The study of expertise and expert-development has been and continues to be a major focus of auditing behavioral research. This paper furthers studies of the evolution of auditor expertise by augmenting Russo's model of learning and expert-like behavior during performance of a field task to include observer assessments of the effect of the current task experience on an auditor's potential for expert development in the future.
