Was checking out a friend’s passmaster which they never used; only used Stalla for lectures The software said answer the essay question via the template. But it doesn’t let you type. Is it simply printing the template and doing it by hand… Or am I missing something? From the internet for their CPA Passmaster: Essay questions are not graded by the system. When an essay question appears, it will be graded as “correct” in your statistics automatically. Write down your answer to the question on a piece of paper. Then click on Show Answer and compare it with yours. Then click Next to move to the next question. If this is the last question in the session, click on End Homework.
