Enhancement of Students' Learning and Integrity in Data Analyses Projects

The purpose of this study is to enhance students' learning and academic integrity in data analyses projects. In conventional intermediate accounting classes, students are assigned a data analysis project to work on Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Each student’s assignment requires the same kind of analysis but includes a different data set initiated by hidden macro commands. The pilot study shows that students in a control group (with same data for all students) submit more accurate answers. However, students in the test group (with different data among students) have received higher scores in the separate post-project assessment, with higher satisfaction on the project.
