Abstract

Although computers have been integrated into a number of accounting courses, there is a lack of empirical evidence supporting their effect on student achievement. This article describes the results of a study that compared the achievement of students in intermediate accounting when taught with/without the aid of computers. The computer was integrated into the intermediate accounting curriculum as a supplemental teaching tool. The students in the treatment group completed their homework assignments with the assistance of prewritten computer programs, while the control group completed assignments without the aid of computers. The present study found that the achievement of the students using the computer was significantly higher than the achievement of the students who did not utilize the computers.
