As a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), you have the opportunity to participate in a research study. The research study is being conducted by Dr. Trish Driskill and Ms. Theresa Tiggeman from the University of the Incarnate Word.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate an individual’s perception of ethics throughout one’s accounting career. You will be asked to answer a demographics questionnaire and a survey that you will scale based on your level of agreement or disagreement. It will take a total of five minutes to fill out the questionnaire and survey.
Participation is voluntary and you will complete the survey online, so that you can answer the survey questions anonymously, as no personal identifiers will be used in the study. There are no known risks in this study. You are not required to answer questions that you feel are uncomfortable. Also, you may stop the study at any time. There are no direct benefits for participating in the study. However, the results could expand our knowledge of ethics in the accounting profession.
We would greatly appreciate five minutes of your time to conduct our research study, as we feel strongly that the results will add value to the accounting research literature!
