Since the early 2000s there have been calls for higher education to provide opportunities for experienced-based learning in business programs. ABSEL’s focus on experience-based learning and pedagogy provides an opportunity for sharing effective pedagogical tools. This case study assignment is designed to give accounting students an opportunity to interpret transactions and prepare basic financial statements. It is best used in the first course in the financial accounting major but could be modified for use in a core course in a graduate program. This paper includes the case, the grading rubric, and student responses to its use.
