Blank Sheet of Paper Experience

Students must rely on their own content knowledge when taking exams. There’s no “easy out” during test time, so why should there be during homework? The Blank Sheet of Paper Experience used for journals, ledgers and financial statements, helps prevent overreliance on the system by empowering students to problem-solve on their own.
