HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 14, 2011 ? Ross Roberts, assistant professor of accounting in the Phillips School of Business at High Point University, recently attended the American Accounting Association’s Research and Case Study Conference, held Jan. 6-8 in Atlanta.
The conference was held to foster effectiveness of instruction, encourage research in management accounting, and to increase opportunities for the interchange of ideas among members of the academic and professional community.
While there, Roberts was selected to discuss a peer paper, titled “The Influence of Social Identity on the Performance Effects of Relative Performance Evaluation.”
