Assess your writing ability, or that of your learner, to achieve a quiz score of 25 points.
Good writing achieves 5 objectives. It is purposeful, organized, concise, interesting, and correct.
To prepare for the quiz ...
Imagine you, or your learner (if you're helping someone), created a piece of writing consisting of 2 to 3 paragraphs with 3 to 5 sentences in each paragraph.
Based on your knowledge of your own writing skill, or that of your learner, determine how well the piece of writing achieves 5 objectives.
Grab a pen and paper and score each objective out of 5.
If you think an objective can be reached easily, give 5 points. If it can't be reached easily, choose a number from 1 or 4 that best represents how likely it is that the objective will be reached.
- The purpose of the writing obvious and it achieves its objective > Choose a number: 5,4,3,2,1
