Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Cost Drivers Scenario [WLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4] [CLOs: 3, 6]
Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapters 4, 5, and 17 in your textbook.
Write: Make sure your response addressing the following question is more than 200 words and include an in-text citation from the reading material where appropriate.
Determine the difference between a cost object and a cost driver by giving an example of each within the context of a manufacturing plant of your own choosing. Be specific. Explain why this differentiation is important in activity-based costing (ABC).
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates by commenting on their posts. Do you agree with your peers’ explanations? Why or why not? Though two replies are the basic expectation for class discussions, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you. Continuing to engage with peers and the instructor will further the conversation and provide you with opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real-world experiences with the discussion topics.
