The following hypotheses guide this study: 1. Students in a competency-based beginning accounting class will score higher on publisher provided standardized tests than those students who are enrolled in a class that is not competency based; 2. Students in the lower half of their class ranking, according to their cumulative grade averages, will achieve significantly higher scores on publisher provided standardized tests; 3. Students in the upper half of their class ranking, according to their cumulative grade average, will achieve slightly higher scores on publisher provided standardized tests.
