Test for Hiring Cost Accountants

The Cost Accountant Test is designed to assess candidates whose position will include providing cost accounting support to their organization. The test assumes a level of skill and competency that would normally be held by an accountant who is a member of their professional body, such as CPA, CIMA / CGMA, ACCA or similar. This test is also applicable to Non-CPA's but who have significant work experience in cost accounting.

The test covers four core cost accounting activities:

  • Variances - identifying, calculating and interpreting production variances
  • Implementation – costing methods and terminology
  • Practical Issues – dealing with real costing issues
  • Accounting – recording costing analysis including US GAAP

Gain insight into a candidate's skills and knowledge in each of these four activities, as well as a comparative overall score and performance against a norm group of other cost accountants. You can also identify a candidate's performance in the activities most relevant to your vacant role.

"I highly recommend Accountests to any firm looking to improve its hiring process. This resource has been an invaluable asset to our practice for discernment in hiring candidates. The tests provided by the website give us information that we cannot gather from an interview or a resume alone. It is a missing piece of the hiring process that has saved our firm thousands of dollars by preventing a mis-hire."
