3. IELTS writing marking criteria: Score High IELTS Writing (General Training Module)

By: English Insights

How your writing is marked. This is a writing answer sheet that you'll have in an IELTS exam. Look at the bottom of the page. You can see that there are four marking criteria used to assess your writing. The first criterion is task achievement for task 1 and task response for task 2. In task 1 it assesses if you answered all the instructions given in the question and how accurately you met the requirements of the question. For example, in task 1 the question paper says you should write at least 150 words.

To get a good mark in task achievement, you should do so. If the first task gives you three bullet points, then you need to provide a clear response that fully covers all of them. If the question in task 1 asks you to start a letter with "Dear sir," leaving you with no other options to start your letter with, then you should do so. Basically, task achievement is all about how accurately and fully you follow and respond to the instructions given on the question paper. In task 2 this first criterion 'task response' assesses if you answered the question, had a clear argument developed then supported, clearly gave your own opinion when asked and presented your ideas in a good structure. The next criterion is coherence and cohesion.

This criterion assesses how logically you present your ideas and how smoothly your ideas flow to reach a reasonable conclusion. In order to achieve a high score in this section, you should be capable of using many different cohesive devices such as using keywords, linking words, referent words and conjunctions. You also need to make sure to have paragraphs. Each paragraph should deliver one clear main idea. This criterion is all about how closely and tightly your ideas are linked together to present a convincing argument in a logical way. The third criterion is lexical resource.
