GONZALEZ-ACOSTA, Eloy; ALMEIDA-GONZALEZ, Maylié; TORRES-CHILS, Aleymis  e  TRABA-MONTEJO, Yeny M.. Gamification as an educational tool: the accounting student in the role of the manager, the accountant, and the auditor. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.5, pp.155-164. ISSN 0718-5006.

This research proposes learning by gamification in a role-playing game with accounting students who face a business situation in the classroom. Groups of three students assume the role of the manager, the accountant, and the internal auditor and make management and ethical decisions. Comparatively, another group of students who received content by traditional methods was analyzed. A Likert-type questionnaire was applied to measure motivation in all students. A factorial ANOVA quasi-contrasted experiment was used to assess score differences in the incidence of the methodological and the motivational factors. The results showed significant differences for both factors. It is concluded there exist a correlation between the grades of students and the development of their own accounting career content by the proposed role-playing gamification.
