Maybe I'm late to the party but just in case you all didn't know, the AICPA has changed how they will grade sims. In order to get (full) credit on a question, you must get the entire row correct. There is no more partial credit for question.
Just thought I'd share what I'm guessing I should have already known.January 25, 2020 at 10:47 pm #2902998damieFParticipant
Where did you get this info from? Can you post the link here? Thanks 😊January 26, 2020 at 1:01 am #2903061Biff TannenParticipant
A link to AICPA guidance would be helpful. Not saying that your post is bs, but some third party representation would be niceJanuary 26, 2020 at 2:55 am #2903088CPAHOPEParticipant
Huh? Dont scare me man where is your evidence?January 26, 2020 at 3:10 am #2903091PaulParticipant
I don't know if it's true or not but I seen it posted here beforeJanuary 26, 2020 at 9:27 am #2903187
This is a new one for me too – please post the AICPA link where you saw this. I don't recall this in the communications with the review providers, but that doesn't mean I didn't miss it 🙂January 26, 2020 at 10:58 am #2903259limousine ridin’, jet flyin’ son of a gunParticipant
If you are receiving this info from becker sim videos it is incorrect. I've asked about this before and I can assure you it is not true or else I woulda been murdered on FARJanuary 26, 2020 at 11:19 am #2903274
I do not have a link to any AICPA guidance. However, this is the the email that I received from Becker, in response to submitting a question about a sim. I tried to paste an image of the email but couldn't, so here is the text thread.
Subject: Audit: A1 M3 Simulation
Thanks for contacting us. There is no problem with the system.
The AICPA has informed us of how they are grading the SIMS. When a simulation has several columns, you need to get the ENTIRE row correct in order to get full credit. There is no partial credit.
The same is true for journal entries. You need to get both the account name and amount correct. Otherwise you don't get any credit. We adjusted our software to grade exactly like the CPA exam. Everyone will be graded the same way.
Let us know if you have any other questions.

According to the software, I answered B3 & B4 incorrectly. However, according to the answers, I got them correct. The software is marking them wrong while your answers are saying that I have it correct.January 26, 2020 at 11:21 am #2903277limousine ridin’, jet flyin’ son of a gunParticipant
Weird because Jeff has gotten info from AICPA that they do not count entire row. I asked about that maybe a year ago on here so maybe Jeff will ask again for an update 😀January 26, 2020 at 4:46 pm #2903661
I have reached out … we'll see what they say.January 26, 2020 at 5:33 pm #2903721
It's not true according to my (high up) AICPA source.January 26, 2020 at 6:08 pm #2903787January 26, 2020 at 6:32 pm #2903823
Sure thing. This seemed like too big of a change for me to miss the memo.January 28, 2020 at 6:30 pm #2906343TncincyParticipant
Jeff, can your source give us the answers to Far? We will study the answers to make sure we know how to get them. 🙂 I promise.
