"We have recently started using Accountest assessments along with other profiling products to support our recruitment process. We have found that Accountests gives us the opportunity to understand our candidates accounting ability, which no other product has done until now. It also gives us the opportunity to base further questions for the candidate around what we can see their ability is and enable us to make an informed decision."

Audit Senior / Audit Manager Test
Test for Hiring External AuditorsThe Audit Senior / Audit Manager Test is designed to assess the knowledge and understanding of candidates for roles that focus on auditing external financial statements in public practice accounting firms.
The test covers areas:
- Accounting Understanding
- Financial Reporting Standards (appropriate for both US GAAP and IFRS)
- Analytical Review / Interpretation
- Auditing Standards
As the test is designed to assess skills relevant under US GAAP or IFRS, it will be relevant in most countries. However, the test is unlikely to be appropriate for internal auditors, unless their work revolves around financial reporting standards.
- Time to complete: 30 minutes
- Number of questions: 40
- Question Levels: Basic = 13, Intermediate = 14, Advanced = 13
- Questions per topic: Financial Reporting = 15, Audit Review = 10, Accounting = 5, Audit Standards = 10
- Each test purchased allows you to test one candidate
When your candidate has completed the test you can use this Interpretation Video to help understand more about their test report.
