Amazingly consistent for a test that the AICPA insists is not curved! Jeff, in your interview of the AICPA they stated that "every candidate’s score is entirely independent of other candidates’ examination results". Doesn't this seem very misleading considering that the AICPA's description of the Item Response Theory seems to indicate that the weight placed on each question in scoring is based on how many other candidates got the question correct? Here is the AICPA document that states that "The difficulty of the test questions are determined through statistical analysis of the candidates response".: https://www.aicpa.org/BecomeACPA/CPAExam/PsychometricsandScoring/ScoringInformation/DownloadableDocuments/How_the_CPA_Exam_is_Scored.pdf
