The Writing Sample - Persuasive aims to display the writer's ability to use persuasive language in an internal correspondence. The final sample, in memo form, will provide an idea of the writer's skill level in providing justifications, communicating desires and using professional language toward the ends of persuasion. Because gauging writing skills is a highly subjective endeavor, we leave it to you to determine the level of writing effectiveness represented by the candidate's sample. We do believe though, that providing a controlled, immediate writing environment helps to assess the skills of the writer, in context. A scored, multiple choice, Business Writing test that focuses on such skills as brainstorming, grammar, organization, approaches to writing is also available.
