Critical thinking skills, monty hall problem, public accounting, communication in accounting
Students’ critical thinking skills have been linked to success in undergraduate auditing classes (Jenkins, 1998), and to their perceived success in public accounting (Baril et al., 1998). This paper presents an assignment used in an undergraduate auditing class that serves as a stepping stone in the development of critical thinking, technology, and communication skills. The assignment requires students to solve a problem whose answer is not intuitive to many people, and requires the use of spreadsheets and written communication. It should be noted that this exercise has general applicability across multiple business disciplines.
