Course Project #1 Overview
The Course Project consists of 10 Requirements for you to complete. The Course Project is due at the end of  Week 6. See the Syllabus section ”Due Dates for Assignments & Exams” for due date information. All of the information you need to complete the Course Project is located in this Workbook.
• There are eight worksheets in the workbook you will need to complete.
• A list of October transactions
• A Chart of Accounts reference sheet
• A Grading Rubric to help explain what is expected.
• Each worksheet has the Check Figures embedded as a comment.
Scenario
You’ve just secured a new client in your accounting practice, the Rawls Repair Corporation (RRC), a brand new small business specializing in bicycle repair. The owner, Rob Rawls, is a terrific cyclist and bike repair specialist, but definitely not an accountant. Your job is to help Rob put his affairs in order. Luckily Rob has only been in operation for a month and things have not gotten too out of hand yet! Rob has to submit his financial statements to his investors and doesn’t know where to begin. It’s your job to go through the complete Accounting cycle to prepare the financial statements for the RRC.
Guidelines
Use the embedded assistance in the template, guidance in your textbook, and examples in the weekly lectures to complete this project.  Should you have any questions contact your professor.
During its first month of operation, the Rawls Repair Corporation, which specializes in bicycle repairs, completed the following transactions.
Use the following account descriptions for journal entries.

REQUIREMENT #1: Prepare journal entries to record the October transactions in the General Journal below. Remember that Debits must equal Credits—All of your Journal Entries should balance.
REQUIREMENT #2: Post the October journal entries to the following T-Accounts and compute ending balances.
REQUIREMENT #3: Prepare a trial balance for October in the space below.
Requirement #4: Prepare adjusting entries using the following information in the General Journal below. Show your calculations!

Complete problems 9.3, 9.13, 9.14, 9.25, 9.48, and 9.55 in the textbook. Submit one Excel file. Put each problem result on a separate sheet in your file. You are not required to submit this assignment to Turnitin 9.3 If you use a 0.10 level of significance in a two tail hypothesis test, what is your decision rule for rejecting a
null hypothesis that the population mean is 500 if you use the Z test?
9.13 Do students at your school study more than, less
than, or about the same as students at other business schools? BusinessWeek reported that at the top 50 business schools, students studied an average of 14.6 hours per week. (Data extracted from “Cracking the Books,” Special Report/Online Extra, www.businessweek.com, March 19, 2007.) Set up a hypothesis test to try to prove that the mean number of hours studied at your school is different
from the 14.6 hour per week benchmark reported by Business Week.
a. State the null and alternative hypotheses.
b. What is a Type I error for your test?
c. What is a Type II error for your test?
9.14 The quality-control manager at a light bulb factory needs to determine whether the mean life of a large shipment of light bulbs is equal to 375 hours. The population standard deviation is 100 hours. A random sample of 64 light bulbs indicates a sample mean life of 350 hours.
a. At the 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence that the mean life is different from 375 hours?
b. Compute the p-value and interpret its meaning.
c. Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean life of the light bulbs.
d. Compare the results of (a) and (c). What conclusions do you reach?
9.25 A manufacturer of chocolate candies uses machines to package candies as they move along a filling line. Although the packages are labeled as 8 ounces, the company wants the packages to contain a mean of 8.17 ounces so that virtually none of the packages contain less than 8 ounces. A sample of 50 packages is selected periodically, and the packaging process is stopped if there is evidence that the mean amount packaged is different from 8.17 ounces. Suppose that in a particular sample of 50 packages, the mean amount dispensed is 8.159 ounces, with a sample standard
deviation of 0.051 ounce.
a. Is there evidence that the population mean amount is
different from 8.17 ounces? (Use a 0.05 level of significance.)
b. Determine the p-value and interpret its meaning.
9.48 Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, New York, commonly conducts stress tests to study the heart muscle after a person has a heart attack. Members of the diagnostic imaging department conducted a quality improvement project with the objective of reducing the turnaround time for
stress tests. Turnaround time is defined as the time from when a test is ordered to when the radiologist signs off on the test results. Initially, the mean turnaround time for a stress test was 68 hours. After incorporating changes into the stress test process, the quality improvement team collected a sample of 50 turnaround times. In this sample, the mean turnaround time was 32 hours, with a standard deviation of 9 hours. (Data extracted from E. Godin, D. Raven, C. Sweetapple, and F. R. Del Guidice, “Faster Test Results,” Quality Progress, January 2004, 37(1), pp. 33–39.)
a. If you test the null hypothesis at the 0.01 level of significance, is there evidence that the new process has reduced
turnaround time?
b. Interpret the meaning of the p-value in this problem.
9.55 The U.S. Department of Education reports that 46% of full time college students are employed while attending college. (Data extracted from “The Condition of Education 2009,” National Center for Education Statistics, nces.ed.gov.) A recent survey of 60 full-time students at Miami University found that 29 were employed.
a. Use the five-step p-value approach to hypothesis testing and a 0.05 level of significance to determine whether the proportion of full-time students at Miami University is different from the national norm of 0.46.
b. Assume that the study found that 36 of the 60 full time students were employed and repeat (a). Are the conclusions the same?

For this benchmark, create an in-depth, 15-20 slide PowerPoint presentation to inform other teachers in your school district of the benefits of using the SIOP Model as a teaching framework. This presentation should elaborate on the empirical research that shows the benefits of the SIOP framework when used with general education students as well as with ELLs. Your presentation should include: A title slide A brief description of socioeconomic, political, ethical, and legal influences on instruction for ELLs. At least one brief video showing SIOP strategies being used with students (any grade level or subject area). The eight interrelated components of the SIOP model and their application with teaching examples for each component. The eight SIOP components are as follows: Lesson Preparation Building Background Comprehensible Input Strategies Interaction Practice and Application Lesson Delivery Review and Assessment Include presenter’s notes, in-text citations, and a reference slide that contains three to five sources from the required readings or the GCU Library. In your explanation of the eight SIOP components, include considerations about meeting ELL needs, such as access to academic classes, appropriate resources, and instructional technology. While GCU style format is required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected. For all assignment delivery options, documentation of sources should be presented using GCU formatting guidelines, which can be found in the GCU Style Guide, located in the StudentSuccessCenter. This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion. You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Submit this assignment to your instructor in LoudCloud. You will also submit this assignment to Taskstream along with your Practicum/Field Experience Observation and Activity Log signed by the appropriate classroom teacher or interviewee at each location that you visit.
