Abstract

Posters are frequently used as an assessment tool with undergraduate
students within Health and Social Science related fields, but have not been
used within undergraduate accountancy education. This study reports the
introduction of poster presentations as a SCQF level nine summative
assessment with undergraduate accounting students. The study discusses
the development of this method of assessment and evaluates its success in
one undergraduate accounting module. Overall, the poster assessment was
positively received by students engaging with the learning opportunities it
provided, resulting in increased collaboration and constructivism within a
learner-centred approach.
