Abstract

The ‘individualised accounting questions’ (IAQ) technique set out in this paper encourages independent active learning. It enables tutors to set individualised accounting questions and construct an answer grid that can be used for any number of students, with numerical values for each student's answers based on their student enrolment number. The individualised questions reduce the risk of collusion and thus allow tutors to set accounting coursework assessments that contribute to final grades in a manner that incentivises students to do them in their own time, drawing on teaching materials and helping them to develop competency. The method also allows specific individualised feedback, and has been used successfully by the authors and found to encourage students to work independently.
