Question: I heard that the communication portion of the CPA exam Simulations is graded primarily for writing style. Are they also graded for technical content?
Answer: You are correct that the exam graders are looking primarily at your writing style and skill. You are not being graded on content, per se, however only those writing samples that are generally responsive to the topic will be graded. If your response is off-topic, or offers advice that is clearly illegal, you will not receive any credit for the response.
