The practice writing tests includes sample questions that illustrate the different types of questions you will see on the actual Praxis Core writing test. You will encounter four types of questions on this practice test.
Type 1 Questions
In each of the sentences of this type of question, four portions are underlined and lettered. Read each sentence and decide whether any of the underlined parts contained a grammatical construction, a word use, or an instance of incorrect or omitted punctuation or capitalization that would be inappropriate in carefully written English. If so, note the letter printed beneath the underlined portion and choose the corresponding lettered button. If there are no errors in any of the underlined portions, choose button E. No sentence has more than one error.
Type 2 Questions
In sentences of this type, some part of the sentence or the entire sentence is underlined. Beneath each sentence you will find five ways of writing the underlined part. The first of these repeats the original, but the other four are all different. If you think the original sentence is better than any of the suggested changes, you should choose button A; otherwise you should choose one of the other choices. Select the best answer.
Type 3 Questions
Questions of this type are based on a reading passage. Each page is divided into two parts. The top half of the page shows the passage. The bottom half shows the question that needs to be answered. Read each passage carefully and then answer the question.
Type 4 Questions
This type of single-question format presents a direct question or an incomplete statement. The answer options appear below the question.
Regardless of the type of questions you encounter, this is a test of correctness and effectiveness of expression. In choosing answers, follow the requirements of standard written English; that is, pay attention to acceptable usage in grammar, diction (choice of words), sentence construction, and punctuation. Choose the answer that expresses most effectively what is presented in the original sentence; the answer should be clear and exact, without awkwardness, ambiguity, or redundancy.
