Hello Ms. Fountain,

I am enrolled in your Internal Control Certification series. I just took the quiz for lesson 9, and I do understand why the last question was marked incorrect.

Here is the question:
The IIA standards include a description of the responsibilities of the Chief Audit Executive to include all of the following except....

I answered "The CAE will report observations on fraud risks, governance issued, and other matters needed or requested by the Board"

This was marked as incorrect with this feedback:
"Incorrect. Reporting observations on fraud risks, governance issues and any other matters requested by the Board in considered part of the CAE's role."
Isn't that the question, and if so, the feedback does not support a marking of "incorrect".

Instead, the correct answer is "The CAE will review and approve the CFO's pay structure" I do not believe I have read this anywhere.

Could you please clarify?

Thank you!

Hello Marci

This question is a little tricky because of the double negative in the question. Notice the question states, "includes all of the following EXCEPT". The answer of reporting observations on fraud risks, governance issues another matters IS REQUIRED. So this would not be the right answer. The EXCEPT would be "The CAE will review and approve the CFOs pay structure". This is NOT something the CAE would do and that is what the question is looking for.
