2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
he made the class and information taught very exciting and interesting with the examples given to better explain the accounting information
I learned a huge wealth of knowledge regarding Accounting and deeper parts of what I learned in previous classes, which also was a huge help. I am thinking of starting my own business so having knowledge of Accounting is essential in me knowing where my businesses' money is going to and coming from.
Gave me a better understanding of accounting
as a business major this course gave a good solid background of the business environment.
this course help me to better understand the accounting principals. it helped me relate concepts to real life.
Everything I had hoped to learn and more.
This class and professor is very great! I took this class as a requirement. I feel like I've learned a lot of new accounting terms and this class helped me a lot by retaining past accounting terms/lessons.
Personally i thought this class was great. Not only did he make it simple to understand but he did so by using real life situations.
Taught me different aspects of accounting that will be important in business.
It was very good fundamental course
This class has strongly fufilled my course requirements as my concentration and major and it enhanced my personal/professional development by learning how to do some accounting formulas and also helped me to understand the basics of accounting.
It helped. Everything was laid out in a clear manner, the homework was relevant, and the classwork focused on both conceptual and practical aspects of accounting.
This course has helped me to better understand the concepts of accounting principles and methods of solving accounting problems. Iâ??m glad that it was a requirement; otherwise I probably wouldnâ??t have taken it. I usually do poorly in classes like this one, but Dr. Kudo made learning easy, interesting and fun.
I actually understand Accounting now!
This course has provided me with the basics of accounting and the general methods I need to know for future use. I believe this course has provided me with enough material to enhance my personal/professional development.
It has taught me crucial principles and information necessary for me to finish my accounting degree. Although overwhelming at first, I feel well prepared as I continue on with accounting.
general more in depth understanding of accounting systems
Professor Kudo uses many examples from his personal experiences as an accountant to show the relevance of the material he is teaching and how it applies to us as business students.
Enhances and expands basic knowledge gained from 201 and 202 course.
I appreciate how each chapter was broken into two class periods, one being conceptual and the other being problematic.
He taught me in detail of intermediate accounting that can help me in my career path.
Professor Kudo employed his personal experiences to explain the accounting theories that are discussed in this course. He provided us with real-life knowledge regarding the accounting career.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
I feel when it comes to accounting you need more hands on examples to really understand the information. HE provided many examples and problems but i feel it should be more.
Nothing.
i felt this course was well planned and i learned a great deal, i really wouldnt change a thing.
make quizzes easier!
Maybe additional web problems? Not a huge factor though.
More group work to help to understand theory.
It is fine now
I have no activities to add for this course to improve my learing.
While the material was covered in class, more detailed feedback on the homework handed back would have been nice- I'm more of a reading learner, so I would have understood my mistakes better if they'd been red inked on the homework.
None needed whatsoever
Nothing, I believe Dr. Kudo did a great job using lecture notes, power-point slides, class problems, homework problems, quizzes, study guides, study review sessions, etc. All of these resources and activities has contributed to help me understand the material more effectively.
Utilizing a tutor would be a great resource for this course because it was easy to fall behind.
no other activities needed
None.
More group activities that are not timed could have helped me better learn. Learning from peers helps me alot. There are two group activities that we do in this course, but it is timed and rushed which doesn't help me learn.
more group assignments

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Kudo is naturally a fast talker. I really don't even think he is aware of just how fast he speaks. I guess the one thing i would change is for him to just slow down a little.
Nothing.
i have no suggestion for mr kudo, i found his class to be hard but effective. he always did his best to incorporate real life in to the concepts and had great motivational tactics.
Excellent teaching style. No improvements are needed.
I thought the study guides for the exam was great but i would love to see practice exams given throughout the course of the semester. Something not graded but just used to see how well you actually know the material, not just the chapter we were on but the overall course.
Go slower so people can get a better grasp of the concepts.
Please speak little bit slower
There are no suggestions to improve the course or Franklin Kudo's teaching style or method.
Again, the one quibble I have is wanting more detailed feedback on the homework.
Dr. Kudo is a systematic and well organized professor; his style of teaching is superb. He is more than thorough with his lectures, assigning homework, group activities, and extra credit exercises. There is no need for additional resources for this course, as his schedule of coursework is sufficient.
I think there is no need for improvement. Dr. Kudo is a great teacher and his teaching style is very on point. The only thing about this course is the text book that is required. The book is TOO BIG! It makes it very intimidating for a student and especially when a student has to read about 40-50 pages of accounting.
Probably not possible, but a lighter textbook would be nice.
none
None.
Franklin Kudo goes through material really fast during lectures. When going over problems as a class on the board, he answers most of the questions and moves on fast. It's hard to follow and take notes. His handwriting is also too small to read sometimes.
everything was ok.
I don't think I can suggest anything that this professor hasn't already done.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
I love his class
Great teacher, very knowledgeable and a good person overall.
my over all evaluation of mr. kudo is hes a great teacher and i hope to have him again for busa 313. he class is hard and he challenges us but i find i learned the most that way. I never worked so hard in a class before and got so much from a class either. his methods are effected and i hope to have him again.
good teacher
Would recommend to future students if asked.
Dr. Kudo is one of the best professors here at UHWO. He really helps out the students and makes sure we understand. He is good at explaining things also.
He knows a lot about his subject. He's up to current events in the industry and is very knowledgeable in his field.
A good teacher that is passionate about teaching. He is very knowledgeable about accounting.
excellent
Professor Kudo is an amazing accounting teacher. I must say that I have learned a lot from him and I understood Accounting much clearer. My last two accounting classes I had before him, i didnt quite understand and i didnt learn anything.
Excellent. He explains things clearly, gives practical examples, uses the book but doesn't rely on it, and is always available for questions. I've had a very positive experience with UH's Accounting instructors in general, and he continued it.
Franklin Kudo is by far, the best professor that I have ever had :) and I have had more than my share of not so good ones :( Dr Kudoâ??s passion is clearly evident with his knowledge in his field of expertise, as well as, his â??always upbeatâ?? attitude. He has an amazing ability to motivate his students into learning and participating. In fact, absenteeism in this class is a rare occurrence. How he manages to run his own business, teach classes, and volunteer his time for the FAFSA program is besides me. What more can I say? The man is phenomenal.
Dr. Kudo is an outstanding teacher and he is one of the best accounting teachers I ever had. I learned a great amount during this course and he used great examples where I can relate it to my job and to my future job in business.
My favorite professor so far!
A+
I have so much respect for Professor Kudo. Any student can see how much effort he has put into his lectures, homework assignments, and class problems.
Professor Kudo is a great teacher and keep the class fun, exciting, and involved.
I enjoyed his class. He is a very energetic instructor and shows his enthusiasm with the class. Needs to work on working slower with the class because I'm sure I wasn't the only one who couldnt follow quickly.
great teacher and cares about his students.
he is a really competent professor. He's experienced in the field and his experience enhanced the theoretical knowledge that were taught in class.

Great.
this course is the best i have had so far.
this course was challenging but i learned the most the course material is relevant to the accounting profession and everyday life.
good course, I enjoyed it overall
Excellent
This course even though it was diffcult for me was a very good class. Dr. Kudo did a great job. I learned new things and was surprised that I understood some things.
To be honest this was the first account class i took that made it actually interesting. It made it so much that it made me rethink about my major.
A hard course, but if you are diligent then you will learn a lot.
Best accounting instructor i've came acress! Very effective teaching style!
excellent
My overall evaluation of this course is that this class was worth going to and I understand accounting much better. I would grade this course a 9.5 out of 10. (10 being the highest)
Positive. I learned a lot, and the transition from the more basic principles covered in beginning accounting to the more nuanced versions here was handled very well.
I highly recommend this course with Franklin Kudo to students planning a career in business, accounting, or just to develop themselves; both personally and professionally.
Professor Kudo is an amazing teacher. I have nothing bad to say about him or his teaching methods. I never really understood accounting in general until I had Professor Kudo.
I would highly recommend other students to take this accounting course from Dr. Kudo!
Good course. I feel prepared for future accounting classes.
A
UHWO is so fortunate to have Professor Kudo teach the BUSA 312 and 313 classes. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about helping his students achieve their goals, and I look forward to learning as much as I can from him.
Great course.
it needs to be more effective by doing more problems as a class.
Great class to take.
Not easy, not very hard. This is a great foundation for other challenging accounting courses.

Thank you for a wonderful semester!
Fun class to be a part of.
I really enjoyed the group work, if possible, you should try to do more of these activities in the future.
Thank you very much I enjoyed this course

I would recommend this teacher to any student pursuing an accounting major.
Excellent teaching...
I especially like the review session style for the midterm and final.

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
I've learned more than I could possibly imagine. The course itself is hard to digest, but Kudo helps break it down into smaller bites.
This course had a lot of information that pertains to my concentration. It helped further my knowledge in accounting practices and procedures.
it gave me a good understanding of accounting. Even though the material is hard Franklin Kudo knew a lot about his material
He made it easy to understand the concepts through several types of lectures (powerpoint, lecture, practice problems, notes). He gave an in-depth analysis of our accounting problems.
Professor Kudo helps the class apply the terms and techniques to real-life accounting situations by bringing real examples to class. He also uses companies that we are familiar with such as Google or Hawaiian Airlines. By applying everything that we learn in class to the business world around us I am able to gain full understanding of the course material.
This course has taught me valuable concepts and principles in the area of accounting.
This course developed the concepts/principles and generally accepted practices in the accounting field.
It was a difficult course but I think I passed it. This was a needed course and Professor Kudo helped us a lot. It was never boring.
This course was taken to fulfill one of my Accounting Concentration section and it has helped me enhance my personal and professional development by learning a little bit more of Statement of Cash Flows and different types of journal entries. Since I want to become an accountant, this BUSA 313 class is a continuation of BUSA 313.
More in depth from BUSA 312, i.e. cash flow statements, long term liabilities, etc.
It gave me a more indepth understanding about my concentration for my major.
It enhanced my personal and professional development because now I am able to read different "accounting" term that I was never able to do so now.
This course helped me be able to prepare and evaluate financial statements a lot better.
Greatly enhanced.
I feel ready for your career and help me realize the skills needed to become an accountant. I realize the challenges that are to come in the future.

Nothing.
My only suggestion is for online interactive homework.
None
The access to different types of resources (PowerPoint, chapter notes, and homework answers) was extremely helpful.
None.
There is a lot of information covered - My only comment is that I feel too much is presented in one class. I would really like to have the time to thoroughly go over some of the material a little more.
I don't think that any other activities or resources should be added because Professor Kudo tries his best to incorporate visual learning with Power Point Slides as well as real life examples. He also use the whiteboard and actually goes over any difficult problem that we may encounter. Basically, his teachings are superior especially since Accounting is a concentration with level of difficulty.
-Let students decide who can be in mid-term & final exam teams instead of being it based on students grades. More team work. - -
none
He provided a lot of resources to help me understand everything happening in class.
Maybe more group work during the chapters and not only during the exam review sessions.
In class exercises were fantastic.
I think Statement of Cash flow or direct or indirect method. It's better to have real life examples of accounting for student to understand and able to solve it.

N/A
None.
As I said a little before this I would like to have more time to learn some of the material for this class. I have nothing to suggest for Professor Kudo. He is a superior teacher.
There is no need for Professor Kudo to improve on his teaching styles, for his teaching styles are not needed to be adjusted. He has an ideal teaching style and his methods of learning could never been better. The way he has 2 different review sessions before the final exam was a great way to learn and prepare for the finals as a group.
-Speaks more slowly during lectures. -Have more student interaction in groups for all the chapters. -Lots of material to cover during midterm & final exams--please let students use lecture notes besides the 5x8. For the final exam, let students use another 5x8 or something because the practical part is worth more points than the multiple choice part.
none
He may talk fast at some times but overall his teaching style and method is effective.
No improvement necessary, this class is wonderful
There is nothing that should be changed or improved on Kudo's teaching style and method.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
a good teacher
He is an excellent teacher. He really cared that we understood the concepts and didn't just memorize the material. He listened and made sure to address all questions that we had. I found it very easy to communicate with him, and he responded quickly when I had any issues or illnesses.
He is a good teacher and makes the class fun and not boring.
Great course, wish I took all my accounting courses from this instructor
Professor Kudo is one of my favorite teachers at the university. He truely cares about his students and that they are able to understand the difficult accounting material. He also forms the class so that if you put in a good amount of effort to pass the course, you will. For myself I am not very good at accounting but through the homework assignments, quizzes and extra credit I am able to understand material and pass the course.
Very informative in the subject area and is always willing to assists students who need help in learning core concepts. Lectures were clear and understandable.
Excellent teacher that provides a strong base for future learning.
Outstanding!!!
Franklin Kudo not only have a superior teaching style, but he also knows how to explain each topics in a way that is easier to understand.
Knows area very well.
great
He is a great professor. He is up beat and involves everyone in class. He gives us problems in class and we do them together and the lecture notes as well as powerpoints really helped.
He is a very good professor who cares a lot about his students and wants everyone to succeed in his class.
Pretty awesome. I dig Kudo as a nurturer of minds
Superior!!!
Overall I think kudo was the best instructor.
Great teacher, always going the extra effort to help his students.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
hard
I would recommend this professor and class to all accounting majors/concentrations. Professor Kudo presented the information in an enjoyable way.
Accounting takes a lot of time but I learned a lot.
Very Intense course, would like more class days to learn the material thoroughly
I would strongly suggest to other students to take Professor Kudo's accounting courses. I have taken two of his classes and enjoyed the sturcture and teaching styles of Professor Kudo. He makes accounting barable for the non-accounting majors.
Challenging, yet informative course. Will definitely use concepts and principles in future career endeavors.
A difficult subject matter to master, however, made easier with the right teacher.
On a scale of one to 10 with 10 being the highest I would rate it about 7. Just way too many unfamiliar concepts for the time frame of the class.
Although accounting is supposed to be a difficult subject, this course wasn't as bad because it seems pretty easier than the prerequisite of BUSA 313. I guess it depends on who teaches it and once again, I would recommend anyone to take his class in the nearer future.
Very good.
great
This is course was very difficult, but Dr. Kudo always went through every step and always cared on whether or not we got it or not and never went forward until we all understood.
This course was very useful and I would encourage others to take this class. And to take this class from Professor Kudo.
Not as hard as he makes it out to be. I am a hard worker and it is not much different from BUSA 312... stop scaring students Mr. Kudo :) The hard workers will persevere. The lazy students on the other hand, probably will find it hard.
Can't wait for the pain to come
Difficult and rewarding.
i think this course is great because of kudo's organization of the materials and is always on time to class.

So far I have been enjoying my schooling at West Oahu and am looking forward to attending at the new campus.
I would really like to thank Professor Kudo for teaching Accounting in a way that I could understand. I've taken several Accounting classes and as I compare him to past professors, I can say that he have made Accounting seem more clearer than ever before.

I will recommend to my friend.

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
It gave me an experience as to what to expect in the outside world
This course has opened my understanding of an information process system, and about defining moments. I also have gained more work experience through my internship.
This course enabled me to earn and get an on-hands work experience. I also learned how to correctly evaluate and develop a work process plan.
It thought me how to transition out of college and it prepared me for the real world.
This course gave me invaluable experience in the work field of accounting that I may continue to apply upon entering the work force. Additionally, I have gained insight on ethics' and morals that I will help me both professionally and personally.
This course provided an excellent means of combining educational knowledge with real life experience. Too often students go through college with high grades and confidence only to discover that work is an entirely different world. Having a course that pushes students to gain experience in the work environment is very beneficial and highly recommended.
It allowed me to examine the practical use of business processes. The flexibility of the practicum site (which is my current place of employment) allowed me to study in-house issues and help employ new techniques.
It allowed me to put in practice a lot of what I learned in various different courses.
Its a great opportunity for people to get hands-on, real world experience that relates to the things theyve been learning. I think this class is excellent for that reason.
We learned about processes. An accountant needs to be able to have a process that flows smoothly. Learning how to analyze the different steps will help me evaluate when I get my own full-time job. This will hopefully help me become more effective in the job environment. The fact that I was also able to get real working experience out in the field will be able to help me succeed in the future.
this class really offered me great insight into the "real world" and business. I loved the readings we had assigned. It really help me get a better perspective of life, and developing myself and sticking to my personal values, and building a strong work ethic

I believe it would be very beneficial to the students if they were briefed and/or shown videos on sexual harassment, workplace conduct, etc. These are typical areas are often covered by large agencies such as the government. Having this extra knowledge would help prepare students for their internships. Many times students are given jobs or internships that do not include such training. Having this training would not only give them exposure to these sensitive issues but would also protect the school in case there was a lawsuit involving a student and such issues.
Dr. Kudo does an excellent job in this course.

Professor Kudo is an awesome professor. He takes the time to answer any questions I have, and I learn a lot from him during class lectures.
Dr. Kudo would receive an "A+" grade from me.
Professor Kudo is a great professor and he has taught me well throughout my college career at West Oahu!
that he is very passionate about the success of his students both in education and life aspirations. Dr. Kudo goes above and beyond his responsibility as a professor and continues to give back to his students.
Dr. Kudo is an excellent professor. He is able to communicate a great deal of detailed and technical information in a manner that is comprehensible and meaningful to the student. In addition, he is very organized and is always prepared for class. Furthermore, in spite of his vast knowledge and experience, he does talk down to you or make you feel incompetent if you do not understand the material. These are some of the reasons I wanted to complete my capstone course with Dr. Kudo. I greatly appreciate his knowledge and skills but also respect the professor as an individual. Thank you Dr. Kudo! Ches Calma
A fantastic educator and strong leader.
Dr. Kudo is an excellent professor and any student is lucky to take a class from him. He genuinely cares about all his students and is more than fair with all of them.
Excellent teacher
he is very passionate about his work and the learning of his students. He always asks if we are learning at our internships and if there is any problems that are happening. He wants his students to get the most out of this class using problem-solving skills instead of going to work. He gets us to observe the process and this will give us the ability to do so in the future.
Professor Kudo is a very good teacher, he knows his subject very well and also knows a lot and gives very good insight and examples. I woud definately reccomend him to any student. You can learn a whole lot from Kudo.
he is the best professor I have ever had. He relates everything he teaches to real life experiences. He encourages his students to become the best person we can be.
Professor Kudo is an awesome professor and faculty advisor. His leadership skills and professionalism reflects as a professor in his classes, his teachings, and as a leader and advisor for the Accounting Club and other service activities in Accounting. He's a very well rounded inspirational professor.

great
This is a great course. It is a much needed course for students who are graduating and heading out into the work field.
This course would also get an "A+" grade from me. It was pretty much straight forward and no hidden tricks. I enjoyed it.
This course gave me the experience and confidence needed to seek higher level and more challenging tasks. It has allowed me to expose skills that I did not realize I had developed. In addition, it has pushed me to utilize the knowledge gained from my college education to develop new skills.
It is an excellent course if you are able to get a good internship position to expose you to the different aspects of the field of accounting.
this class is very helpful for students who want hands on work in the field of accounting. These lessons can be kept and applied in the future.
Very well organized course and materials. I've gained valuable experience through my internship assignment of process improvements.

Dr. Kudo is an Awesome individual from what I can see, and from what my fellow classmates have conveyed.
Thank you West Oahu for being the best university that I have ever attended. I have gone to school on four campuses on Oahu and find West Oahu to be comfortable, knowledgeable, and comprehensible. I have heard horror stories about mean professors at other campuses that make you look bad in front of other students. I have experienced professors that teach at such a complicated level that most student found them difficult to understand. However, at West Oahu, I have been fortunate to have professors that were very intelligent, highly experienced, and also possess excellent teaching skills. I will definitely recommend this school to anyone seeking higher education.
I would recommend any of Dr. Kudo classes to the students. UHWO is lucky to have him teaching the students at there campus.

Learn about different sections of financial statements.
With my major this course will help me understand the day-to-day accounting practices that go on in business. It has also deepened my understanding of how businesses are financed and account for different types of gains, losses and such.
I learned more of accounting than I have in ACC201 and ACC202.
Learning the value of understanding financial statements.
I felt Mr. Kudo was a great teacher in all aspect of class, and his expert experience in running his own business has really help make the material relevant
Professor Kudo was able to apply the concepts that we were learning in class to events that we would most likely experience in the workforce. This helped me to fully understand the subject manner and do well in the course.
Greatly. The material itself is spot on
This course prepares me to become a qualified accountant.
This is requirements for accounting major. I learned a lot of credit or debit and cash flow...I will be ready for a real job.
It has enhanced my personal and development because I am a Accounting major and he was able to give us examples during class and how to do them.
It allowed me to get a better understanding of of how to manage assets and liabilities while running a business.
Helped me understand accounting from a professional who is in the field and deeply understands it
This course has taught me how important accounting practices are to the workings of a business.
Financial accounting taught me how different accounting principles like lifo and fifo give you different net income.

Midterm/Final exam prep in groups during the classes--played game. Team with the most points get steak dinners and others get Starbucks gift cards. Homework points are not based on how much questions/exercises/problems are correct, it's based how much time it took for student(s) to complete. Get to do class problems in class.
This course was great. He writes small on the board but I don't wear my contacts. Hopefully the school supports whatever initiatives he has in teaching since he is so effective.
Very interactive.

I think the class is full of creativity and pretty functional. although the homework should provide all the templates to do assignments.
I think that Professor Kudo is an excellent professor. He really goes out of his way to help his students understand the difficult material that we needed to learn.
More time. tons of material packed into to class days. Really hard to get the most out of it
Dr.Kudo does his great job above average!
He was pretty organized and gave a lot of examples during class and doing them together.

I have no comments to improve Professor Kudo's teaching style or methods. He does an excellent job. I just felt there was an awful lot of material to cover in just one semester. I will be taking Accounting 313 with Professor Kudo. Given his ability and style of teaching - I feel I will be able to get through the class even though I expect it to be very difficult.

great job
We had to go over the material a little quick. Although I do understand a majority of it and feel that I will do well in the course. I feel that on the more difficult chapters, if there was some way to spend maybe an extra day on the chapter to clear up all misunderstandings that would be appreciated.
Nice guy. Great teaching style. Helps break down subject
My suggestions for improving the course need to know how to solve problem. Do the problem a lot of time. Try to understand how to get the answer and concept. For Kudo's teaching style no change stay the same methods as now.
I honestly don't have anything. I thought he did a good job teaching us.

His course is the most organized. Also I really appreciated everything that he did to go out of his way and help us understand the material. He really cares about his students and that encourages us to want to do well in his course. I hope to take more classes by Professor Kudo.

Well overall evaluation is i really like it, Enjoyed having you as instructor.
He is a good teacher. Very accomodating and has a great knowledge of his material and knows his course.
Although i had a difficult time in this class, I thought Dr. Kudo did a great job in explaining the concepts if accounting and its real world applications. He is actually one of the best teachers I've had at West Oahu so far. He makes class interesting and seems to have a real passion for accounting. I am very satisfied with Dr. Kudo's class.
Awesome professor. Great teacher and he really motivates you. I'm a marketing major and Dr. Kudo made accounting fun and made coming to class a must.
It's rare to never that you find a person accomplished as Dr. Kudo is to possess such characteristic that he vectors. He is fair, kind, genuine, inspirational, and legendary to say the least. I hope one day to be in the position to repay the honors he has exhibited.

its accounting...
This course is very well thought out. He has a student accounting tutor available to meet with you if you have any questions. He also has various tools on Laulima to help you fully grasp the concepts, such as the chapter outlines, PowerPoint slides, class questions and answers. I also appreciated his steak and beans contest. It really helped me to prepare for the exams in this course.

I really enjoyed his class and learned a lot. Accounting is a very difficult subject, but with all this handouts and homework it really helped make this course easier to handle.
A good course, but sometimes i wonder if ill use some of the concepts taught in real world situations.
Challenging but useful
Like camping, it's in-tense!!!
GREAT COURSE. I never thought I would have enjoyed accounting this much

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
It made me understand why I would need it for my major.
Interesting course, learned a lot of information about accounting.
I think much more analytically and objectively after taking this course.
This course actually made me change my mind and want to change my major to accounting. Professor Kudo explains the course material extremely well and always helps those that are having trouble. This course helped me to realize that I am capable of doing accounting even though it can be very difficult.
I did learn quite a lot and he was very patient and clear on his lectures.
This course helped me understand the requirements of accounting.
It gave me a broader understanding of the course
This course is pretty much a continuation of Busa 312 allowing us to go more in-depth with we we learned in 312 as well as Acc 201. I understand a bit more of the material covered in previous classes.
this course helped me to better understand financial statments used in the industry
This is an accounting class and I think what I learned in this has helped me fulfill the requirements to take the next step and intake all the necessary information to use in the work force.
This course has provided me a solid foundation into the financial accounting field. We have learned about many concepts and principles that guide accountants. Much of what we have learned will help us succeed in various sections of the CPA exam.
This class was hard and covered a lot of materials. I had to work very hard to even to catch up the class.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
There was enough resources already.
Course resources are already extremely effective.
I actually really enjoyed doing the exam prep team game challenge. I realize that time is pretty limited but maybe a couple more of those when doing problems in the chapter would make it more hands on and allows the students to do the problems on their own.
The online Wiley component, Wiley is by far the best tool for reinforcing concepts taught in the classroom. Also, the book has a study guide and problem-solving survival guide that most students are not aware of, students should be made aware of what ever resources they are so they can get whatever extra help is needed for them to be successful.
Franklin Kudo is very good at covering all the requirements needed to understand the material needed for this course.
nothing really
I loved how he did a lot of examples. It really helped the learning process and gave me a better grasp of how concepts worked instead of just learning them out of a book.
Maybe another section? The book is so thick it should be taught in three sections instead os two.
better a/c
More class work with the class would be nice and we should can go up in class and do some problems as a team so that we can learn how to work in groups better!
I cannot think of any.

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
No need to improve course
No suggestions because Mr. Kudo already set very effective methods to teach this difficult course.
None that I can think of. Course style is already effective.
You might want to see if you can clone him.
Dr Kudo's is an excellent instructor and has an excellent teaching style.
nothing
More group work. The review sessions/competitions are a great!
bigger chalk board
Professor Kudo is one of the best teachers that have ever taught me. He teaches really well and he makes sure that his students understand the material to the fullest and making sure that his students do well in the quizzes and exams.
I would like him to explain the concept more because that he quizzes us.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great
He is perfect for this course. He is very organized and always ready to help students. He makes this difficult class easy to follow. Thank you very much, Mr. Kudo!!!
Great professor, has a lot of information to share and is very helpful.
great professor. really cares about the best interest of his students. makes learning about accounting much easier and in a fun way.
Always available to help students and takes the time to go more into detail about tough topics. I wish he taught more courses that I can take from him.
He is my favorite professor by far through my college experience. I had him in both BUSA 312 and 313 and I wold take him with other courses if given the opportunity.
He is a great teacher. Helped me understand the concept and it's actual meaning. He gets us ready for the real accounting world.
Yup he needs to be cloned, he is intelligent, energetic, entertaining, passionate about the subject and at the same time down to earth, approachable and geniuely caring. Oh and I like that he is a life learner. As intelligent as he is, and as educated as he is, he convey's the idea that he has so much more to learn and is not only open to learning more but eager to learning more.
Dr Kudo's is an excellent instructor who cares about his students. I would give him an A+ as an overall evaluation.
Excellent
GREAT GREAT Professor! Really helpful and personable! He made class enjoyable and was always available if we needed help. Definitely would recommend his class to everyone!
He is a very helpful teacher. Easy to talk to and down to earth.
A+ Can you maybe teach a section of advanced accounting too?
Mr. Kudo is a very good accounting instructor.
THE BOMB!
that he is very knowledgeable in the subject matter and provides experience into the accounting profession. Additionally, Dr. Kudo cares greatly not only about the achievements of his students in class but also the their future success and aspirations. It is rare to come across a Professor that cares so much and devotes so much time, effort, and support for their students.
very good.

This is not an easy class, even the homework, but it is very important in order to understand accounting systems.
Very difficult, but very informative.
great course. very beneficial
While the course topics themselves are difficult, Professor Kudo made it much easier to understand. If I were to take this course online I would not have been able to understand even half of what I learned from Professor Kudo.
This course is very difficult but if the effort is put forth it is very doable.
This class is a required class for accounting majors but it's interesting enough to feel like like an elective.
This course helps you acquire the understanding of the accounting field.
Excellent
Great class! Helped me prepare for the real world!
It was very difficult for me. Accounting isn't my strongest subject, but I am determined to pass this course!
This was a great course.
I thought that this was a very challenging course.
This course was pretty good for me. I learned a lot and I want to thank Professor Kudo for that!
not to change a thing. Well, of course, adapt new concepts and principles but the course study/work is on point.
very good.
21. Other comments:
I would like to thank Dr. Kudo for his help and consideration during the most challenging semester I've had due to personal family problems and health issues. I came very close to throwing in the towel and giving up because I was just so overwhelmed. It was a learning experience to go into the Dr's office lay my situation on the table and ask for help. In the past I would have just stopped going to school, blame myself for being stupid and taken an F. Instead I learned how to recess my situation, be more forgiving of myself, ask for help, and continue on until I am able to reach my goal. I look forward to coming back in the Fall and finishing up my incomplete for a grade that will more accurately reflect my ablility instead of a tragic occurance. Thank you!
West Oahu is very lucky to have Dr. Kudo teaching this class and every student who takes a class from Dr. Kudo is lucky to have him as a teacher.
Good instructor

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
This is one of the best class I have ever taken at UHWO. It gives me hand on experience and enable me see how the real world of accounting operates.
Dr. Kudo provided knowledge and taught me different subjects such as ethics that is rarely taught in any other class.
this course provided me an opportunity to apply theory i learned from classroom in the real workplace, and to use an analytical skills when working with business processes of information.
This course allowed me to put my knowledge and skills to use.
It taught me to analyze the work that I am doing and helped me look at an overall picture.
This course defined and explored the topic of ethics in management and everyday life. This course has helped enhance my personal and professional development in my major and concentration by showing case scenarios and examples of ethics in management that we as future managers/leaders/business owners are/will be faced with. This class not only showed what kinds of scenarios we could face, but it equipped me with the tools to better handle myself in these situations. This class has given me confidence and a better understanding of the human dynamic in the workplace, at school and even at home.
i understood my major even further through the actual practice of accounting and the readings provided by professor Kudo
I learned more about accounting in the field and were able to use what i learned in class at the internship
It gave me a better perspective of what to expect in the future as I enter the field of business.
The books chosen for this course were great tools for the workplace.

nothing
I would have preferred a couple more class sessions.
I enjoyed his lectures as they were informative, coming from an experienced business person. He included material that was useful. He is also encouraging. I thought class times were rather rushed and short. I do understand it is difficult for students to "attend" a night class but the lectures felt abrupt.
None. The style and methods that Dr. Kudo uses are effective and promotes learning and success.

25. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great, I'm glad to have him for this class.
that he is very knowledgable in what he knows about accounting and business and by the way he teaches you can tell how passionate he is about his career and the way he teaches.
Frank Kudo is a great teacher. He cares for all his students and helps them in anyway possible. I would recommend all students to take classes from him.
His teaching style is excellent and relevant to topic. he always used a current and relevant topic content as example that students can easily relate to and learn from it. He always is easy to meet and discuss with if we (student) we have any questions or concerns.
He is an excellent instructor, I have learned many valuable skills and techniques from him.
Great!
Dr. Kudo was very informative and passionate about the content that he taught. He was encouraging and gave constructive criticism when returning graded work. The class was organized well and conducted in a professional and engaging manner. Dr. Kudo is an excellent asset to the UH-West O'ahu.
Excellence
very nice and easy to talk to. He answered all emails within 24 hrs. highly reccommended!
Dr Kudo is an excellent teacher and I would highly recommend him to other students.

that it is a great course and I would definitely recommend anyone to take the class especially with Dr. Kudo.
This is a great course that preps students for the real world.
This course helped me learn more outside classroom. it helped me understand more the organization process of information system.
Great!
Great course taught by a great Professor.
10 out of 10
Very much needed to prepare for a career in the accounting field.
Great course. Great Professor. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Loved the internship opportunity that it gave students.
30. Other comments:
Thank you! I'm glad that this class was taught by Professor Kudo!
suggest to all students even if they are not accounting majors
Wish West Oahu had a web site internship for the students like Manoa has. It was hard as a student to look for a place to intern. It was hard calling up companies if they needed an accountant intern. Nobody wants to take a chance on an intern student who can have access to sensitive information. Also, the school should provide for a work placement for students after graduation
I'm a visual learner and the visuals he provides to help the students understand the material better is on point. He is one of the best at that if not the best.

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
helped me to better understand concepts and theories of accounting
Professor Kudo went into great detail on all the concepts covered in this intermediate accounting course.
I am concentrating in accounting and so this course was very helpful in reviewing concepts in accounting and also going over new ones for which I would definitely need in my future career.
This course has given me a deeper knowledge of accounting, allowing me to speak the "language of business". Although accounting is not my major, it's really important to be able to understand the financial statements to truly understand any business.
this course is not for my major.
This course is obviously a business requirement for a reason. It covers lots of accounting principles and concepts and explains the reasoning behind each. It gives students a little more detailed general foundation in accounting than ACC 201 and 202.
This class was instrumental to learning the necessary financial accounting concepts that will carry with me as I work towards my degree in Business Administration - Accounting so that I can become a CPA.
His lectures help me understand all the accounting terms, concepts, and problems. I learn more from his lectures than reading the book.
helped me learn the methods of accounting and why its important.
This course has broaden my knowledge in accounting. This class is a requirement that i need for my major and i have learned a lot from it.
taking this class has prepared me for the next part BUSA 313
I learned not only the information provided in the book but how to apply it to real life situations when Franklin Kudo brought in examples of real life companies.
This course has helped me gain a better understanding of the material required to do the work required in my professional field of study.
Mr. Kudo knows how to train his students to study intensively for this complicated class. I was able to understand the concepts in this class much easier.
i understand much more about accounting now
It help me better understand the financial side of a business. It can help me both personally and professionally.
This course is the foundation of my concentration into Accounting. Taking this course has helped me develop a profound understanding of the processes of computation of accounting and the conceptual side as well.
I believe this course has helped me greatly. The way Dr.Kudo teaches is great. He really shows that he wants to educate and want the students to succeed in his course. His approach to class on a daily basis is very professional, and he tends to make it as fun as possible for us. he is very knowledgeable with his work. Not only does he teach accounting, he teaches about life as well, and how to apply these accounting situation with our daily life.
He made it very easy for someone not interested in accounting, such as myself, to understand the concepts that were being taught.
It taught me more about the importance of knowing Basic Accounting methods.
Its was a bit more fast paced than what I'm used to but he did break in down so that the material wasn't too hard to follow. That and with the "Steak and Beans" competition he made us have to work with other people.
it gave me a better understanding on what i'll be tackling as an accounting major.
Help me understand more about how accounting is applied into the real world.
This course has given me a more detailed look into financial accounting. It has made me have to think more in order to get it, but I think it has helped me a lot in understanding the concepts of the course.
Professor Kudo really helped the class to understand the reason behind the different concepts of accounting! It made understanding the material covered in the text book a lot easier to understand.
It taught me a lot about accounting and have a better understanding and vocabulary because of it. I know it will definitely help me in the business industry.
General business, the class is very informative and Kudo is an excellent teacher.
Unlike other Accounting courses I've taken, this course actually taught me the methodology behind accounting practices and why things are done a certain way. Basic concepts that I should have had a firm understanding of from earlier courses, which I didn't, were made much clearer during this course.
It made me understand the conceptual ideas of accounting. Before this class I hated this subject because it was confusing, but he made it easy to understand and follow.
He taught (very thoroughly) the fundamentals of accounting.
it was the best accounting class i've taken so far...because he is a better teacher.

not sure
the exam prep activities are awesome, no improvement needed.
Possibly making homework due online, i.e. myAccounting Lab.
Doing the homework and reading the chapter over at least twice will help any student to succeed in this class.
No comment.
enjoyed the review sessions and class discussions which helped make the material easier to understand.
This class is such a good class that I don't recommend anymore activities. We do a lot of class problems and we have study days to study for the exam. Professor Kudo is on track.
I would highly recommend using Wiley, the whole book is online for much cheaper than the bookstore charges, Wiley is $60-80 and free w/a new book. Aside from having the book online Wiley has study tools, their homework section can be quirky but the study tools are awesome! I highly recommend looking into adding a Wiley component.
Everything is just perfect!!!
none. i really like the way he runs this course
The class work done every week with multiple problems helped a lot! As well as the homework.
He has handouts daily for us to take during the class. He hands it out and actually walks us through the process of the problems he assigns, so we will have a better understanding of it when we do it on our own at home. The daily routine is constant and never changes, which helps me as a student. I feel prepared for class everyday, and it makes homework a lot easier for me to do.
None that I can think of.
More group type activities.
more tutors maybe
N/A
I like this course as it is
There is nothing really to improve. It's a hard corse but I love the challenge he presented us with.
Professor Kudo already does more than enough to enhance learning, and he is extremely fair in his grading process
Homework assignments and quizzes provide a good way for us to learn accounting concepts as we are able to make mistakes and learn from them without negatively effecting our grades too much. I feel this makes us more prepared for exams, allowing us to perform better.
none, its perfect

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
not sure
Professor Kudo has a great style of teaching that is interesting and stimulating.
When reading off of the board, up close to the bosrd your handwriting is really neat and organized but from my seat it was a little small and hard to read at most times. Maybe writing a little bigger may be better. :)
no suggestions. was a very good professor.
I think the midterm consisted of many chapters. Maybe breaking down the course content so that the number of chapters are evenly distributed among the two exams. This might help students to focus better when thereʻs not as much material being covered on each test.
I think that the biggest improvement to the course would be for the professor to create his/her own quizzes as opposed to using the ones from the book/publisher because they are worded really badly and most students do not pass them.
No comment.
Well, let's see... how about a typed (Times 12pt font) study guide to exams outlining all exam questions with the proper answers one week before exams. Then, on exam day one 8 1/2 X 11 typed front and back cheat sheet notes made by the student. Not, just joking, or not:-)
I can not think of any thing or of any way Dr. Kudo needs to improve his teaching style and methods. Dr. Kudo was very through in how he taught the material in this course.
I love Mr. Kudo. I think that he should keep doing what he does now for his class.
great as is
Even though its not really possible considering the time constrant of school time....more time for each chapter to get a better understanding or after every 3 chapters an exam instead of a midterm and final..say 4 exams.
I don't see any changes are necessary at all for this course. His approach with his drawings are hilarious and great. His "steak and bean" does the trick for the class. Everyone gets so into it and involved, it's pretty ridiculous to say. He uses daily situation and applies it in front of us while teaching, which makes it a lot more easier for us to relate.
Teaching style and methods are good but sometimes and can't read your handwriting...
nothing really, he did the best he could
Write a little more clearly. Explain the conceptual material in more detail.
I like the course as is.
none
Wouldnt change anything, the quizzes are very challenging but you learn quite a bit.
I feel his style and method of teaching is already more than adequate to allow students to learn well.
I think more group work inside the class when we do the class problems. Or instead of just following how to do a problem, let us do a problem and then follow on how to do the problem and see if we got it correct. It will help us think on our own feet, instead of just following steps.
none
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Mr. Kudo is a good teacher, and i would recommend him to anyone who needs to take an accounting class.
I enjoyed going to class and I would take one of his classes again. I can also confidently recommend him to anyone else who may need his accounting classes.
Professor Kudo is one of the best teachers that I've had hear at UHWO. Accounting is a very difficult subject but the way his course is set up (one day of concepts, one day of problems, study sessions before exams, etc)made it easier to learn the chapters. He was very organized and clear on when due dates were and when study dates and exams were. He motivated us to study and meet outside of class and my group actually got together during spring break to go over the study guide.
very nice and friendly professor, def. someone you can ask questions to and he does not mind taking time to answer whatever question you have thoroughly.
He is a great teacher. He definitely knows his subject matter and teaches it very well.
Dr. Kudo is one of the best professors that I have ever had because he is charismatic and very knowledgeable about his field. When someone can demonstrate mastery of their profession and do it in a way that draws you to the material then they are definitely an allstar professor in my book.
He is a very good accounting instructor. I really enjoyed taking his class. He tried to make things easy as possible to understand.
Excellent and very high energy!
he's an awesome professor.
Franklin Kudo is very knowledgeable person and seems to know a lot of Accounting stuff.
great professor. Really knowledgeable and cares about his students. Tries his best to make the students grasp the material.
Professor Kudo is such a great teacher. He teaches the class very well and he loves to help his students. His teaching technique is flawless!
I really enjoyed this class, the teacher, he is very fair, cares about his students, highly intelligent, it's too bad there isn't more time for him to share his real life experiences but that's not his fault, I really enjoy listening to him talk and share his knowledge. Much mahalo and aloha to Dr. Kudo! UH WEST don't loss this teacher he's really good!!
He gave me a better understanding of BUSA312. The last time i took an accoungting class was back in 2007. I is an amazing teacher and i love his teaching style
He is an excellent teacher, I have learned more from him than any other teacher. I wish my other teachers could learn how to present material from him.
Dr. Kudo is an excellent professor. He is full of energy, he is very well organized, and he knows the material he is teaching. I felt blessed to have Dr. Kudo as my professor in such a difficult subject. Dr. Kudo inspires his students to do well in his class.
He is very organized, so it makes me easy to study this difficult class. He is a hard teacher, but he knows how to treat his students well. I am so fortunate to have had this teacher.
he is a great teacher with tons of real world experience and examples.
He is a great professor. He take the time to meet with you whenever the help is needed, and is understanding. Tries to make all lessons as clear as possible. I would recommend others to take him.
that he is very passionate about teaching and sharing his knowledge in the field of accounting and the business field. He has taken the time to make sure that we understand the principles of accounting. Additionally, Dr. Kudo encourages us to give back to the community by volunteering to aid future college students in applying for financial aid. I believe that is a great program to participate and hope that it continues.
great! This course is great, and I am glad I took it with Dr.Kudo. His attention to details, and his spirit of wanting to teach the students is great. I did not see anyone drop from this course at all, and it's really hard to say that for a lot of my other courses. I find it rare to just have couple of students drop classes, but for Dr. Kudo, he excelled and NO ONE dropped! That must mean a great deal and shows how much people enjoy the way he teaches his course.
He is a great teacher and even though accounting is not a subject that I have an easy time with, Dr. Kudo made it easy for me to learn.
He is a great Accounting teacher and know a lot of information regarding it.
He is an excellent teacher who is able to capture the attention of his students and he is able to clearly present the material so that students can better learn and understand. He is also very good at responding to students who have questions or concerns about the course. He genuinely cares about students and he brings up other information that is beneficial to students, for example he mentioned that insurance companies are looking for accountants, so if we are interested that is a possible route.
A+
great instructor
Mr. Kudo is a very knowledgeable teacher. He knows how to teach his subject and explain it in a way we undertand.
He is a great teacher, very easy going and is available for you all the time when you need help and makes sure you get the material.
Professor Kudo is a very good educator. He is actively working in the accounting field and seems to have a great deal of experience to help him teach the course accurately. He gave great examples to relate accounting concepts to everyday life which made understanding the material easier than simply reading the text book.
Best teacher at University of Hawaii at West Oahu. I couldn't emphasize more of how good he is at what he does. He understands the material and explains it in a way so that everyone is on the same page. I never had a teacher care so much about doing well in a class. He gives us every opportunity to earn points while still understanding the material at hand. I cannot express more of how great of a teacher he is. If you give your 100% as a student he definitely gives 100% back. I hate accounting. However, I love this class.
excellent professor, if I were an accounting major i would feel extremely prepared upon graduation to take the CPA exam
He is a great teacher and actually made me like Accounting, not just accept is as necessary for graduation. He is clear about what we need to know and why, and makes clear connections with real-life examples that more clearly illustrates concepts.
He is a great teacher. Makes the material easy to understand, and he truly cares if his students are passing or not. He also makes the work very reasonable, which makes getting a good grade not out of reach.
One of the best profs I've encountered. Makes material easy to understand and a great teaching style.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
this is a challenging course, there is a lot of material to learn.
A well taught and very informative course.
Overall I liked the course. It is necessary for my major and so it is always good to learn more about what I will be getting into when I start working full time as my career.
I only took this course because it was needed for my degree but if Professor Kudo taught classes on another subject, I would definitely take him again and recommend his classes to friends.
i had a hard time, but that is because i hate accounting but Professor Kudo helped me to understand the material better.
The course is good. The content is reasonable, considering that it is Accounting. Professor Kudo has the course set up where students learn about a lot of different concepts and principles.
I loved this course because I am an Accounting major and this is the type of work that I love to do. It was well taught and I am positive that the knowledge I have gained in this course will prove very valuable later in life.
This course was very challenging but at the same time it gave me better foundation of the accounting system and how it works.
Hard class but excellent instruction
very informative class.
This course was a good experience and I wouldn't mind taking another course that he is instructing.
Enjoyed the course. Challenging, but well worth it.
A course to take if you want to take accounting.
I really enjoyed taking this class. He makes learning fun
It is a very difficult course to understand the material without the teaching style of Dr. Kudo who made understanding the material a great deal easier.
This is not an easy class. However, depending on the teacher, the course material can be learned well.
great!
More time would be nice to bette grasp concept
that although the workload may seem a bit overwhelming at first, Dr. Kudo strategically spreads out the assignments evenly... allowing a thorough discussion for each chapter. I would definitely recommend other students to take this course
I took this course before with another instrutor... and it wasn't great. Dr Kudo made it great for me to learn, and set up a great environment for students to succeed.
I learned a lot.
It is a great course.
This course is a necessary course for me to graduate, but it also directly relates to my career path. I know that most if not all of the material covered will be useful to me in my future career.
Awesome
hard course but instructor always gave reassuring words to let us know we can do it.
This course is a very difficult course to understand but Mr. Kudo does a great job at trying to simplify the subject matter to use in a way we understand.
This class is pretty challenging for me, but I believe its a good thing because if it were easy, I don't think I would be taking anything out of this class.
Best class ever.
Excellent course, though i dont think anyone in the class knows exactly how they are doing because the class average on the quizzes is rather low, and I dont know if he is curving the final grades or not.
I learned more from this one course than I have in all the other Accounting courses that I have taken combined. I was not going to take the next level course, but after taking this course I have decided to take it and am anticipating enjoying it as much as I have this course.
I would recommend this class to anyone. You think accounting is going to be boring and difficult but the way Mr. Kudo teaches it, it is interesting and beneficial to graduating with a business degree.
excellent
21. Other comments:
review sessions were very helpful.
I would highly recommended Dr. Kudo to any student who has to take BUSA 312 as the best professor to take the course from. I would tell them the course requires a lot of work but that Dr. Kudo knows the material very well and he teaches it so a student can understand the material.

This course has helped me to further understand some of the inner workings of accounting. I am slowly grasping the concepts, in time, I'm sure it will all come together.
This course actually ease my fear about accounting. I didn't say class is easy, what I mean is that this class is very interesting - actually better than 312.
Kudo did a good job explaining the tougher areas that were covered
Dr Kudo is an excellent teacher because he makes it simple to understand complex concepts. This course is an important foundation for the CPA exams so understanding and grasping the concepts in this class is crucial in passing the CPA exams.
We worked in groups to get problems done. We also had time limits which is normal for a work environment. We had deadlines we needed to meet and depending on how much effort we contributed would tell us if we would succeed or fail.
it allows me to be effectively understand the basics of accounting for businesses
it would help me to understand accounting and financial statements
This course was taken to fulfill the requirements for my major, but accounting is not my concentration. However, while taking this course (and BUSA 312 from Dr. Kudo) I developed an interest for the subject. I have even thought about changing my major (from General Business) a couple of times.
it really helped me ALOT! he is a GREAT teacher and I love going to class, he teaches us well and the context is easier to understand with his teaching methods
This course has helped me prepare for the CPA exam, as well as concepts and problem solving skills that I can use on the job.
Prof. Kudo ran us through the wringer to make sure we learned the important concepts and processes.
I gained a higher level of understanding regarding the subject and its concepts.
It made me realize that I really do not want to go into accounting as a major or career option.
This course was very informative about the accounting field. I was able to learn and gain more experience in this field to prepare me for my future career.
Better understand of how complicated the accounting world is.
It helped a lot. Mr Kuda used real world material and connected with classroom lectures.
This course enhanced my professional development in the accounting field to better understands intermediate accounting concepts.
I've been wanting to change to accounting, however decided to stick with General Business. This course made me want to switch back to accounting.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
I have no additional topics. Mr Kudo, provided an ample amount of activities and resources for me.
The only thing I don't like about this class is the textbook. I prefer text book with more examples. If we have to keep using this or any Wiley book, it will good if there is another text for this class. This alternative text can be option for students who want to know more about accounting. Another problem is that there are too many chapters but too little time. It will be better if we can go into each topic in more detail.
Not really sure anything other than the textbook is needed (unless there was some kind of supplementary cd-disc that worked hand in hand with the book)
Maybe the formation of formal group study groups to enhance learning
nothing, this is a great class that needs no improvement
The preperation week before the exams were very helpful. It gave me a general idea of what to expect on the exam and what parts I needed to study more.

I just wish the course went by slower, but I know this is college and this is the normal speed.
I cant think of any at the moment. Professor Kudo used all the textbook resources efficiently, and he made his own outside resources to help us learn.

I can't think of any
We need more TV screens to better so the powerpoints and those crappy dry erase markers need to be better supplied.

Maybe a little time for questions at the beginning of class in case some may have run into problems on the homework or did not fully understand it. However, Dr. Kudo was available after class and answered e-mails promptly concerning questions on the homework assignments. Also, being able to get the homework assignments back before the quiz would help to understand the mistakes that were made previously.
None. Love his teaching style.

(A+), Awesome.
I think Dr. Kudo is doing a great job teaching his students and keeping them interested in Accounting.
Great teacher, would recommend to others
I think Mr. Kudo is a good instructor. He makes it easier for us to understand the material and points out what is important that we need to know. I would recommend him to any student deciding to take this class. And hopefully Mr. Kudo could teach other courses such as advanced accounting insead of only teaching financial accounting.
Excellent instructor and I would highly recommend to other students.
great teacher...hope he stays around until i graduate
He is a great professor who really knows the material for the class. He gives multiple examples so that we can grasp the concept.
great teacher.... not a book reader like other professors makes me feel like it was worth the money i paid for
an excellent teacher who genuinely cares about his students and does anything he can to make you understand and learn the material.
very good teacher
that he is an excellent professor. By far one of the best I have had in my college education. Makes a difficult subject with plenty of concepts and information seem manageable. His teaching style makes learning the subject matter fun and actually makes me want to attend his lectures.
Frank Kudo For The Win.
he is a GRAT teacher! very helpful and VERY knowledgeable. he gives grat real life examples we can relate to which for me persoanlly makes it easier for me to understand he material. I love that he pffers a community service project for us
Prof Kudo is, in my humble opinion, a superior professor. If all the professors at UHWO were as prepared, organized, knowledgeable, approachable, and understanding as Prof Kudo I believe the school would see a strong improvement in accounting students' GPA. I always know what to expect and feeling like I learned a new concept or skill from every class.
Love his classes. He does an excellent job, is knowledgeable, well prepared and does a great job getting the lessons across.
Excellent Professor! Really cares about his students and their understanding of the subject!
One of the best teachers I've taken throughout my college career. I recommend him to everyone that needs a course that he teaches. He's positive and upbeat which makes the class a little more enthusiastic consider the subject matter is not so enjoyable.
He really knows his subject, but it is obvious that he did not have any difficulty with it because he sometimes does not know how to explain things in laimens terms.
He is a great and very educated instructor! I loved his class!
AWESOME! Fun, entertaining, great learning environment, and always there to help
A great teacher who makes learning fun and interesting. Good lectures and very clear on instructions.
He is awesome. Keeps your attention and his class is not boring. There is never a dull moment in his class.
Great!!!! Makes me want to come to class!

It's fun and interesting.
Great class, Kudo made the subject interesting
Essential in understanding key concepts in Accounting and for future use in the CPA exams
This course was very difficult with a lot of principles and vocabulary, but with Professor Kudo helping us along the way, it was easier to retain the information. The examples were great and the in-class problems helped give more reference.
great
good class
a very difficult one to learn, but with the right professor (Dr. Kudo), it is all of a sudden enjoyable. The course goes into great detail of the subject matter, trying to prepare one for situations that may occur in the profession.
Not a big fan of the course itself, but Kudo makes it the least painful that anyone could ever make it.
Hard course, excellent professor!
Excellent!
This course was quite difficult compared to BUSA 312. I did learn more technical detailed information in this course.
Great teacher; however, I don't think ACC 201 and ACC 202 prepared you enough for BUSA 312 and BUSA 313. 201 and 202 were far too slow paced compared to 312 and 313.
This is a great course for those who are becoming future accountants.
Fun, entertaining, and learning a lot at the same time.
A+
I learned a lot more than I though I would this semester from this course. I like Prof. Kudo's style of teaching and the way that he stresses the importance of certain chapters.
I plan to do it all over again.

this course has helped me get ready to understand the needs for account principles
I feel Dr. Kudo is teaching this course in a manner that will help prepare students to take the CPA exam.
This class is the foundation for all other accounting classes. Dr Kudo was an excellent instructor who made complex matters simple to understand. I thoroughly enjoyed his class.
It was able to build on the topics I learned in previous classes and provide a deeper understanding for the subject.
This course helped me to understand and embrace accounting better.
If gave me a better understanding with regards to specific areas of accounting.
VERY helpful! he is a great teacher, very encouraging and willing to help when we need the extra help
Improved my understanding of accounting principles and methods for me to use later.
He is a very good teacher and makes learning interesting. He relates what hes teaching us to real life.
Mr Kudo's teaching methods were easy to follow and understand. Accounting is not a very exciting subject but he made it fun.
It has helped me to better understand the concepts of Accounting and the proper methods to record keeping.
I learned the necessary skills for financial accouting. Each section can be easily seen on how it will help me in the accounting field. It showed me how to document the different transactions and how much to charge.
It enhanced my accounting skills and knowledge I'll need in the work force.
It has stregnthen my belief that I definetly do not want to go into accounting. I struggle with this subject.
This course expanded my understanding on the procedures and principles of accounting that I had practiced in earlier prereq. courses very well. Even though I have no intention of pursuing an accounting degree, I feel that this course is a must have for any business major.
Yes this really helped me enhance my skills as a leader and how business management is so important to the field. I am a marketing major and will become the owner of my own business one day.
I have a better understanding of the financial world
Helped better understand the topics covered in the class
The instructor took care to include real-world applications in his lessons.
This is a great course that is more advanced then the previous accounting courses I have taken, which is helping me learn more about the field. With this class I am improving my knowledge and skills.
This course help me better understand some of the details that were not well covered in one of my other courses.
Owe my, I have learned so much in this class; I wouldn't know exactly where to begin. This has been a great class so far. I enjoyed learning about the annuities and investment section.
This course was critical in my development as a business major. The course enhanced my knowledge not only with the accounting basics, but also fundamental ideas on what it takes to be successful in the business environment. I felt this course was very relevant to my success as a business man in the future.
The course provided a more in depth analysis of financial accounting processes and procedures. I found it very informative and necessary as an accounting major.
My major is accounting/Business thus taking this intermediate accounting class has greatly provided me more in depth materials/concepts/GAAP principles and the like.
This helped me have a better understanding of the different relationships in accounting.
This course has gone into depth from what I had learn from LCC . It has enhanced my personal and professional development in my major.
this course had a lot of details that helped me at my current job

Dr. Kudo's review sessions for exams are the most invaluable resource in his class. Do not change a thing.
None
I feel that the class is already being taught in an effective matter
he has all the resources you need! I have never taken a class that the professor offered so many resources, I LOVE that
maybe adding a few more group activities or competitions
he has very helpful reviews for exams.
???
The review sessions were really helpful when studying for the exam. There is a lot of infomation on the exams and the review sessions gave us the general area to study.
N/A
The exam prep is excellent! The activities that he has students engage in to prepare for the exam really helps.
I think that he did a great job with class participation and giving examples of real life situations.
Write a little bigger on the white board, it was difficult to read from the back row.
More slides (powerpoint?) that show examples rather than the majority being definitions
Well, I like how the class is broken into two days, day one is lesson and conceptual and day two is some more conceptual/problems and a quiz. I do enjoy doing a lot of problems, which are available for us already. We have online problems we can work on also. I can't think of any new activities at the moment.
Mr. Kudo did an excellent job; I wouldn't change a thing.
Great teacher. Loved it all.
all activities were adequate and there were more then enough resources to learn the material well. Nothing needs to be added.
I think the course is very effective already.
Given the 75 minute class period time limit, there was so much material to cover in such a short amount of a time because our BUSA 312 class ran a 1 chapter per week routine. In spite of all that, there was a wide range of resources that I could make good use of to help me study for my weekly quizzes and homeworks. There were very few activities but all greatly helped a lot in preparation for the exams/quizzes.
Everyone learns differntly so I think recorded lectures as well would have been good.
this course was near perfect

The course was way too intense for me. It moved so quickly; faster than ACC 201 & 202. Kudo should use the powerpoint slides more frequently. I am a visual and audio learner, so that would have been better. Also, a week for a chapter seems a little fast.
I think we need more time on lectures on days with presentations. Maybe cutting them down to 3 a day and/or at the end of class.
None
Quizzes and the HW being turned in at the same time was awkward. Assuming I was completely lost on the HW, I wouldn't "understand" the concepts before taking the quiz as the answers aren't posted yet (I think)
The only suggestion I can think of is to slow it down during the lectures. I know time is limited and we should know most of the material already, but I feel that the new information I learn is taught a little too fast. But overall, he's a great professor.
Mr. Kudo did an outstanding job; I would not change a thing. He's a great teacher!
He does an awesome job. Good examples and prep for the exams. Loved it all!
no suggestions needed. Well taught and executed course. Very organized
I have no suggestions.
His teaching style is well taught and he knows what he is teaching. He tries his best to keep the class motivated and into learning the class materials taught. However he tends to leave some people behind through the course of teaching and tends to leave students still confused. It would be nice to see him make sure that all the students knows what he is talking about and lets no one confused during the lectures.
I think that instead of lecture material being covered on the same day as the quiz, Prof. should go over ALL material first then give the quiz the following class day. Not on the same day!
kudo is doing a great job and should continue exactly as he does.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
excellent!!!!!!!!
Dr. Kudo is well prepared and professional. I look forward to taking instruction from him again.
He is excellent! very approachable. Thanks to Dr. Kudo, accounting becomes interesting and fun subject to learn.
He is an excellent instructor who brings a lot of real world experience and examples to make us understand complex accounting principles.
a great professor who is very knowledgeable of the subject matter. He is very patient with students and makes sure that the current material is understood before moving on. Professor Kudo is always available for additional help and fully answers any questions students may have.
Superb! :D
He is awesome. Very knowledgeable and motivates students to do well.
CLASS IS HARD!!!
GREAT TEACHER he really makes accounting understandable. He offers such great resources for us.
Frank Kudo = win
very good teacher. makes it easier to learn.
excellent professor
He is a great professor with lots of examples and problems that help with the learning process of a lot of the material in financial accounting. Without all the examples and practice problems, learning the material would have been much harder.
Excellent professor in teaching Accounting!
excellent teacher who loves what he does and really ensures that students understand and learn from him.
He is a good person, but as a teacher he moves too fast.
Amazing teacher. He is not only highly proficient at accounting, but is also a proven and successful business owner. Any student that takes his course should realize that they have a wealth of knowledge and experience teaching them and should be very thankful and appreciative of this opportunity.
great!
AWESOME TEACHER AND TEACHING SKILLS!
Excellent teacher that used "real world" examples to get his point across instead of concentrating strictly on the text
The instructor does a great job getting the material across, is EXTREMELY well organized and goes out of his way to be available and answer questions both in class and outside class. He does a great job of getting some very difficult material across to students.
Professor Kudo is a great instructor. He has great knowledge in this course he teaches. He covers a lot of important information. He does conceptual lessons, problems, and uses a great way to study for our exams as a group.
His style of teaching keeps the subject interesting and upbeat. Using his personal life experiences as examples as well as generational examples that keep the subject matter relevant to the present. Overall great teacher was recommended to me and I will recommend to others.
Mr. Kudo receives a grade of (A+). He is enjoys teaching and makes it fun to learn. Very Energetic!!
excellent professor. One of the best I have ever had!
Good Professor!
A top-notch professor. one of the best teachers I have had at UH. Knows the subject inside and out and understands how to teach the material. He is fair and easy to approach. You can tell that he cares about his students and wants them to do well.
He is very good at making important points clear.
Mr. Kudo is a very friendly instructor that could be talked to easily. He always tries to put his students first before him and always try to answer questions asked by the class. He tries to incorporate pictures that pertain to the class lectures in a way that we can relate to the material when it gets difficult to understand. However he sometimes goes fast paced and tends to leave students confused.
I enjoy the class. His presentation was good and his group idea was clever.
Mr. Kudo is a great accounting teacher, he goes into detail with what we need to know and make it easier for us to learn the concept or the main idea of the chapter. Also gives us another way of learning it, instead of what is given in the book. I have learned a lot from his class and I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
his positive attitude makes me want to do great in class

Great course. Dr. Kudo requires much of the students through extensive homework and class participation, but there is a method to this madness - and it works!
awesome!
Difficult, yet fun learning environment.
Fun class, would recommend to others
Overall, this course is a great informational course needed to help me in the field I am going into. It covers many topics that will help me in the future.
This class was a bit difficult for me, but I learned a great deal of information. I would recommend this class to future UHWO students. This was a pretty good class.
great!
Good Class....good Professor!
good course. Very relevant to the business concentration. Learned a lot and was challenged
Financial Accounting can be rather boring but Kudo made it fun and educational.
One of the best accounting classes that I've taken at UHWO and strongly looking foward to see more accounting classes similar to BUSA 312. Dr. Kudo has probably contributed most of his effort and time into making this a fun, interactive, interesting class. It has some flaws but all and all there is no other class like this.
this course was challenging, but kudo makes it seem easy

The only other comment I have is that the way the book explains the concepts is really hard to understand. I am at a college reading level, but I always feel that I don't understand the book, even if I read it 3 times in a row.

This course has provided me a more in depth knowledge of all the different aspects of accounting. It was a refresher from my earlier accounting courses, providing a more detailed information and introducing new concepts at the same time.
it helped a lot
It really proved that accounting is very diffucult and you have to pay attention to detail but i still love it and enjoy learning every part.
I feel I got everything I needed to be a successful account in the future!
Professor Kudo eloquently explained the uses for Accounting, whether majoring in Accounting or Business Administration. I will take the lessons I learned about how to read and calculate financials into the business field. He also taught us how to manner ourselves through leading by example.
This course gave a better understanding of the kind of methods and concepts used in the accounting profession.
He taught me many essentials things I need in my future career. Not many professors teach and personalize the lessons based on learning styles the way that Professor Kudo does.
Being that accounting is much more than a major for me, Dr. Kudo helped solidify my foundation in accounting. I am confident that this course has built a strong foundation for my future in accounting.
deals with the general idea of my major
This class is the second part of financial accounting and it was beneficial to my major.
This course has definitely enhance my major concentration.
Greatly. Without the knowledge of this course, it will be impossible to move forward with my goal of becoming a CPA.
This course helped me to understand more of the accounting process and also reinforced accounting processes that I learned in the past.
I've learned a broad range of accounting principles and concepts. These enhance my ability and knowledge to develop my professional path in accounting.
It was very challenging. Dr. Kudo did what he could to give us the best and affective course he could give us.
This course is very inportant to my professional developement and im sure it will help me for the CPA exam.
I was able to learn concepts and problems to material. My concentration is in accounting and this course was very helpful in learning Financial Accounting and a better understanding of it.

None.
I feel that everything I had and used was essential in my learning.
The course was already excellently set-up.
his method of teaching is good
Maybe to go over homework assignments with us to improve our confidence and knowledge of the course material.
Professor has provided a different activities during the class throughout the semester. for examples, class exercise,group review, individual homework. i personally think that these activities have provided me ample chance to learn and grasp the concept because i believe that repetition is the best medicine for accounting. Maintain the same since it does work!
Dr. Kudo gives us everything we need and then some. I wouldn't change anything.
The materials, such as problems, homework, quizes, preps, all were very helpful. There is really no need to add anything else.

Teaching style is great. I loved his methods.
make use of laulima website. what we have are good--learning resources. However,if possible, some link of examples pertaining to chapter could be very helpful for some students.
I don't think this course needs to be improved any.

Great teacher. He really knows his subject.
Professor Kudo is a great teacher and mentor. He is very detailed in his instruction and answers all questions in an easy to understand manner.
great teacher
Best teacher ever! Very encouraging.
One of the best professors i've met so far.
Professor Kudo is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is readily available for help, and genuinely cares about his student's success. His volunteer efforts to help high school students with their FAFSAs are incredibly admirable.
He is a great and professional teacher. Very easy to get along with and available when needed for help with homework.
Dr. Kudo is an amazing educator, and very motivational. By far, the most inspirational instructor that I have had throughout my undergrad career.
great professor
A very organized professor who really strives to make his students understand the concepts of Accounting.
Great professor.
Outstanding!! Dr. Kudo is a fair professor. He was well organized, concise, and covered the right amount of information for the semester. He taught each chapter in way that the students will understand. I also enjoyed how he had brought real accounting statements (10K, ect.)to show the class what will the actual work look like in the field. I really like the fact that he gives out handout so that we are not constantly copying rather learning the concepts of financial accounting. I strongly recommend any accounting student to take his course.
Great instructor. Time and repition is a must in order to succeed in this class.
A very good teacher. I would recommend Dr. Kudo to all accounting and business majors who wish to get the most of of their education.
Dr. Kudo is an excellent professor. He strives on his students to do well. He is always willing to listen to concerns and questions in class and answers emails promptly.
Dr. Kudo is very knowledgeable on his subject. he explained and made good examples to the class. he taught and presented to the class in a very friendly manner. he's always available at his office hour as well as outside it if student need to talk to him. Because of these, i feel very positive that i will definitely learn a lot from him and his experience from the beginning of semester, and he never fails.
he is a really cool professor. One who I can go to when I'm having trouble and go to for advice.
He really knows his material in and out
Professor Kudo overall is a very good instructor. The things we learned seemed very hard, but he taught us in a way where we are able to get a better understanding.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Course is hard work but worth it.
This course provides a very critical part in the intermediate level of the accounting field. It helped me understand the importance of all the different parts in accounting and how they all come together in the construction of the financial statements.
good class
I really like this class, even though the material isn't easy, Kudo knows just how to explain and make it clear.
Great Course!
Accounting is my least favorite subject; however, Professor Kudo made sure that we understood why it was important. Had I taken this course from another instructor I probably would not have learned a bit of the course material. Thankfully, Professor Kudo was readily available for help during office hours and ensured that I learned as much as I could.
Although this course is not easy, he made the material fun to learn.
Very tough, but the time spent to study material was well worth it.
great professor which makes the course not so painful
This was a very well taught class and I have no regrets in taking it.
My overall evaluation of this course is very challenge and fun at the same time.
Dr. Kudo has taught this course well enough to enjoy a course like financial accounting.
Very hard, a lot of work, but it will payoff.
Dr. Kudo helps students to understand accounting principles that are difficult. He draws us illustrations to help us understand better.
This class is a very strong base of financial accounting. all of students will use what we've learned from the class in their future career.
Challenging but effective.
I thought it was very well structured and I learned a lot from the class
Again, the course is very hard in general.
21. Other comments:

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
He related the material to everyday life and made it easy to understand
This course greatly enhanced my knowledge on accounting and reaffirmed my passion for my major.
a lot
Better understanding in Plant, Property, and Equipment Valuation for the Financial Statement.
It taught me a lot and gave me a better understanding of the accounting profession in the real world.
I further my knowledge of accounting with this course.
I gained a great deal of knowledge in the Accounting field that will help me in the future.
accounting is a requirement that is needed for my major
He has helped me understand how to apply accounting to an actual job. He takes real life situations and explains how it effects us and how it relates to accounting.
This course allowed me to learn about Accounting which will be vital in my future career. Professor Kudo knows his material and is fair at grading.
This is one of my core classes. I was taught well. Dr. Kudo is an extremely well-taught professor.
Very useful information.
I've gained knowledge of fundamental and important principles in accounting field and learned to apply them in each assigned problems. I believe this course is helping me develop and prepare myself for graduation and accounting career
In actualty, it doesn't; I am not planning on taking my CPA license or plan on working a small private company. This course is just a means for me to get my degree to increase my pay grade.
It helped me to get a grasp of what accounting was all about, and made it as enjoyable as accounting can be.
This was an introduction into my concentration and my first semester at west-oahu. I taught Mr. Kudo was a great teacher and will take 313 from him next semster.
This course was taken for my business major and Dr. Kudo helped me to better understand concepts that I guess was taught to me in the past but I just didn't remember.
The material for this course is intense, tedious, and time-consuming. It enhanced my ability to analyze and comprehend accounting material and jargon. I began to notice that towards the end of the course that material I once found difficult is becoming easier to swallow because I gained this new found logic and ability to analyze problems faster.
This course gave me a better understanding of the concepts of financial accounting.
It thought me a lot about accounting that I did not know. I know that these skills that I learned will help me in the future.
To be honest, when i took acc 201 and 202, i didn't really pay attention because the professor didn't make it interesting enough to engage his students in actually wanting to learn. However, professor kudo really made me feel different about this class and accounting in general. This class is a requirement because i am majoring in accounting. He really tunred my attitude around and actually made me really want to learn this material and he did a great job being that i did very very well on my midterm and im hoping to do well also on my final.
This major has given me both conceptual and mathematical insights into financial accounting. It basically explains what it is we are doing, and the reasoning why that is so. It basically ties in both conceptual and practice for accounting.
I really liked this course. Even thought it was a course requirement i really loved the professor he made the class fun. I didn't like accounting and he made it easier to understand. I once decided should i switch to accounting major because of this awesome teacher?..
This course allowed me to understand the concepts of financial accounting and Dr. Kudo provided many examples for all of the students
This course and the method it was presented provided needed knowledge and understanding of accounting. I learned many accounting concepts and applications.

He always does a superior job.
Everything Professor Kudo provided (activities/resources) was sufficient material for my learning.
none
Professor Kudo's explanation to the topics are really good, however I would like him to go to the whole powerpoint presentation and explain as we go.
Nothing
None
he uses laulima to share notes, grades, etc to communicate to his students, which is good. He also uses power point within his lectures
I don't think there is. The homework is great practice for the test and the midterm and final exam prep is awesome.
You must be well prepared before coming to the accounting class. Following the syllabus will prepare you for class. I would read then go to class to listen to the lecture. Mr. Kudo is creative in giving the students examples of an accounting situation. I am a visual learner, so his drawing improves my understanding of my reading. He is attentive to my emails.
I don't think this course need to much improvements, however, sustainability is a must.
Dr. Kudo has adequately provided excellent learning materials, including handouts, in-class PPT. He also used different examples to clearly and precisely demonstrate each problem.
not sure
in all seriousness, the answers to the homework would really help. Sometimes the homework is so tough, and after working on it all night, you find out you did it completely wrong. Not only did you not learn anything, but you learned everything the wrong way. It would be very helpful as a referance tool.
I thought he really knew his material and he related it into real life examples we could understand and relate to. I wouldnt have changed anything.
Nothing. Dr. Kudo provides you with all the resources you will need.
None
Maybe a little bit more in class problems very similar to homework problems.
I think Professor Kudo has given us ample notes, powerpoints, and effective lecture to make us understand and learn the material. There is nothing I can think of right now that can improve my learning, because honestly I learned a lot from this class as it is.
no improvements needed.. Kudo has everything all prepared.
The activities and resources used were sufficient, though the media equipment in class might need some upgrading.

N/A. His teaching style don't need any improvement :)I like how he made the students print out in Laulima lecture notes, problems and answers, and slides.
I think the improvement that I would have for Dr. Kudo would be his hand writing on the board. He writes really small and it was hard for me to see sometimes.
I think he should go over the homework because I would like to know which problems I did good or bad.
I like Dr. Kudo's teaching style and methods.
none...he's pretty thorough.
I wouldnt change anything. It was well planned out.
None
I don't want anything to change. He's doing a great job!
I can't think of anything really creative to improve the teaching style other than maybe providing the students more time to be more competitive. I think a little competition will boost learning and gives the students something to work hard over. I like the quizzes and the "steak and beans" contest.
no changes needed.
Professor Kudo's teaching method and style is very effective.
If we could go over the chapter quizzes in class, will really help better understanding the concepts.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Great teacher! Genuinely cares about his students.
He is a great and knowledgable teacher. He related to his students and clearly stated what was expected of us. He made sure we understood the material and offered many chances of redeeming ourselves (extra credit.)
he's hardwork and so is the course. but i learned a lot from him because he is awesome.
Awesome instructor
he is a great professor and would love to take all my accounting classes with him!!
He is a great instructor.
a good teacher, one of the many few.
Great instructor. He clearly explains material so all students understand.
He is fair, knows his material and can relate the information to the class.
He is a great teacher! I enjoyed going to class because he always made me smile. I enjoyed his examples or scenarios he explained in class that relates to accounting. It shows in class how much experienced he had and how much dedication he puts when he teachers his students.
He is a really good professor.
good, motivated teacher. One the kindest person I know.
Dr. Kudo is very knowledgeable on the topic. He was very well delivered objectives and content of each chapters. He always addressed the important concepts of each chapter. He was very well managed with all class assignments and exams. In addition, he gave feedback to the class very quick. Besides PPT handout, extra material, he additional provides class with chapter notes which are very helpful for me.
Mr. Kudo was very fair in all assignments, quizzes, exams, extra credits and/or class time.
excellent teacher. I was able to understand the course content after initially feeling incompetent.
Excellent professor and teacher...I hope he teaches alot more classes I need in my field of study.
Dr. Kudo is an excellent instructor. I found his teaching methods helped to understand the concepts better by his drawing out scenarios on the board for us. He always took the time to answer any student's question.
A++++. He shows you that what seems difficult is actually easy. The complicated mass sea of text is transformed into the most simple and direct explanations with Dr. Kudo. He also teaches with passion, charisma, and focus.
Fanklin Kudo is a great teacher and really knows the subject that he teaches. He displays a passion towards teaching and provides us students with the best possible ways of learning the material.
A great professor that cares about what he is teaching and makes sure we know the material.
He is such an interesting professor. Always happy and drawing pictures so that we understand the problem. He really knows what he's teaching and always comes to class organzied and prepared.
I think Professor Kudo is a good mentor. He clarifies and makes the students understand the concept. He doesn't just talk, he makes us understand what he's talking about. Instead of just mindless thinking, Professor Kudo taught us how to view the materials--how understanding is better than memorization.
He is the best teacher i have taken for accounting class. he makes everything understandable. When you go to his class you actually want to learn. He is so knowledgeable and funny. GREAT TEACHER!
A great teacher because he made the material easy to understand
Professor Kudo is great teacher.
Mr.Kudo is a great accounting professor. He makes the class very fun. At the same time, two class for each chapter is also intensive. The class demand lots of study time, which is good. I feel like I got my tuition worthy. Thank you Mr.Kudo.

great course. i learned a lot.
Awesome class
Awesome
I enjoyed the class. It was very helpful.
great teacher.
An "A"
Mr. Kudo is a very talented teacher. He made me understand the concepts of accounting and how it will relate in the accounting field and life.
I always had fun in this course. Some other course made me fall asleep. In this course Dr. Kudo kept me interested and made me want to learn.
Very challenging course, but very useful.
I think this course is very important for every students.
suggest that this course be taking shortly after 201 or 202. when there is several years gap between accounting courses like this; remembering everything in the first two courses is very difficult including when you are not using it often enough.
Excellent. Not a fan of accounting, but Kudo made it enjoyable.
I would/have recommended this class and teacher to my friends.
The material covered in this course is not material that is easy to understand. Dr. Kudo's method of teaching helped to understand the concepts better.
The course is a challenge, but I find it essential. It is the bread and butter of accounting. My only complaint is possisbly textbook alternatives. I noticed after using Wiley books that they tend to not be user friendly compared to McGrawhill textbooks.
A course that I would recommend to anyone that needs it for their major.
I loved it! Kudo is a great and fun professor. He shows that he really wants his students to learn something and benefit from it. He gives his own personal experience and always gives help to us in class. I will be taking his busa 313 class in the fall.
the course material i had a hard time with but the professors online handouts for classwork and the ppt, when reviewing it.. really helped!
The course re-emphasize the materials presented in basic accounting classer. The course was informative.

Keep up the good work Mr. Kudo. Your dedication to the students helped me understand and enjoy accounting.
This is one of my favorite classes this semester.
Would highly recommend to any student going into accounting.
FAFSA was also fun and a good experiment.

BUSA 313 emphasizes the in-depth part of financial accounting. I learned a lot of things that will prepare me as a competent, knowledgeable, successful professional in the future and as individual as a whole.
It has given me a better understanding of accounting principals, and given me a better overall understanding of accounting.
I learned how to better understand, interpret, and put together different types of financial statements. This course helped me gain the skills and knowledge needed to attack the CPA exam with confidence.
This course provided me with accounting information and skills that I hope to utilize as I attempt to take and pass the CPA exam. Everything this course provided me with was relevant to my major. In addtion, this course went over and beyond my expectations, and helped me develop not only as a student but as a person as well. I definitely am not the top student, but I never gave up and did my best to manage my time, considering the amount of time it took to do homework and prepare for the exams.
Acct 313 is a course requirement for my major. Mr. Kudo did a great job of teaching this difficult material. I feel much better about sitting for the CPA exam having taken this class with Mr. Kudo.
i think this course is great and made me understand more about the current situation of the nation. the topics learn on this class are very usefull
Dr Kudo, throughout the entire semester, found better ways of explaining the important information than the method that the book used. He has made information that is otherwise boring and very confusing, something that I feel I can use throughout my career as an accountant.
I had better understanding in accounting.
i have a better understanding of the accounting principals.
The course taught me many principles and concepts needed for my major. Covered everything expected and more!
It gave me a better grasp of how accounting works with the business.

Maybe an "optional" assignment reading and discussion of current accounting issues for the class.
His assignments and weekly quizzes are very helpful. His games are very fun and competitive.
He gives a great amount of chances to succeed in the class.
I have no suggestions.
The lecture notes and the online powerpoint resources were very helpful. After reading the chapters, I was usually left confused and overwhelmed and the lecture notes were very helpful in emphasizes the important sections of the class.
I wish professor had more time teching each chapter.
Mr. Kudo does a really good job in being organized and making reviews fun and memorable.
Great reviews and lectures!

Dr. Kudo, keep doing what you do.
I have no suggestions. I was extremely please with the course as it is set up right now.
Can't think of any at the moment.
I honestly think this course is very good. Dr Kudo sets aside extra weeks for chapters that are maybe a little harder to understand, giving extra class time to parts that are needed.
none
i dont think there is anything more that Mr. Kudo can do.
No improvements necessary! Awesome teaching methods!

great teacher. Really tries to explain things so that everyone can follow along and understand
He is an excellent teacher. He takes the time to have a feel for the students while he is teaching. He will adjust his lecture if he feels that the students aren't 'getting it' and will present the material in different ways to facilitate student learning. He offers students support in their learning both inside and outside the classroom. While the subject is not easy he gives everyone opportunities to learn the material and succeed in the class.

great Mr. Kudo makes sure to bring up current events that are taking place in the world of business.
Difficult subject but Kudo gets you to understand it very well!
Very challenging, but insightful course.

Thank you Dr. Kudo!
Thank you Dr Kudo for helping me to understand this course better and always being available for questions. Through out the semester, you helped every student that came to you, and if there was a question or something someone could not understand, you were sure to find a way to explain it better.

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
I'm general business major but accounting is definitely an important subject to know. I feel with Dr.Kudo teaching the course I have a better understanding of the subject.
This course helped me understand finance in the business world. This course helped alleviated previous fears of entering the business the world after graduation.
Taking this course made me realize that I would really like to become an accountant.
This class is very important in the Accounting field. The knowledge covered by this class has helped in my professional and personal development because it has expanded on what I had learned earlier when obtaining my A/S in Accounting.
This course helped me gain a better understanding of accounting concepts and methods. The first two accounting courses I took (201 and 202) were taken online, and I struggled to learn the concepts. In this course, the instructor helped with the learning process immensely.
This course will help me in my professional career in the future as a business owner.
This course was very helpful. Dr. Kudo does a very great job at explaining each chapter and problem. He offers great review sessions to prepare for exams.
It taught me many conceptual ideas that I have used in other classes.
Got a requirement out of the way.
This course has given me hands on learning about accounting worldwide.
it taught me how to use the basics of accounting in the future.
Intermediate Accounting enhanced my personal aspect through discipline--spending a lot of time studying and hardwork--trying to accomplish all homework/tests due. This course helps me to understand the more complex and in-depth part of accounting which I can apply to my professional career path.
This course enhanced my knowledge about further accounting principles that i did not know before. It also strengthened my conceptual knowledge for the subject, which was much needed.
this is my second time taking this course. the first time it was from sharon cox. she failed me. This time around i have kudo and i understand the course a whole lot better. right now im averaging a b. he is an awsome teacher
It helped me get better understanding of the accounting aspect of the business.
This course has enabled me to use real accounting methods in my personal work and has improved my knowledge of the requirements and standards involved with accounting preparation for a business.
I learned more about financial accounting issues and how they apply to business and the importance of recording financial transactions correctly.
It would give me basic background to do my work.
Dr. Kudo's method of teaching helps to better relate academic concepts to real life situations.
This course enhanced my knowledge of financial accounting, and Mr. Kudo did a great job of discussing more complex sections of Acct 201/202 like double declining balance for depreciation. Mr. Kudo taught many conceptual aspects of the profession as new international standards will change from rule based to more conceputal format. Another aspect I was pleased with was all of the valuation work we did this semester. Valuing companies assets is very complicated, Mr Kudo did a great job in explaining the many different methods of doing this.
This course has taught me a lot about the accounting practices as well as giving a general oversight to the business field. It was very informative and fun to learn with Dr. Kudo.
Accounting is an important measure of good business practice. This has been helpful is furthering my knowledge of accounting and it's concepts. Being a business major and not accounting major, many of my accounting classes have been trying at times, but found this class to be the best accounting class I have had in my college career.
It broadened my understanding of accounting principles.
It helps me in networking with people in the industry by giving me an understanding of the mechanics of business administration.
This class helped me to reaffirm that I really do want to major in accounting.
the way mr kudo performed in class was exactly how it should be. that is real knowledge from a real business dinosaur.
Yes, I learned a lot about financial accounting and I am confident in the concepts that was taught.
This course is very important to understand acounting
This course taught me a great deal of information that I hope to use in the Accounting profession!
It helped gave me the knowledge on how inventory are calculated, performed, and made realize how much effort you need to put into this concentration.

I think that the course is fine the way it is.
All activities involving the course were sufficient, appropriate, and reinforced in class lectures/information.
More forums
Can't think of anything at the moment.
I think having fewer quizzes would allow more time for learning or maybe group work. Practicing the problems in class helped a lot, as well as the group work when we reviewed for exams.
More exercises.
I love everything about this class.
n/a
The activities and resources we good enough to enhance my learning.
mr. kudo really does a great job in getting the students involved in the class.
practice doing more problems.. accounting problems we will face when we go out in the real world.
All activities and resources provided are sufficient to improve my learning.
Course does go very quickly, however the lectures and activities are so good that you manage to stay on top of things and understand the material. Maybe more time could be spent on the more difficulty chapters so that the full concept is grasped and not just in there for the time being and forgotten later.
i dont think there is any need for improvement dr. kudo is an excellent teacher and i enjoy his teaching method
none
none.
The class was a perfect balance of learning resources to understand the material.
I wish their were tutor for our major to do our homework or prepare for our test.
None. Dr. Kudo makes himself available to students and encourages study groups and other forms of teamwork.
I think Mr. Kudo was very organized, and worked hard to get us through the book in a short time. The quizes are very difficult, but that makes you study more in order to get a good grade. I liked the idea of bringing a local executive to talk to us. That was inspirational.
I don't think that I would change a thing about this course. The activities made the learning fun and kept you on your toes. It is a challenging course but Dr. Kudo made the learning process fun so I didn't mind the work.
no comment
I've enjoyed the guest speakers and the study sessions that the instructor provided. It helps whan an instructor can make the subject a little more fun!
Everything we needed was provided to us in Laulima through PowerPoint slides for every chapter, study guides to help us prepare for exams, and also practice exercises that we could do to help us actually learn and understand better the material.
the accounting club can be more accessible.
None.
I would like to see the work in an office of a real accountant.
I feel the instructor chose an appropriate text and gave all the material needed to fully grasp the course.

None
I have no suggestions, the class if fine the way that it is.
I think the weekly quizzes weren't very helpful in the learning process. Maybe a quiz every two or three weeks would be more effective.
Great Professor!
Everything is great but he could write bigger on the board.

None.
nothing to add i think its good
in the beginning of class it would be best to refresh us students about the topic... for example if we're covering intangible assets... i forgot what they were bec its was a while back when i took accounting...
I learned a lot from his teching style and methods. Nothing to suggest.
love the steak and beans contest. It really does help prepare for the examinations, great review methods for tests.
no need improvements

Some of the homework problems were much more complicated then what we were actually learning making the homework sometimes frustrating.
Dr. Kudo is a great professor the only thing i would suggest is that we could do more group work so we can learn alot easier.
I do not have.
None. Real life relation and availability helps in the learning process.
The homework can be a little frusturating sometimes. Maybe spending some time on the homework in class would be good. Although he gives us the answers after the class is over, and also provides office hours to go over homework.
None.
The chapter study guides were helpful for the difficult weekly exams, though could have had more information presented. Even though the entire chapter and book wasn't covered in class, the quiz questions were heavily detailed and specific to the book. Took a few weeks of tests to understand how to study for them. The first quiz felt like student was set up to fail.
There is no need for improvement. It's already the best it can get!!
I don't think there's much room for improvement. I think the class is great the way it is.
video record the class and have the copy on laulima. as extra assistance.

I feel the course was taught as well as could be.
The instructor sometimes goes to fast. However he does ask the class if there are any questions.

The best instructor I've had in a long time.
Excellent. All material covered and interaction with students professional.
that he is an awesome teacher that truly cares about his students.
He is a great instructor in that he is in tune to the students he teaches. While the material is not easy to learn he presents it in a manner that makes it easier to learn. He provides examples that are relevant and understood by the students. He is approachable when you need to ask a question.It doesn't matter if the answer something he's covered before he will readily answer and help the student understand the material. He is a pleasure to have as an instructor.
This instructor was one of the best instructors that I've had. I really enjoy the lectures, and his teaching is very easy to understand. He makes the learning environment fun and the material applicable. His reviews for the exams are extremely helpful. I also enjoyed the speaker from Hawaiian Telcom that he brought in to speak to us.

Great, good teacher, very well prepared for class, and he knew his material.
Excellent. Professor Kudo has always made himself available for student/teacher meetings. He is very clear in his instructing methods and is very organized with his lecture notes and materials. He has offered extra credit and has offered programs (i.e. FAFSA program) that will not only enhance the student's grade, but will also help the student's resume. He is very friendly and creates an active learning environment.
Very good instructor, clear and concise. Also motivational and fair.
He is a very good instructor who comes prepared in class and really knows more about the subject. Also he is approachable if you have any questions i would definitely take him again if im an accounting major.
Excellent because he gave us hint that would not surprise us.
Dr. Kudo is a strong teacher who may speak fast but is willing to take the time to ensure that students understand the material (both conceptual and methodoligy)

This was my first class with Professor Kudo. I really enjoyed his teaching style, he was interesting and able to get the material across in an understandable way.
He is GREAT professor
The instructor is dedicated to the students and willing to help in every way possible. I could not have asked for a better, more dedicated, and more knowledgable instructor.

Good. It's appropriate that all business majors are required to take this course.

I would recommend this course and instructor combination to anyone that is looking to obtain a BABA degree with a focus in Accounting.
I enjoyed this course, and feel that the course is extremely relevant to the degree program (business administration). Anyone thinking of getting into a business career, needs to have a basic understanding of accounting principles and concepts.
Great Class!
Dr. Kudo makes this course very interesting and easy to understand.
This course was very educational and helpful.
Good class to take
great class. Good opportunity to learn about accounting at West O'ahu. Best teacher.

Very useful for the real world and important to any business curriculum.
I believe the course is necessary for any business major and it was well taught, I feel I was well educated on all of the objectives and it has prepared me for further education in accounting.
The Accounting course was hard but Dr. kudo makes it easier to learn.
Excellent because we know where to study for test.
A good class to have regardless of one's major and requirements.
THis course is very challenging and requires a lot of reading and studying. We have the conceptual parts of the accounting subjects as well as difficult problems we encounter. Mr. Kudo and this course expanded my understanding of the accounting profession.
It is a great course that will challenge students, and as long as the student is willing to put the time in they will succeed.
Good. A great class for a difficult subject. The material was presented in a challenging way, with opportunities to get involved in the community. Overall I enjoyed the experience of this course.
I highly recommend Dr. Kudo to any student who is struggling in Accounting, he makes the course study fun, and you actually learn even if you don't want to! He cares about you and will take time to help you in every sense of the word. He's extremely knowledgeable and empathizes with all the students. He's simply the best! And is the main reason why there's more accounting students who pass the CPA exam than any other college and university in the University of Hawaii system.
This is one of the few courses I had this semester that I actually looked forward to attending twice a week. Dr. Kudo really makes sure that you do understand fully the material and if you don't, he explains the subject matter in a way that almost anyone can understand and grasp.
pretty good actually with opportunity to really learn the ropes.
this instructor is the best instructore I've ever had. I strongly recommed to take this instructor's class.
