Abstract:Results of the study indicated there was no relationship between student aptitude, as measured by ACT scores and high school accounting, and overall performance using the case method. Evidence from scores on the preliminary solutions to the cases, coupled with achievement gains after instructor intervention, suggested that learning with the case method was instructor dependent. Low scores on the final solutions to the cases, together with evidence from key informant interviews, suggested that students were unable to master technical content using the case method. Both the statistical results and key informant interviews confirmed that students experienced difficulties in the introductory accounting course when using the case method.
