Assessment instructions Your first assessment task is to create a 5-minute video presentation that explains key accounting concepts, stakeholders and characteristics of financial accounting to managers with non-accounting backgrounds. The presentation will address three particular items with the key details included below:
a. Accounting concept (Choose ONE):
i. Briefly explain the concept
ii. Outline which financial statement it belongs
iii. Provide an example, outlining its key features
b. Key stakeholder (Choose ONE):

iii. Main type of accounting information they need (include an example)
c. Qualitative characteristic (Choose ONE):

ii. Outline why it is important for accounting
iii. Provide an example that shows its importance.
The options available for the concept, stakeholder and characteristic that you can use is included in the table below:

• Liability • Government • Materiality
• Equity • Suppliers • Faithful representation
• Revenue • Shareholders • Comparability
• Expense • Environment • Verifiability
• Creditors • Timeliness

You are required to create a PowerPoint document that provides the key points of your presentation. Your presentation will require you to record both the webcam and the screen simultaneously. The best way to do this is through Zoom. Open your Zoom account and enter a meeting room. Then share screen to show your prepared Powerpoint. Have your webcam on and click record to your desktop.
A link to this video presentation needs to be submitted to your lecturer via the Moodle assignment tool by Week 4 Sunday at 11:59pm. A video on how to upload the MP4 video from your desktop to Echo360 can be found in the submission link. Please view this before submitting.
Late submissions will result in a reduction in marks in accordance with the ICMS Assessment Submission, Extension and Feedback Procedures. As part of your submission, you will be required to include an ICMS Cover Page and a Reference List including all references you used for your presentation. These can be uploaded to the Moodle assignment submission tool. You will NOT be required to submit your PowerPoint document separately as it will already be included in your recording.
As the time limit for the video is 5-minutes, it is important to be precise with your explanations and not provide unnecessary information. Deductions will apply if your presentation exceeds the 5-minute time limit. For more information regarding how marks are allocated, refer to the Marking Rubric.
