TASC Language Arts Writing Exam
Everything you need to know!
The TASC Test Writing contains 50-51 questions and lasts 110 minutes (including 45 minutes for Essay Writing). This test assesses your language skills, in alignment with the Common Core's high school standard of college and career readiness, in two different ways.
Expect to spend around 65 minutes answering 50 questions that assess language skills. These questions will target skills such as: constructing sentences, using grammar correctly, using words correctly, organizing ideas into paragraphs, and connecting ideas.
Then you will have around 50 minutes to write one essay in response to a passage or pair of passages. Students will be given one of two essay prompts: Argumentative or Informational. Students won’t know in advance which prompt they will be given. You will read the passage or passages and then write an essay that either argues for one side of a debate and against the other side or explains something from the passage(s)ons that support your answer to the first question.
