Mini-Case 3 (75 Points)
BUS1 121A Intermediate Accounting I
Topics and Groups Due: April 26, 2021 at 11:59 PM PST (E-mail)
Due: May 12, 2021 at 10:00 AM PST
Follow the prompt below. Please type using a word processing program and submit online via Canvas.
Write as much or as little as you feel necessary to show your new expertise. You may use all available
resources to complete this case Ã¢â‚¬â€œ e.g., lecture slides, notes, your book, and the Accounting Standards
Codification. Collaboration with others in your group is allowed to the extent that it is helpful. How you
work together is up to you Ã¢â‚¬â€œ however, the final turned-in paper is ultimately a group effort and you are
mutually responsible for the final work. As such, I encourage you to take ownership of every part of the
finished product Ã¢â‚¬â€œ not just what you are assigned. Please turn in only one finished assignment for each
group. Groups have a maximum size of four. However, there is no minimum size of group (e.g., groups of
1 are acceptable). Note that I will consider the groupÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s size when grading and have higher expectations
with groups of greater size.
You must e-mail me with your topic and group members no later than November 20, 2020. Note
that while I will allow changes after that date due to extenuating circumstances, this is to force you to
begin work promptly.
Use appropriate citations where relevant and according to your professional judgment. When using the
codification, please use the following style:
1) Cite the ASC down to the Paragraph. For example, (ASC 330-10-05-01)
2) At the end of the document in an Appendix, copy-paste the paragraph you cite from the
codification into the word document.
3) The main goal is to interpret your findings into Ã¢â‚¬Ëœplain EnglishÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ as best you can. In other
words, how would you explain the appropriate accounting treatment to a colleague, boss, or
business partner who has a basic understanding of accounting? You may (and are encouraged
to) use debits and credits and/or t-accounts to illustrate the accounting if appropriate.
For all other citations, please consistently follow a single style (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago). Always cite
if you are making a factual claim.
Find a topic in accounting that you find interesting and would like to learn more about. This can
be an academic topic (e.g., earnings management, conservatism, earnings) or a practical topic (e.g., how
to account for revenue from online advertising, how to estimate the fair value of certain financial
instruments). Your topic (and the members of your group, accordingly) must be approved by me. I
recommend you talk with me first in order to determine if I think the topic is acceptable to avoid delays.
Expectations and Grading:
This is not intended to be a simple or straightforward project. I will expect to see creative
thinking, thoughtful analysis, and a display of your general competency of using the tools we have talked
about in class. Accordingly, I will follow the following qualitative rubric for your reports. A grade of
Ã¢â‚¬ËœA++Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ is reserved for particularly special and exceptional reports which I believe go well above and
beyond my expectations for the class.
0 < x < 39 0 Grading Rubric: Qualitative Guidelines An A++ paper exhibits superior structure, exceptional thought and analysis, and teaches me something new that is both interesting and useful. All analysis included in the report will be useful and integrated into the 75 overarching message in a substantial way. There is a near-zero amount of orthographic and typographic errors. Ultimately, this is a near-perfect paper that I would be willing to externally circulate. Accordingly, this grade is reserved solely for truly exceptional papers. An A paper exhibits very strong structure, excellent thought and analysis, and is genuinely interesting to read through its entirety. Nearly all analysis in the report is useful and is integrated into the overarching message in a 71 substantial way. Any orthographic and typographical errors are minor and do not get in the way of the message and analysis of the report itself. This is a paper that shows true scholarly thought and professional contribution. A B paper exhibits sound structure, clear thought and analysis, and is generally intellectually stimulating. Most of the analysis in the report is useful and translates to the overarching message in a substantial way. 64 Orthographic and typographic errors may be present and occasionally hinder the primary message of the report. This is a paper that shows a strong attempt at scholarly thought and professional contribution. A C paper has structure that gets in the way of the primary analysis, has unclear thought and analysis, and is not intellectually stimulating in its entirety. There is some unnecessary analysis that that does not translate to 56 the overarching message in a substantive way. Orthographic and typographic errors may be present and, when they are, hinder the primary message of the report. This is a paper that shows a moderate amount of effort at scholarly thought and professional contribution. A D paper has weak structure, little thought or analysis, and does not succeed in being intellectually stimulating. The analysis that is present is often unnecessary or is not tied to the overarching message, or there is not a 65 clear message portrayed throughout the report. Orthographic and typographic errors are common and regularly hinder the primary message of the report. This is a paper that shows a below-average amount of effort towards scholarly thought and professional contribution. An F paper has very weak structure, very little thought or analysis, and fails to be intellectually stimulating in its entirety. The analysis is consistently unnecessary or not tied to the overarching message, or there is no message 41 demonstrated throughout the report. Orthographic or typographic errors are very common and they substantively hinder the message the report tries to portray. This is a paper that shows a failure towards scholarly thought and professional contribution. This is for the case in which I believe the report is incomplete, but there was some effort put in by the participants. Accordingly, it is not enough to 0 < x < 39 deserve a '0', but it is also not a complete assignment, and thus not worthy of the number of points assigned to an 'F' grade. No report submitted or the report submitted is equivalent to submitting no 0 report at all. Points Purchase answer to see full attachment
