ScoreItNow!™ Online Writing Practice Service for the GRE® General Test
The ScoreItNow!™ Online Writing Practice service is a web-based tool that can help you sharpen your analytical writing skills and prepare for the Analytical Writing section of the GRE® General Test. Using our patented e-rater® technology, the automated scoring system provides immediate essay scoring in a confidential, risk-free environment.
This service lets you:
- Respond to GRE Analytical Writing topics created and tested by ETS test authors.
- Submit your responses online and get immediate scores on your responses from ETS's e-rater automated scoring system.
- Review scored sample essay responses on the topics you select.
- Review general suggestions for improving your writing skills.
- Receive diagnostic feedback on your responses.
The fee for the ScoreItNow! Online Writing Practice service is US$20, and entitles you to write two essay responses and receive an e-rater score for each. Plus, new bonus topics are now available: after you have submitted two essay responses for scoring, you will have the additional option to write and submit essay responses on six FREE bonus topics (three for the Analyze an Issue task and three for the Analyze an Argument task) for more practice. You will receive a score on each essay response that you submit on these bonus topics.
NOTE: Although performance on ScoreItNow! essay topics is not an exact predictor of how individuals might perform on the GRE Analytical Writing measure during an actual GRE General Test administration, users are encouraged to write the ScoreItNow! essay responses under timed conditions to get a better sense of how they might perform on the actual test.
