24 May 2014 admin
It’s really important to know the criteria you are being assessed on. There are four main areas.
- task response – this involves how well you answer the question
- coherence and cohesion – this involves how well you structure your essay
- lexical resource – this involves how many different types of words you use and how accurately you use them.
- grammatical range and accuracy – this involves how many different types of grammatical structures you use and how accurately you use them.
