Project Description: An individualised assessment generator which generate a series of assignments with varying levels of complexity. The instructor uses the tool to create accounts and transactions of a fictitious business. Students assume the role of an accountant and assist the business owners in various accounting tasks, such as preparing financial statements and providing financial statement analysis. Within each scenario, the system can randomly populate with different variables so that students cannot simply reproduce classmates’ answers.
Motivation: Instructors would like to provide students with opportunities to tackle simulated business cases and draw relevant links between accounting concepts and how they are applied in real world contexts through authentic and unique scenarios which can be dynamically generated for each student.
Deliverables / Outcomes : The assignments serve as trigger points for case study discussion in and out of class. The application can function as a diagnostic, formative and/or summative assessment tool, and is able to generate a solution template. Instructors will be able to retrieve the solution worksheets for each student.
