Students’ Reaction to Self-Grading Homework Assignments in Financial Accounting Classes

As information technology develops in teaching environments, more professors tend to assign computer-based projects. The purpose of this study is to improve the quality of computer-based homework assignments. Three groups of students in financial accounting classes are assigned several sets of assignments. The first group has identical assignments among students. The second group has assignments at a same format but with randomized numbers, such that each student has different numbers. The third group has randomized numbers with self-grading function.  A pilot test shows students in the third group reveals the highest achievement in the assignment and the highest satisfaction.
