The Writing Objective Test
The Writing Objective Test is an un-timed, multiple-choice test of students' understanding of basic concepts in writing and of editing skills. It is also administered on the computer. No special computer skills are required to take the test. If you can type your name and point and click with the mouse, you can take the test. Complete instructions are provided at the time the test is administered.
What does this test measure?
The Writing Objective Test measures students' understanding of the conventions of American English in three major writing skills areas:
- Usage and mechanics (punctuation and grammar)
- Sentence Structure--the items in this category deal with relationships between and among sentence clauses, the management and placement of modifiers, and unnecessary shifts in construction.
- Rhetorical Skills--organization, strategy and style
