Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Allocation of Costs Reflection [WLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4] [CLOs: 3, 6]
Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapters 4, 5, and 17 in your textbook.
Write: Make sure your response addressing the following question is more than 200 words and include an in-text citation from the reading material where appropriate.
Some managers believe that allocated costs are arbitrary and therefore not relevant, and that only costs that are direct costs should be reported. Explain why you believe all costs are relevant and why allocation of costs is necessary for accurate financial reporting.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates by commenting on their posts. Though two replies are the basic expectation for class discussions, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you. Continuing to engage with peers and the instructor will further the conversation and provide you with opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real-world experiences with the discussion topics.
