Assessment Instructions

Conduct a literature review to identify current trends in research about the “audit expectation gap” in financial statement auditing.  Your literature review does not have to identify every possible research trend in this area.  You can choose to focus on one particular strand of research relating to the audit expectations gap if you have the literature to support your discussion.  Alternately, you can discuss more than one trend with the support of your identified research articles.
Your literature review should contain from five to eight articles from academic (not professional body) journals. Your journal articles should include original research and not be published literature reviews or a synthesis of the literature.
You should review the Help with referencing and presentation book and your Preassignment access quiz prior to preparing this assignment.
