Tips to Help Your Test Takers Succeed — Writing Test

Below are some helpful tips to help your test takers navigate through the writing test and review responses.

Remind test takers to review all responses once they come to the end of the test to ensure all questions, including the essay, have been answered.

The screen titled "End of Section – Time Remaining" is the last opportunity to return to the test and review responses. If the essay (Question 1) was skipped, the test taker MUST select "REVIEW" to go back and answer it. If they select "CONTINUE," they will proceed to the end of the test and will not be able to go back.

To return to the essay from the review screen, select Question 1 and then select "Go to Question." If any text has been entered in the essay, the status will show as "Answered." It is strongly recommended that test takers go back and review Question 1 regardless of the status.
