AICPA Launches Educational Competency Assessment Site
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) recently announced the creation of "The Educational Competency Assessment (ECA)" Web site. This site will provide resources to help educators integrate the skills-based competencies needed by entry-level accounting professionals.
These competencies, defined within the AICPA Core Competency Framework Project, have been derived from academic and professional competency models and have been widely endorsed within the academic community. Created by educators for educators, the evaluation and educational strategies resources on this site are offered for your use and adaptation.
The ECA site contains a LIBRARY that, in addition to the Core Competency Database and Education Strategies, provides information and guidance on Evaluating Competency Coverage and Assessing Student Performance.
Please note that registration to the site is required. You can take a peak at the site at http://www.aicpa-eca.org/
