Introductory managerial accounting Jeopardy game for end-of-semester review

Photo of screenshot of PowerPoint for Jeopardy gameA few days ago, I shared a Jeopardy-style PowerPoint file that can be used for an end-of-semester review in introductory financial accounting classes. In this post, I am sharing a Jeopardy-style game that covers basic topics within an introductory managerial accounting course.

This PowerPoint file contains a Jeopardy-style game suitable for use in an introductory financial accounting class. There are six categories: Introductory concepts, Job costing, ABC, C-V-P, Budgeting, and Performance evaluation. There is a Daily Double question and a Final Jeopardy question. Audio is included in the PowerPoint file for optional use.

All of the answers and related questions are based on Managerial Accounting, 5th edition, Braun & Tietz, Pearson Education, 2017. The content should apply to other introductory managerial accounting textbooks as well.

Acknowledgment: To create this Jeopardy-style game, I used a PowerPoint template created by Reid Powell.

 Tips for use

  1. Be sure to practice with the PowerPoint file in presentation mode before class.
  2. This PowerPoint file runs best using Windows, not Mac. Also, it must be run using Microsoft PowerPoint (not Google Slides.)
  3. You can edit any of the answers and related questions as you see fit. You cannot, however, add and delete slides due to the links to the Jeopardy board.
  4. To reset the links on the main board back to yellow, close the PowerPoint file and re-0pen – all the links will be back to yellow.
  5. During the review in class, you will need to keep score manually since there is no built-in scoring mechanism.
