UIL Accounting Practice Packets for High School contain six 80-question tests with a student answer sheet, answer keys, solutions, and scoring sheets. Since this contest has not changed for years, many customers purchase previous year's practice packets for even more experience taking actual UIL accounting tests.
Students who participate in UIL Accounting are often welcomed into many different organizations upon graduation and are capable of navigating and understanding the ‘big picture’ as well as small details in any business setting. Since accountants record, classify, summarize, interpret and communicate financial information, the skills learned in the contest can be applied to any company, even in international businesses. Hexco sets the standard for the UIL Accounting contest when it comes to employing the most qualified authors to write our invitationals that are later re-purposed as Practice Packets and sold the following season.
Alan Barkemeyer, author of Hexco’s UIL Accounting Packets, brings over 32 years teaching experience to include serving 24 years at Rosebud-Lott ISD. Barkemeyer has led his high school students to State in Accounting for 23 years resulting in 15 individual State championships (state record) and winning 17 team championship titles. His teams have always placed in the top 6. Barkemeyer is a four-time recipient of the Rosebud-Lott Teacher of the Year award and was selected as the 2009 Outstanding High School Teacher by the University of Texas Ex-Students Association and UT College of Education. Barkemeyer is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. Note: Since 1987, there have only been 7 perfect papers at State and 3 of Barkemeyer's students have had perfect papers at State, a record for one school.
FAQ: Do your Accounting tests include solutions for all questions? Region Packet 1 does not contain any worked out solutions as this is older than most of the products that we sell. Regarding all other Accounting Practice Packets and Invitationals (written by Alan Barkemeyer) solutions to calculation problems are included, however, there are no solutions for theory questions, multiple-choice, or true-false questions as these can generally be explained by the coach or by an advanced student. Some tests ask students to fill in a worksheet, and for these, the author does provide an additional worksheet with the answers filled in for grading.
