Abstract

This study aims to explore the effects of having a Bookkeeping foundation, Prior Knowledge of the Freshman Accounting course, of a certain technical college in Taiwan, on learning effectiveness. This study applied the Convenience Sampling method on the research population. The primary test subjects of this study are freshman students and full-time lecturers (instructor level and above) of the Accounting subjects of a certain technical college in Taiwan. In addition, the statistical analysis method adopted in this study is the Two-way Univariate ANCOVA (two independent variables, one dependent variable, and one covariate) of the Quasi-Experimental Design method. The findings of this study show that: (1) after excluding pre-test learning effectiveness, freshman students, who graduated from high (vocational) school (with high- school, or vocational-school background) with a Bookkeeping Foundation of Prior Knowledge, exhibit various levels of significant positive impact on their post-test learning effectiveness; (2) after excluding pre-test learning effectiveness, freshman students (with high-, or vocational-school background), who actually performed homework assignments, exhibit various levels of significant positive impact on their post-test learning effectiveness; and (3) without excluding pre-test learning effectiveness, students having a Bookkeeping Foundation of Prior Knowledge, and performing homework assignments exhibit significant positive interactive effects on their post-test learning effectiveness. The findings of this study may serve as a reference for accounting instructors of technical colleges and decision-makers with the education authorities to use in their teaching design and policy making.
