About the International Standards on Auditing test

The audit process is essential for any business or organization to ensure a true and fair presentation of its financial information. Finding candidates with expertise in the International Standards on Auditing (ISA) will help you ensure that this critical process is performed in an efficient, ethical, objective, and legally-compliant manner.

This ISA test evaluates candidates’ proficiency with International Standards on Auditing, which provide guidance on the objective and general principles governing an audit of financial statements. The test examines candidates’ ability to provide guidance to the audit and accountancy firms regarding the appropriateness of accepting an audit and assurance engagement; the planning and execution of audit and assurance activities; and the formation of opinions on the business affairs and financial statements of their clients.

This test has been designed to assess the knowledge and ability of a candidate to take the most suitable actions regarding planning and performing an audit and assurance activity and to form the most appropriate opinions.

The ISA test ensures that successful candidates are a good addition to the audit team of your organization and possess the required skills to plan and execute audits and related assignments effectively.

What our customers are saying

TestGorilla helps me to assess engineers rapidly. Creating assessments for different positions is easy due to pre-existing templates. You can create an assessment in less than 2 minutes. The interface is intuitive and it’s easy to visualize results per assessment.

Review from G2

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
