply from Roger Debreceny rogerd@NETBOX.COM

I am surprised that SAP is charging for the software. Here in Singapore, and I know this to be true in Australia as well, there is no charge for the software. SAP also provides training (100 hours per year) and access to a mock company .. they are also prepared to talk about other terms and conditions.

While the hardware requirements are rather breathtaking, the cost of the hardware is not as much a consideration as the curriculum design and implementation issues. In my view, there is little point in adopting SAP unless one does it in (at least) three courses. The learning curve for the students is too steep.

For students to see the integration between logistics, accounting, production etc., etc. is of great value. Further, SAP emphasises the understanding and implementing in software, the corporation’s business processes. This, surely, should be an important element of the introductory course(s), the management accounting course(s) and the audit course(s), as well as the systems course.

Finally, SAP does have a lock on the large corporate ERP market.

November 24, 1998 reply from Skip White skipw@UDEL.EDU

On SAP - At Delaware we joined the SAP University Alliance last summer, put together a committee, developed our implementation plan, started training faculty, and I am now in the process of getting the server in place - This is a large committment and a major undertaking - Believe me, 100 hours goes NOWHERE - You will blow that on 2 or 3 classes - We originally signed up for the lowest level of support and training days (the $5,000 level - which includes 70+ days

and also covers SAP doing the install and tuning of the system) and we already have over-committed faculty to training days - We will be upgrading to the max level of support and training in the near future - About the hardware - It is

unwise to scrimp on the hardware configuration - you will not win! - Be sure to budget in the neighborhood of $30,000 - $40,000 for the initial box and plan on moving up from there - CSU Chico for example has gotten hardware grants in the neighborhood of $400,000 and Texas is in the same ballpark -

My advise is to think before you jump and plan for a MAJOR committment - Skip

Hi Bob,

I was looking at your survey results and noticed an error in a Web link on page.

SCAD refers to the Simulated Case for Audit Decisions by William L. Felix, Marcia S. Niles and myself. The SCAD that is linked is an engineering related site. While SCAD has no web site at this time, inquiries can be sent to my email address.

We are in the process of completing SCAD V which updates the simulation to represent a high-tech video chip manufacturer. The software has also been updated to a windows 95/98/NT interface.

The revised version of the simulation should be available this spring.

Thanks,
