Items following the statement of the writing task will address planning or prewriting activities relevant to the specified task and will be coded to the Planning, Composing and Revising reporting category. A rough draft of a response to the specified writing task will follow the planning/prewriting test items. The rough draft will be divided into sections. One section will have errors which require revision such as the inclusion of a sentence that does not belong or two sentences that need to be combined. Questions with this part of the rough draft will require the student to correct these errors by choosing the correct revision from the answer choices provided. These items will also be coded to the Planning, Composing and Revising reporting category. Another section of the rough draft will contain embedded errors in usage or mechanics.
