4) Introduction to SAT’s Writing Section 1/2 – Multiple-choice Writing Questions

 

Multiple-choice writing questions

The multiple-choice questions assess students’ ability to:

– Communicate ideas clearly and effectively

– Improve a piece of writing through revision and editing

– Recognize and identify sentence-level errors

– Understand grammatical elements and structures and how they relate to each other in a sentence

– Recognize correctly formed grammatical structures

– Clearly express ideas through sentence-combining and use of transitional words and phrases

– Improve coherence of ideas within and among paragraphs

Multiple-choice writing questions are used in three areas:

 

1. Improving sentences

This type of question presents a sentence in which part, or all, of the sentence is underlined, followed by five choices of phrasing to replace the underlined section. The questions assess the ability to:

– Recognize and correct faults in grammar and sentence structure

– Recognize effective sentences that follow the conventions of Standard Written English

2. Identifying sentence errors

This type of question presents a sentence with four portions underlined. The student is asked to select which of the underlined portions represents a grammatical or usage error, or, if no errors are present, to select choice “E No error.” The questions measure the ability to:

– Recognize faults in grammar and usage

– Recognize effective sentences that follow the conventions of Standard Written English

3. Improving paragraphs

This type of question presents a passage and asks questions about the passage. Some questions refer to particular sentences or parts of sentences and ask the student to improve sentence structure or word choice. Other questions ask the student to consider the organization and development of ideas in the passage. This type of question measures the ability to:

– Edit and revise sentences in the context of a paragraph or entire essay

– Organize and develop paragraphs in a coherent and logical manner

– Apply the conventions of Standard Written English
