Assessing Students’ Performance in Accountancy through Team Delegation: Self Organize Model Vs Mcgrath’s Model (A Team Design Experiment)


This paper aims to (1) assess students’ performance in accountancy through team delegation, by comparing two team designs, the first one is based on McGrath’s Model (class A) and the other is based on self organize system (class B), and (2) give a practical guidance for lecturers to facilitate students inside classrooms so the lecturers have the capability to build effective team following the guidance developed by Bryant and Albring (2006). We implemented our team designs to second semester accountancy students who were taking ‘Introduction to Accountancy’ course at Maranatha Christian University. The result shows that the performance of students at class A is better than the one of students at class B. Moreover, the students at class A feel happy and excited when they work in their new teams; in addition, they experience a significant difference between doing tasks by their experience and doing the tasks in their new team.
