A computer simulation case for the auditing classroom
Burns, David Carlo
MetadataShow full item record
During fiscal year 1972, the writer developed an auditing case which is currently used in the course MN 4151 (Internal Control and Auditing) at the Naval Postgraduate School. This case involves complex auditing and internal control problems related to manufacturing inventories and it is based upon a computer simulation model. The case has been well received by NPS students and appears to be a very effective teaching tool. A teaching approach for using this simulation case is described in an article entitled "A Computer Simulation Approach for Teaching the Evaluation of Internal Control." This article is scheduled for publication by the American Accounting Association early in 1974 in the Association's forthcoming book, tentatively entitled "Accounting Education." This report contains copies of all of the material which is necessary to implement the teaching approach described in the article mentioned above. The purpose of this report is to make the simulation case available to auditing instructors at universities other than the Naval Postgraduate School. (Author)
