Purpose & Objectives of the Course:
The purpose of this course is to help you develop a strong conceptual foundation in accounting information systems that can serve as a basis for lifelong learning. The major goals for this course are to:
1. Provide a strong conceptual foundation in accounting systems and controls.
2. Enable you to use this foundation in developing and evaluating accounting applications and in problem solving.
3. Present information in a way that facilitates your learning.
Required textbook and materials:
Gelinas, Ulric J. Jr., Richard B. Dull, Patrick R. Wheeler. Accounting Information Systems. 9th Edition, SouthWestern. ISBN: 978-0-538-46931-9 & Owen, Glen. Using QuickBooks Pro 2011 ISBN: 978-1-111-182254-5 Bundle ISBN: 978-1-133-39960-5
Requirements for evaluation:
Homework will be taken up and count as two (2) tests.
|After Chapter 3||100 points|
|After Chapter 6||100 points|
|After Chapter 9 (Final Exam) Post test Counts as 20% of your final grade||100 points|
Because of the bonus opportunities including bonus quiz and take-home portions on all tests except the final the following grades are given without appeal:
100 - 90 = A 79 - 70 = C
89 - 80 = B 69 - 60 = D
Below 60 = F
Additional Bonus Opportunity:
Bonus points are possible with a bonus question on all in-class tests including the final exam. They are worth 3 points each. In addition, there is an opportunity to take quizzers on line which will provide 3 points added to the average for a perfect score, (you can receive a prorated portion of those point). NOTE: The testing policy is - If you have to take a test late you will forfeit 10 points for each day late that you take the test late (not counting weekends). More than three days late in taking the test will result in a grade of zero ("0").
There is no exemption from the final exam in this class so don't even ask.
Your performance in this subject is directly correlated with your doing the homework and all class assignments. Homework will be taken up and graded at random during the semester. This grade will be applied to the homework portion of the evaluation and is equivalent to a test grade.
As part of the requirement of the University I will be taking attendance for each class period. I have an attendance policy as documented in the "absence and Grading Policy" attached to this outline. You are all adults and have paid for this course, don't cheat yourself by not attending class. As a professional, you will be expected to be responsible for showing up for work and accomplishing the tasks required of you. LAST DATE TO DROP WITH A "W" March 27, 2013.
Clicker Rule (Attendance):
You are absent if you do not bring your clicker to class the quizzers in class count as part of your homework grade. If you are truly absent so is your clicker.
Student Conduct Statement:
The following action is prohibited under the Student Conduct Code: Disorderly Conduct: Any behavior which disrupts the regular or normal functions of the University community, including behavior which breaches the peace or violates the rights of others.
Warning: I will not tolerate phone texting in my class. The first time is a warning after that you will lose points off of your test average (All tests) at the rate of 5 points for each infraction.
Students at the University of Arkansas at Monticello are expected to conduct themselves appropriately, keeping in mind that they are subject to the laws of the community and standards of society. The student must not conduct him/herself in a manner that disrupts the academic community or breaches the freedom of other students to progress academically.
For any instance of academic dishonesty that is discovered by the instructor, whether the dishonesty is found to be cheating, collusion, duplicity, or plagiarism, the result for the student(s) involved will be a zero on that specific project and if it happens a second time a zero in the course.
Clicker Rules (Cheating):
You are not to use another personís clicker to answer quizzers for them, if caught you will earn a zero for the quiz as will the person whose clicker you used, in addition 10 points will be deducted from both your subsequent tests. I consider this cheating and I wonít tolerate this any more than catching you copying off someoneís test.
It is the policy of the University of Arkansas at Monticello to accommodate individuals with disabilities pursuant to federal law and the Universityís commitment to equal educational opportunities. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the instructor of any necessary accommodations at the beginning of the course.
