The Writing Sample - Technical Writing [Paragraph Form] aims to display the writer's ability to organize and present information in a technical context. The final sample will provide an idea of the writer's skill level in communicating instructions to users clearly and concisely. 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.
