They stated that the primary duty of accountants is to render services by providing information about economic entities that is measure in terms of money.
The summaries of accounting education research presented by Williams et al. (1988) and Rebele et al. (1991, 1998), however, reveal that no empirical study has performed a direct assessment of accounting students’ perceptions regarding any individual accounting course. Nor has any study performed an assessment of the relationship between course perceptions and major selection.

This is where accounting comes in as it plays a vital role in tracking down the activities and resources of a business and reporting back these activities in the form of relevant information (p.2).
A number of studies have identified features of feedback that are important for learning.

An important point noted by Sadler is that we should not assume that students know how to use the feedback map to...
