Course Handouts








This page will serve as a media for posting current events and upcoming items of interest to students  assigned to my classes.  You will find things like reminders of items due for submission in class, course changes applicable to all class sections, special notices, weather advisories, personal notes, etc.


Section 1 - Temporary Postings

This section will consist of those announcements that are determined to be of limited duration.  Such postings will usually stay for approximately two weeks. 



 Submission of Homework Problems

Just a reminder that you have an unlimited number of submissions for your homework assignments.  On each new attempt, students revise their previous attempts (you are not required to start over).



Course Student Learning Outcomes

As we discussed in the course introduction, all colleges and universities in Texas must measure student performance by established Student Learning Outcomes.  This is an integral part of the accreditation process of these institutions.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are defined as the specific observable or measurable results that are expected subsequent to a learning experience. These outcomes may involve knowledge (cognitive), skills (behavioral), or attitudes (affective) that provide evidence that learning has occurred as a result of a specified course, program activity, or process.

As reflected in the course syllabus, there are a specific number of measurable learning outcomes established by the Business Department for each accounting course (ACCT 2301 and ACCT 2302).  Each instructor determines the measurement tools to determine the student's performance for each of the learning outcomes.  I will be using  selected exams as the major item to measure each student's performance for each SLO.  According to the SLO measurement rules, a student that achieves a cumulative minimum grade of 70%, or better, on each SLO item is deemed to have mastered that learning objective.  Therefore, it is critical that the homework assignments be attempted and all exams are taken as scheduled.

The performance results of each student are submitted at the end of each semester, which is then consolidated and reported.



                                                                         Connect Homework Problems

As you work the solutions for the assigned problems in the Connect System, you will find that many times you will have to prepare supporting schedules, journals, worksheets, etc.  These are necessary to arrive at the answers required for entry into the homework system.  If you have not already done so, I would suggest that many of the forms needed to do this work, can be found in the generic forms available on this website.  

Also, a number of homework assignments require special forms or schedules.  In these cases, I will provide notes and special forms on your "Assignments" webpage to assist you in completing the assignments.


                                                                  Generic Working Papers

Generic working papers have been provided in the "Course Resources" webpage under Course Handouts. You have a choice of two different formats that can be downloaded. You will find the form downloads listed, on the Course Handouts webpage, immediately after the listings of the textbook sources. These generic forms should be adequate for completing most of the manual assigned homework problems. 



                                                                  Connect eBook Access

To gain access to the Connect eBook for the purposes of reviewing a chapter, working an assignment, researching a topic, or other issue, follow these steps:

   (1)  Log-on to the Connect System, then click on the eBook icon.

   (2)  When the eBook cover comes up, click on the Menu icon in the upper left of the screen (icon looks like 3 blue

   (3)  Go down the Menu list and click on the desired subject or chapter.

   (4)  A subject listing appears.  Go down that listing to the desired subject or item.  Click on that tab.

   (5)  The next screen will take you to the eBook page for the selected subject.





Section 2 - Permanent Postings

This section will consist generally of those announcements that are considered to be permanent in nature.  Therefore, such postings will usually stay for the current semester. 



Exam Reviews

Each Exam Review will be posted the week it is presented in class. Copies will be posted on the Exams/Grades Webpage for downloading, if you are not in class to receive a printed copy.


Summary Exam Grades 

Summary class results of each exam will be posted to the appropriate course webpage. Click on your course title on the Exams/Grades webpage to review the summary results.  Summary grades will be posted within two days after exam day.



General Ledger Software Applications

have provided detailed instructions, on this website, for using the General Ledger software.  You will find the these instructions on the General Ledger software link appearing on the Course Handouts webpage.  (Note:  The General Ledger software is used only for the Financial Accounting course).


Generic Working Papers

You will find a group of generic forms, listed on the Course Resources webpage under  Course Handouts, immediately after the listings of the Material Sources section.   You have a choice of two different formats that can be downloaded.  These generic forms should be adequate for completing most of the assigned homework problems.  As a result, you may find that it is not necessary to purchase the optional Working Papers workbook that accompanies the textbook.

As has been my practice in past years, I always offer these systems to students (at a significant reduction) before I attempt to dispose of them to the public-at-large.  I would much rather that students, that need a computer, have first choice.
