Hint: There is a difference between compliance description and assessment result. Assessment results must be validated by evidence, compliance descriptions are not. See example below:

Compliance Description: AC-7: CRT application enforces a limit of 3 consecutive invalid access attempts by a user in a 15-minute period. The application automatically locks the account for one hour. The account must be released by an administrator to be unlocked before one hour.

Assessment Results: AC-7: Per interview and demonstration by the system owner CRT application enforces a limit of 3 consecutive invalid access attempts by a user in a 15-minute period. The application automatically locks the account for one hour. The account must be released by an administrator to be unlocked before one hour.
