26 Pages Posted: 4 Oct 2006
This paper reports the outcome assessement of an accounting department's writing-skill improvement initiative. The paper compares the writing skills of accounting students who participated in the writing initiative with the writing skills of other business students who did not participate. Results from both outcome assessment methodologies indicate that accounting students' writing skills improve as students participate in the writing initiative. This paper provides insight into the features of a successful writing initiative and offers methological suggestions for conducting outcome assessments of writing initiatives.
