A Process Costing Simulation

Experiential Learning in the Introductory Managerial Accounting Course

Authors

Abstract

“A process costing simulation: Experiential Learning in the Introductory Managerial Accounting Course” is an in-class, small-team, active learning simulation that is designed to assist introductory managerial accounting students in their understanding of the process costing topic. Students work in production teams and departments to produce a product that is not familiar to them. Results from pre- and post-simulation assessments suggest that the activity improved higher order thinking in students. Qualitative data suggests that students enjoy the activity and believe that it does enhance their understanding and comprehension of the process costing topic.
