The Computerized Accounting course objective is to use an automated accounting system to process accounting data and to understand the issues surrounding a computerized accounting system.  In this course you will utilize QuickBooks Online to:

  1. Develop the skills necessary to complete computer accounting for service and merchandising businesses.
  2. Complete exercises using accounts receivable, accounts payable, invoicing, payroll and inventory.
  3. Prepare financial statements and complete financial statement analysis.
  4. Convert a QuickBooks desktop company file to QuickBooks Online.

The QuickBooks accounting software is used as a vehicle to process accounting data and to observe first hand the issues related to an accounting information system.  The texbook you purchased, Computer Accounting with QuickBooks Online: A Cloud-Based Approach, by Carol Yacht & Susan Crosson, provides detailed instruction on the use of QuickBooks. 

Quiz material will be taken from readings and QuickBooks.  Chaper Quizes are found on the Online Learning Center Website. You will be emailing me your QB Quiz results for each chapter.  There is an option at the bottom of the Quiz to send the results via e-mail at the end of each quiz.  This is mandatory.

I will assign and you will be graded on homework assignments.  Graded homework will include both QuickBooks assignments and reading responses.

Class participation will be a part of your grade.  Please be prepared to participate in discussions during class.

There will be a mid-term and a final as well.

Here are my expectations of you:

  • All work is to be completed and submitted on time.
  • When you have a question outside of class you will email the question.  I will monitor my emails and will respond.
  • You must complete all of the exercises assigned.  Each chapter builds off from lessons learned in the prior chapter.





Evaluation Criteria:

Discussion:  Based upon class discussions, students will demonstrate an understanding of accounting principles, terminology, automated accounting systems and controls.

Homework/QuickBooks Assignments:  Homework will consist of questions from the readings and QuickBooks exercises.

Quizzes: Will cover material previously covered.  All formats of quizzes can be expected: true/fase, multiple choice, problems.  Quizzes will be used to assess the use of an automated accounting system and the student's understanding of course content.

Mid-Term/Final:  There will be a mid-term and a final.  The mid-term will be in two parts:  part one will be short answer covering the material learned; part two will be QB based.  The final will be the QuickBooks Online Certification Exam.

Breakdown by %:

  • Class discussion                  10%
  • Homework/QuickBooks:       20%
  • Quizzes                                20%
  • Mid-Term                              25%

B = 80 - 89%

C = 70 - 79%

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
