These instructional materials are designed to elicit debate about the primary accounting qualities of relevance and reliability, and to encourage you to consider how these qualities are linked to the debate over earnings quality. The case material comprises two narrative essays, which elicit divergent views about relevance and reliability, and several discussion questions. You will use these essays and discussion questions as the foundation for a discussion and building a deeper understanding of earnings quality, through extensive inquiry of fundamental financial accounting concepts.
