Transaction Analysis Tic-Tac-Toe

Logo for Transaction Analysis Tic-Tac-Toe
Transaction analysis is the process of identifying the specific effects of economic events on the accounting equation.

Students enrolled in principles of financial accounting courses need practice applying these concepts and playing tic-tac-toe helps to accomplish this task in a novel way.

The idea behind this material is a good one--giving the students a chance to apply their accounting knowledge in a fun way. This activity would be good as a review of material. The questions could be changed for different topics: sales on account, adjusting entries, special journals.

Technical Remarks:

There seems to be a slight glitch in the game. When I played the game and purposefully chose the incorrect answer to allow a "steal" of the square, the game seemed to malfunction. After selecting the correct respone for the steal, I was taken back to the beginning slide, with no Xs or Os on the board. I think if this technical glitch was fixed, this would be a good review activity.
