Abstract

This paper presents effects of an online homework management system (OHMS) in a tax accounting course. An examination is made of student performance and perceptions with and without use of an OHMS in an undergraduate upper-level tax accounting course. Students indicated that they perceived their learning performance was enhanced due to use of the OHMS; however, this perception was not supported by the actual performance results. Empirical evidence indicates that an OHMS does not increase student learning performance. At the same time, an OHMS does provide an objective measurement of homework performance along with instant and convenient feedback to students.

Keywords: Online homework, homework management systems, online pedagogy, learning productivity
