AbstractThis study examines the effect of quizzes on students' achievement in accounting examinations as measured by exam scores. Two groups of students (experimental group and control group) who were taking the cost accounting course (Administrative Science A.S. 441) during the first term (Fall) 1990/1991 were chosen for the study. The choice of this course was inevitable because it was the only course which consisted of two sections and taught by the researcher. Students who dropped or repeated the course were excluded. The experimental group (49 students) was given four quizzes during the term. These quizzes carried 15% of the total grade. The control group (22 students) was not given any quizzes. The results of the t-test indicate that students who have taken quizzes during the term did not perform significantly better than students who did not take quizzes. Possible explanations for this result are provided.
