The CAEL Assessment Writing

The CAEL Assessment Writing

The CAEL Assessment Writing Test is the last part of the CAEL test.

What is the format of the essay question?

You will see the essay topic at the beginning of the test.

All of the parts of the CAEL Assessment are on the same topic.

So, you can use information from the Reading Test and Listening Test to write your essay on the CAEL Writing Test.




What is a discursive essay?

The CAEL Writing Test is usually a discursive essay task.

Discursive essay topics ask you to do one of the following:

  • discuss advantages or disadvantages of a situation
  • agree or disagree with a statement
  • make an argument against or in favor of a claim

How can I improve my essay score?

The CAEL Writing Test question is shown to you when you begin the CAEL Assessment.

So, you should think about the essay question as you prepare the Reading and Listening Tests.

Your essay should be approximately two hand-written pages long.

You are allowed 45 minutes to prepare your essay.

You should therefore plan your essay carefully before you begin to write.
