Impact of Accounting Information System on Organizational Effectiveness-A Study of Selected Small and Medium Scale Enterprises in Woji, Portharcourt

Effective and efficient management of every organization is anchored on quality decisions. In order to circumvent financial disasters through wrong and ineffective decisions, there is nowadays a vast pool of financial tools available which can be used to support the decision making process in organizations, which when not explored may lead to management inefficiency. One tool that has proven to be readily available in the promotion of quality decisions in the organization is the accounting information system (AIS). While this is common in the developed countries and highly organized large firms in Nigeria, its contributions to the effectiveness of small and medium scale enterprises in Nigeria is yet to be known. This may not be unconnected with poor accounting education and inaccurate, outdated and in some cases absence of financial record keeping among SME operators.

Factors Affecting Learning Performance of Accounting Information System

Factors Affecting Learning Performance of Accounting Information System

Students’ academic achievement varies between public and private universities in Taiwan (Chen et al., 2010). For example, students enrolled in the public university are more active learners, such as asking teachers questions and discussing academic issues with peers, which contributes to a healthy learning culture and should therefore may create more impact on student academic achievement. In Taiwan, public universities differ from private universities in terms of faculty quality, student quality and resource acquisition. Not only do public universities have a higher percentage of faculty receiving a doctoral degree and a higher admission score requirement for incoming students, but they also have a better learning environment with more resources such as research facilities and computing support. In Taiwan, public universities enjoy a more prestigious status than their private counterparts. Students who studied in the public universities tended to use computers to fulfill more forms of various needs in their daily lives than their private university counterparts. Further, the students in public universities may perform better in the computing knowledge test than the students in private universities. Outstanding students with a good learning attitude prefer to choose the public university over the private university as their first choice in the admission or entrance exam. Taking the difference in students’ quality into consideration, it is expected that there may exist a significant difference in their learning performance between the public and private university students in Accounting majors. As a result, this paper suggests that the learning performance of students in Accounting information system with different learning attitudes may be different.
