NextPage Inc. has announced that the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is using NextPage's NXT as part of a new, computer-based Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam. As part of the exam, candidates use NXT to find answers to case study questions, based on the library of accounting rules and regulations delivered to their computer at test centers nationwide. An estimated 250,000 tests will be administered each year using this new system. The computerized CPA exam is a joint effort of the AICPA, the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and Thomson Prometric.
In the exam, NXT delivers professional standards content from the AICPA and materials from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). Candidates use that content to find the accounting best practices and regulations to answer test questions. NXT is designed for commercial publishers that provide content on the Web or through other electronic media, and for publishers of corporate reference libraries that deliver information critical for decision making to employees and clients, such as accounting firms and organizations like the AICPA and FASB.
