A pioneering move was made by the Board of Accountancy in September, 1987, when a task force was commissioned to evaluate the performance of graduates of 408 schools, colleges, and universities in 20 successive licensure examinations starting May, 1977 up to October 1986. The study as completed strongly supports a common observation made by academicians and practitioners that the quality of the accounting graduates has deteriorated.
