Nearly 6,000 took our online IFRS quiz in the first week

 09 October 2014


One week after the IFRS Foundation launched an online IFRS quiz, it was taken nearly 6,000 times by people in 113 jurisdictions. The quiz is a free-of-charge resource for students, educators and other interested parties to assess their knowledge of the use of IFRS, the IASB as well as the Standards themselves. The online quiz was developed by former IASB member Paul Pacter and draws upon information available from the recently published IFRS as global standards: a pocket guide.

Quiz participants are presented with 10 true or false statements drawn randomly from 220 possible questions. The quiz is instantly graded with answers and explanations provided for the answers shown. The first 5,991 quiz takers had an average score of 71 per cent correct answers, and spent an average of just over five minutes taking each test. Quiz takers may repeat the quiz as many times as they like, with a new selection of 10 questions each time.

Hans Hoogervorst, Chairman of the IASB, commented:

"The remarkable uptake of the quiz in just one week and from almost every country in the world provides evidence of the worldwide interest in IFRS."
