Project Title FAC_QUIZ.COM
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Introductory accounting is most frequently a first-year subject and is often taught to a variety of student cohorts in higher education. Non-accounting students are likely to view accounting as a challenging subject and not able to appreciate the course’s relevancy. Therefore, using the Competition Based Learning (CBL) model, a quiz competition (FAC_QUIZ.COM) was designed to improve the level of motivation to learn the first accounting course (ACC106) among non-major accounting students. The FAC_QUIZ.COM learning activity is conducted in two stages (preliminary and final rounds). The instructions have been given to the lecturers and students approximately three weeks prior to the preliminary and final rounds of the quiz competition. Two separate surveys were given during the two stages of quiz competition. Earlier, during the preliminary round, more than 50% of the students indicated their readiness to participate in the FAC_QUIZ.COM quiz competition. In the final round, majority of the students agreed that the FAC_QUIZ.COM help to improve the motivation to learn the first accounting course. Next, the relationship between the results from the final round survey and the final examination grade for ACC106 will be determined to assess the impact of the FAC_QUIZ.COM implementation. The FAC_QUIZ.COM quiz competition is a unique learning activity for non-accounting programs in Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) which is used exclusively in the accounting program. Finally, the video on the final round of the FAC_QUIZ.COM will be uploaded on iLearn and shared among students and lecturers in the entire system of UiTM, which, in turn, encourage the implementation of the similar learning activity in the near future.
