Chapter 08 - Audit Sampling: An Overview and Application to Tests of Controls Chapter 8 has two objectives: (1) to provide an overview of audit sampling and (2) to apply sampling techniques to tests of controls. Although most students will have had a statistics course prior to taking auditing, we find that it is necessary to review basic statistical concepts. This helps to refresh the students' memories and to introduce the terms used in auditing to describe basic statistical concepts. Introduction We begin by asking the students why there is a need for sampling. Then we give the students an overview of the similarities and differences between statistical and nonstatistical sampling without getting technical at this point, and explain that nonstatistical sampling is now most common. We then spend a few minutes discussing how technology has impacted the need for sampling. [LO 1] Definitions and Key Concepts – Audit Sampling We start the presentation by defining audit sampling and then point out that when sampling is used, the auditor must be concerned about both sampling and nonsampling risk as discussed in Chapter 3. Audit sampling is defined as: The application of audit procedures to less than 100 percent of the items in a population of audit relevance selected in such a way that the auditor expects the sample to be representative of the population and thus likely to provide a reasonable basis for conclusions about

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
