The Assessment Tool comprises 10 pairs of writing assessment tasks.
These tasks:

  • relate to the kinds of writing demands that most adult learners encounter
  • are short or shortish, and should be able to be completed within 25 minutes by most adults
  • can be undertaken on a word processor, or in print
  • use a range of contexts to provide different options for different learners (age, gender, interests)

Any of the task instructions may be read to the learner. It is their writing that is being assessed, not their reading.
