AICPA improves CPE online grading site

The AICPA has announced major improvements to its Online Grading Web site for CPE self-study courses. The upgrade of the AICPA CPE Online Grading site was done in collaboration with CPA2Biz, Inc., the marketing and technology subsidiary of the AICPA. The enhancements include a modern new design, improved navigation, new features to the exam, and a simplified login process.

The changes are based on feedback from a survey of over 2,000 users of the Online Grading site and represent the first significant improvements since the original site launched in 2003. Although survey results reflected general satisfaction with the AICPA Online Grading site, user feedback pointed to many areas for improvement. Eighty-percent of all AICPA CPE exams are taken online by self-study users.

Robert Bouchard, vice president, publishing, professional education and product development, AICPA says "We've listened to our online self-study exam takers and we have enhanced the Web site navigation, ease-of-use and core features. The upgraded site is now more engaging and user-friendly and in line with competitive best practices."

Among the specific enhancements to the exam user experience are: simplified login process; improved navigation; clearer direction on the ability to stop and start an unfinished exam at any time with auto-save; a final review summary page that allows exam takers to see all their answers in a condensed, easy-to-scan format before exam submission; feedback on incorrect answers for follow-up study upon successful completion of an exam.

AICPA CPE Online Grading is free and available for any AICPA self-study course in formats that include Text, DVD, and CD-ROM. You can see a full list of CPE self-study offerings.
