  1. To do an audit, there must be information in a verifiable form and some standards (criteria) by which the auditor can evaluate the information. Determining the degree of correspondence between information and established criteria is determining whether a given set of information is in accordance with the established criteria. For an audit of a company’s financial statements the criteria are U.S. generally accepted accounting principles or International Financial Reporting Standards.

 

  1. The four primary causes of information risk are remoteness of information, biases and motives of the provider, voluminous data, and the existence of complex exchange transactions.

The three main ways to reduce information risk are:

 

  1. User verifies the information.
  2. User shares the information risk with management.
  3. Audited financial statements are provided.

  • GAO auditors perform compliance or operational audits in order to assure the Congress of the expenditure of public funds in accordance with its directives and the law.
  • IRS agents perform compliance audits to enforce the federal tax laws as defined by Congress, interpreted by the courts, and regulated by the IRS.

    1. The population is all students enrolled in the accounting class.
    2. The value 3.29 represents the population parameter since we are not choosing a sample but drawing results from the actual population.

Solution Manual for Business Research Methods 12th Edition by Cooper

Research refers to the outcome of human desire to investigate and deeper understanding of existing phenomena or find out the possibility of occurrence of a new phenomenon. Research is the starting point in any discipline. It is the key to the success and growth of any discipline.
Research refers to the process of defining the research problem and collecting, organizing, evaluating and interpretation of data and making a conclusion to solve the research problem. Therefore, business research refers to the process of identifying the opportunities and threats in the market and analyzing the strengths and weakness of the company to fulfill the requirements of the market and to compete. An example of business research is studying the buying behavior of North USA population who are below 30 years. Such a research will be helpful for a business to sell their goods/products effectively. Hence a business research is useful.
There should be any questions about the business research because the definition helps to guide the researcher on the path of his research and the purpose of his research. It is important because there are many definitions of research which guides or fulfill different purposes of research. A GEM of a Study Abstract: The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Entrepreneurial Assessment, a joint project of The Kauffman Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership at Babson College (now Arthur M. Blank Center for Entrepreneurship) and The London Business School, has undertaken a long-term, large-scale project to prove the causal links between a government’s economic policies and initiatives, the resulting entrepreneurial activity and subsequent economic growth. This case describes multiple-stage research, including thousands of interviews in several countries by established research firms.  How/When to Use This case deals with the concept of causal studies vs. descriptive studies and what needs to be included in the research design of each study type. It also deals with what constitutes control in research design; in this context it is best used with chapters 5 and chapter 6 although it may be used with chapters 6-9. This is also a great case to use to discuss constructs vs. concepts (Chapter 3), as Exhibit C-GEM-1.1 clearly has struggled with defining numerous constructs and multiple-measurement variables and, therefore, could be used to further explore text Exhibit 3-1. The case also mentions the use of standardized data; in this context you could use the case to explore how “standardized” data from different countries really is and where the student seeks such country-specific data.

Descriptive Statistics   Case Problem:  Heavenly Chocolates Website Traffic  
  1. Descriptive statistics for the time spent on the website, number of pages viewed, and amount spent are shown below.
 
Time (min) Pages Viewed Amount Spent ($)
Mean 12.8 4.8 68.13
Median 11.4 4.5 62.15
Standard Deviation 6.06 2.04 32.34
Range 28.6 8 140.67
Minimum 4.3 2 17.84
Maximum 32.9 10 158.51
Sum 640.5 241 3406.41
  The mean time a shopper is on the Heavenly Chocolates website is 12.8 minutes, with a minimum time of 4.3 minutes and a maximum time of 32.9 minutes.  The following histogram demonstrates that the data are skewed to the right.   The meannumber of pages viewed during a visit is 4.8 pages with a minimun of 2 pages and a maximum of 10 pages A histogram of the number of pages viewed indicates that the data are slightly skewed to the right.       The mean amount spent for an on-line shopper is $68.13 with a minimum amount spent of $17.84 and a maximum amount spent of $158.51.  The following histogram indicates that the data are skewed to the right.    
  1. Summary by Day of Week
 
Day of Week Frequency Total Amount Spent ($) Average Amount Spent ($)
Sunday 5 218.15 43.63
Monday 9 813.38 90.38
Tuesday 7 414.86 59.27
Wednesday 6 341.82 56.97
Thursday 5 294.03 58.81
Friday 11 945.43 85.95
Saturday 7 378.74 54.11
Total 50 3406.41 68.13
  The above summary shows that Monday and Friday are the best days in terms of both the total amount spent and the averge amount spent per transaction. Friday had the most purchases (11) and the highest value for total amount spent ($945.43). Monday, with nine transactions, had the highest average amount spent per transaction ($90.38).  Sunday was the worst sales day of the week in terms of number of transactions (5), total amount spent ($218.15), and average amount spent per transaction ($43.63). However, the sample size for each day of the week are very small, with only Friday having more than ten transactions. We would suggest a larger sample size be taken before recommending any specific stratgegy based on the day of week statistics.  
  1. Summary by Type of Browser
 
Browser Frequency Total Amount Spent ($) Average Amount Spent ($)
Firefox 16 1228.21 76.76
Chrome 27 1656.81 61.36
Other 7 521.39 74.48
  Chrome was used by 27 of the 50 shoppers (54%).But, the average amount spent spent bycustomers who used Chrome ($61.36)is less than the average amount spent by customers who used Firefox ($76.76) or some other type of browser ($74.48). This result would suggest targeting special promotion offers to Firefox users or users of other types of browsers. But, before recommending  any specific strategies based upon the type of browser, we would suggest taking a larger smaple size.
