Responsible assessment can be defined as a continual process of gaining information by getting to know the child. All teachers should practice responsible assessment by using knowledge, skill, and disposition to address the needs of young children. Teachers assess children because it provides them the needed information to provided essential help to children with learning disabilities and needs. Assessment also gives teachers a guided approach to teaching that is fitted to each individual child. The purpose of assessing young children is not merely to learn about children, but to uncover and plan for their individual learning styles, behaviors, weaknesses, skills, and personalities. Teacher’s beliefs, efforts, and ethics should guide them to
I agree with you in your position because I too believe the CPA does not have to advise Ahi on its plan to earn interest on their $100,000,000 tax liability to the IRS by mailing the check from the U.S. Virgin Islands to create a float. Article seven, scope and nature of services, of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct sates that the CPA should observe the principles of the Code in determining the scope and nature of services provided (Colson, 2004). Ahi employee’s plan is not part of the CPA competencies in regards to taxation; the activity does not seem to be consistent with the CPA’s role. This plan should have probably been discussed within the finance or accounting department in Ahi Corporation.
When analyzing the different possible alternatives, Bill should think of his responsibility to the profession and follow the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants [AICPA] Code of Professional Conduct when choosing the correct course of action. The AICPA Code of Professional Conduct was formed to provide guidance and rules to all members of the AICPA, which constitutes people in public, private and general business practice. According to the Code of Conduct Section 0.300.010.02, “the Principles call for an unswerving commitment to honorable behavior, even at the sacrifice of personal advantage” (AICPA, pg. 5). Thus, per the Code of Conduct, Bill should not hesitate in disclosing the correct projections of receivables even if this decision might result in his personal loss. It is his obligation to be honest about the financial estimates and depict true and fair financial projections.
It’s good to know that she has learned many things from me and I never knew that I am a good supporter because I feel good to be close to those who are feeling depressed and low. However I am happy that I am with Deborah in her hard situations and to know that I played a unique role in her life.

At the end of the last century, accountants began to organize and become a profession as state societies and boards of accounting debuted. At that time a few companies began to issue financial statements; however, there were no established standards, codes of ethics, or generally accepted principles. Practitioners wishing to represent the economic reality of an entity had to rely on professional judgement. Over time, the profession evolved so that committiees emerged to address these issues, and practitioners voluntarily abided by their guidance.
Ethical issues and how to comply ethical standards are always concerned of all tax practitioners when conduct tax practice. They are subject to IRS Circular 230, AICPA’s Statements on Standards for Tax Services and relevant penalty provisions in the Internal Revenue Code.
After reading the discussion board forum I researched North Carolina’s Board of Licensed Professional Counselors website. I then searched for some North Carolina’s counseling websites to find local informed consents. The counselor that I found the most interesting is Robin G. Forgione, M.Ed., LPCS, NCC. I noticed she met most of the ACA code of ethics requirements and North Carolina’s entire requirements.
In the old NMC (2008) Code; Standards of conduct, performance, and ethics for nurses and midwives, stated it 'must not discriminate in any way against those in your care.' Holland and Hogg (2010) argue that nursing is to have a consideration of the cultural knowledge, to which they highlight nursing in Australia which has embedded a notion of multiculturalism. The Australian Code of Professional Conduct (2008) states that 'Nurses respect the dignity, culture, ethnicity, values and beliefs of people receiving care and treatment.' The revised NMC (2015) Code; Professional standards of practice and behaviour for nurses and midwives, state nurses should ' avoid making assumptions and recognise diversity and individual choice.' Making nurses aware
Ethics codes provide us with general conduct standards in which professionals are expected to adhere to. These standards are used to form a sense of unity and agreement within professional organizations. When I think about ethics, I believe it should be simple, but in reality, ethics are complex with multiple layers. Ethical codes are important to use as a guideline for acceptable behavior, but an ethics code will not be able to guide me with every situation. Because of this, it is important that I have my own personal sense of ethics and values. My ethical practice is based on my own values, cultural and religious beliefs, and practices. I tend to be a “heat of the moment” person. Ethics are important because I need a place to turn to when my personal feelings and emotions are clouding judgment.
I received your email in reference to feedback. I understand that you are looking for a comprehensive code of conduct framework which includes the three policies I have already created, standard policies that you feel should be included and additional policies that I feel are pertinent. This is what I have constructed for you. The Code of Conduct usually starts with an opening message or letter from the top CEO (‘s) of the company, briefly stating what the company’s vision or culture is.
This video representation of what not to do during an IFSP meeting brought up many interesting examples why it is so essential for professionals to follow a code of ethics. NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct sets a standard that should be made visible throughout any and every interaction a professional has with a child and their family. This video does not present that these professionals use this ethical code as a guide when they interact with the mother.
When looking at the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practice, there were some steps that Betty Vinson could have taken to avoid any of the punishments that were given to her. Before following any of the IMA’s recommended actions of recourse, Vinson should have referred to WorldCom’s recognized policies on ethical behavior and follow the actions that they have written and approved to take. If WorldCom’s executives still were demanding her to falsify the journal entries after following her company’s policy, then the IMA would state that she should have discussed the issue with your immediate supervisor or the next level of management if her supervisor was involved in the unethical activity. One important thing to note with this, however, is that “Contact with levels above the immediate superior should be initiated only with your superior’s knowledge, assuming he or she is not involved (Institute of Management Accountants, 2005).
The code of ethics and conduct is a written set of rules and regulations that provides guidance to employees of an organization on how to conduct themselves and carry out their duties in line with the organization’s principles.
