How a CPA Exam Question is Created
Get a behind-the-scenes look at how a multiple-choice question (MCQ), or item, is developed, from start to finish. Members of the AICPA Exams Team will pull back the curtain and share how we determine what content to include on the Exam, just how many people and subject-matter experts contribute to the development of an item, the careful wording considerations of each item, and more. Presenters will also be answering attendee questions throughout.

If you have questions around this topic, feel free to submit them on the registration form below, and our presenters may address them during the live webcast. You may also submit a question during the actual webcast.
