The AICPA was suing KAPLI, a CPA review provider, for releasing test questions from a recent CPA exam that had not yet been made public. This month a settlement has been reached and the AICPA promises to dismiss all charges once the terms of the settlement have been met. In addition to the financial portion of the settlement, KAPLI has agreed to educate CPA test takers about the importance of keeping test items confidential.
I personally found this article interesting because I did not realize such a thing was happening and that examinees were leaving the test center with test questions. I also found that this relates to Professor Holtzman’s recent post questioning why smart people do stupid things. Clearly those involved in these cheating scandals cannot accurately measure their risks. What are your thoughts?
KAPLI is a Korean-language CPA Review Course.
