Definition
What is the best description of "tolerable misstatement" for meanperunit estimation? A) The maximum misstatement that may exist without causing an account to be materially misstated. B) The "bounds" around the sample mean that we would expect the value to fall within to be correct. C) The "projected" misstatement in the population based upon the sample chosen. D) The upper limit (or lower limit for liabilities) of asset values for which the book value may exceed that sample mean without being materially misstated 


Term
C) An amount used to calculate the "bounds" around the sample mean that we would expect the value to fall within to be correct 

Definition
What is the best description of a planned allowance for sampling risk under meanperunit estimation? A) The projected misstatement in the population based upon the sample chosen. B) The maximum misstatement that may exist without causing the financial statements to be materially misstated. C) An amount used to calculate the "bounds" around the sample mean that we would expect the value to fall within to be correct. D) The upper limit (or lower limit for liabilities) of asset values for which the book value may exceed that sample mean without being materially misstated 


Term
A) Conclude the book value is materially misstated and the projected misstatement is $150,000 

Definition
In the course of auditing accounts receivable, the auditors calculated the estimated total audited value ($3,100,000), the allowance for sampling risk ($100,000), and the tolerable misstatement ($175,000). If the book value of accounts receivable is $3,250,000, what is the audit conclusion and projected misstatement? A) Conclude the book value is materially misstated and the projected misstatement is $150,000. B) Conclude the book value is materially misstated and the projected misstatement is $50,000. C) Conclude the book value is not materially misstated and the projected misstatement is $150,000. D) Conclude the book value is not materially misstated and the projected misstatement is $50,000. 


Term
C) When differences between book and audited values are frequent 

Definition
When are the ratio estimation and difference estimation techniques most likely to be preferable to the meanperunit estimation method? A) The choice between any of the methods method is irrelevant, since they all provide similar results. B) When differences between book and audited values are infrequent. C) When differences between book and audited values are frequent. D) When differences between book and projected misstatement is estimated to be small. 


Term

An audited sample of 50 accounts resulted in the following mean values: Book value of $38.00 Audited value of $39.20 What is the estimated total audited value using mean per unit sampling? A) $38,000 B) $38,776 C) $39,200 D) $41,200

Term
A) Control risk, inherent risk, and risk related to other substantive procedures 

Definition
In determining the sample size using a structured nonstatistical sample, the reliability factor used takes into consideration the auditor's assessment of? A) Control risk, inherent risk, and risk related to other substantive procedures. B) Control risk and detection risk. C) Control risk and inherent risk. D) Detection risk. 


Term
B) In nonstatistical sampling the level of risk is not formally quantified, instead auditors use their professional judgment 

Definition
What is the major difference between statistical and nonstatistical sampling in substantive testing? A) In nonstatistical sampling the determination of the sample size is ad hoc based upon the auditors' professional judgment. B) In nonstatistical sampling the level of risk is not formally quantified, instead auditors use their professional judgment. C) The results of nonstatistical sampling are not as reliable as those in statistical sampling. D) Nonstatistical sampling uses more randomized methods for sample selection and thus is more reliable. 


Term
C) The auditor would conclude that the risk is high that the account is materially misstated 

Definition
If the projected misstatement in nonstatistical sampling is $95,000, while the tolerable misstatement is $100,000, what would an auditor likely conclude? A) Since the projected misstatement is less than the tolerable misstatement, the auditor would conclude the account is not misstated. B) Since the projected misstatement is less than the tolerable misstatement, the auditor would conclude the account is misstated. C) The auditor would conclude that the risk is high that the account is materially misstated. D) There is not enough information to answer this question.
