A. Standard time B. Standard hours C. Standard unit D. Standard performance
2. The best characteristics of a standard cost system is
A. standard can pinpoint responsibility and help motivation
B. all variances from standard should be reviewed
C. all significant unfavorable variances should be reviewed
D. standard cost involves cost control which is cost reduction
3. Standard costs are used for all of the following except:
A. income determination C. measuring efficiencies
B. controlling costs D. forming a basis for price setting
4. Standard costs are least useful for
A. Measuring production efficiency C. Job order production systems
B. Simplifying costing procedures D. Determining minimum inventory levels
5. To which of the following is a standard cost nearly like?
A. Estimated cost. B. Budgeted cost. C. Product cost. D. Period cost.
6. A difference between standard costs used for cost control and budgeted costs
A. Can exist because standard costs must be determined after the budget is completed.
B. Can exist because standard costs represent what costs should be while budgeted costs
represent expected actual costs.
C. Can exist because budgeted costs are historical costs while standard costs are based on
engineering studies.

standard costs do not.
7. Normal costing and standard costing differ in that

C. the two systems show different volume variances if standard hours do not equal actual
hours.
D. normal costing is less appropriate for multiproduct firms
8. When standard costs are used in a process-costing system, how, if at all, are equivalent units
of production (EUP) involved or used in the cost report at standard?
A. Equivalent units are not used.
B. Equivalent units are computed using a special approach.
C. The actual equivalent units are multiplied by the standard cost per unit.
D. The standard equivalent units are multiplied by the actual cost per unit.
9. The type of standard that is intended to represent challenging yet attainable results is:
