Unlimited accounting exercises
Sumigi offers students a wide range of accounting exercises. Exercises range from the simple and straightforward, such as solving the accounting equation and calculating the current ratio, all the way to creating financial statements from a trial balance, and everything in between.
New exercises are randomized every time with new figures and new accounting events, which is unlike the static exercises you'll find in print textbooks or other online platforms. This means you can keep practicing a topic until you feel you have fully mastered it.
Sumigi offers several ways to make accounting exercises a bit more fun and engaging. If you know about gamification then these features will come as no surprise!
Sumigi has badges for achievement: trophies for every exercise you complete, and stars for every module you compete. These badges are then visible on a shared leaderboard and you can choose to make yourself known on the leaderboard or not.
Furthermore, each exercise can be personalized with your own business name and currency, so you can practice the accounting for your own start-up company if you like!
Use officially as part of your course
You can purchase an individual Sumigi licence, but Sumigi is much more fun with other students, and with your accounting instructor fully on board to monitor and detect any learning issues.
Your School or University can pay the licence on your behalf, and we offer a substantial standard discount for accounting instructors. It is worth alerting your instructor to Sumigi if they don’t already know about it.
Higher student engagement
Sumigi offers instructors a great opportunity to engage students with the accounting material. The software was originally created by fellow accounting instructors, who felt that a lack of student practice throughout the course was a key driver of poor exam performance and other student outcomes.
Due to Sumigi's advanced exercise measurement system, instructors can see the student engagement online and realtime on the instructor dashboard, and feedback suggests that instructors find this very satisfying!
Sumigi captures some of the most detailed data on exercises in the sector, and presents this to students and instructors in an engaging way, informed by the most recent insights in data visualization and information dashboards.
Instructors can criss-cross between analytics for students (e.g., best performing students, worst performing students, most engaged students, least engaged students) and analytics for exercises (e.g., most difficult exercises, least difficult exercises, fastest exercises, slowest exercises).
This data provides great feedback for instructors, and allows them to effectively adapt their courses "in-flight", to ensure they focus on the issues that matter.
Fits with your study plan
The exercises in Sumigi are completely configurable, meaning that you can design the exercise structure in any which way you like, such that it completely matches your own study plan.
We know that accounting standards differ across the world, and we offer IFRS and US GAAP based accounting exercises.
Sumigi's standard, for-purchase workbooks are designed around the major accounting qualifications and the leading textbooks in financial accounting, but we also offer tailor-made workbooks to those with special requirements.
