On the data side, we’ll be publishing more relevant information regarding long-term trending and aggregate-type summaries. The feedback we’ve received in the past from users about what they need to see to help them make business decisions has resulted in the creation of new sections for the book that will be implemented over the next two years. These data improvements will make the book more relevant for its user base.
In regards to delivery, we’ll be publishing the yearly book earlier than previous years and have also added additional releases of data snapshots in a variety of formats. Beginning at the end of this month, quarterly snapshots of data from the previous testing window will be available, and will be each quarter thereafter. In addition, the 2012 edition will be available by February 2012, approximately seven months earlier than previous years. From that point forward, candidate performance information will be available on a quarterly and annual basis in a variety of formats, such as ebooks, standard online reports and customized reports.
The Candidate Performance Book has become a staple at more than 200 different organizations and institutions, from college libraries to exam prep providers. We even see interest from parents and students who contact us, or their state board, for a copy in order to help with the decision of which college or university to attend.
Whoever the user, the Candidate Performance Book‘s reports and measures — and the way it shows how that data trends over time — make it an invaluable asset to anyone who has an interest in or is involved with the Uniform CPA Examination, and how those who take it fare in the process.
