For years I have noticed how hard my students work on my course during examination weeks and have toyed with the idea of giving weekly quizzes as a means of motivating them to work that hard more consistently. The material which Intermediate Accounting covers is extensive and technical. Students can ill-afford to fall behind. When they do, they're likely to find it much more difficult to catch up than they expect. Perhaps as important, class meetings can be woefully lackluster and nonproductive when significant numbers of students don't know what's going on.
