All exams will be in person. One hand-written crib sheet of 8.5x11” is allowed. Randomized order and Q-SID may be used. Make-ups only for documented medical reasons and similar issues. Limited time exams – exams must be taken at the stated time as noted on the last page - no “take homes”. All exams will be proctored. Homework (15%) For accounting, there is really no other way to learn than to work the problems yourself. For this reason there is extensive assignment of homework which should be handed in to the GSI at sections or submitted via bcourses. Please hand in homeworks on time as there is no credit for late homeworks. Homeworks will be graded based on effort on the following scale: 0, √- ,√or √+. These will equate to 0/3, 1/3, 2/3 and 3/3. Lowest two homework grades do not count. Homework must be done by the student. Group Mini Cases (10%) – ATTENDANCE REQUIRED The group exercises will be two to four in-class questionnaires based on mini cases about management accounting. The idea of the mini cases is to give students some experience of approaching practical problems in the topics of the course, and to work in teams. The mini cases are to be done in randomly assigned groups which will be advised by the professor. Other group sizes or individuals doing the group work receive half points. Each person in the group will be asked to evaluate their group mates (“peer evaluation”) and this will be used to weight the pointsof each student. Please ensure to have access to your text book on mini case days. Class Participation (10%) Attendance is necessary but not sufficient for gaining class participation points. Maximum points will be gained for frequent helpful comments and input, for assisting colleagues in their learning and helping move the class forward. Email Professor if you think you are not getting a fair chance to contribute(!). Participation points will be max(lecture,section). Please ensure to attend during the add/drop period to safeguard your spot in the class!
