VPT English: Writing Skills - Overview

This section begins with a listing and description of the writing skills included on the VPT English assessment along with instruction to further illustrate the knowledge needed to do well on this section of the placement test. These skills will help prepare you to become a better writer and for college-level courses. It is suggested that you first familiarize yourself with the writing skills and the examples given. Then try the first of the four sample writing skills tests.

The answers that are given at the end of each test will clearly show how well you understand the material and what must be learned to score well on the actual VPT English test. Use these explanations to plan further study and improvement. Then try another sample test, review the answers, and improve the likelihood of an improved score on any test in the future.

With four sample tests in this program, a cycle of testing, reviewing, and improving can be repeated. Each cycle will improve your ability to pass each succeeding test.
