Writing Task 1 – Marking Criteria

Marking in the writing test is more subjective in its assessment. In order to create a more objective marking system, IELTS uses an assessment criteria with each band level being marked against 4 criteria. Task 1 and 2 use similar criteria  being:

Task achievement (Task 1)
Coherence and cohesion
Lexical resource
Grammatical range and accuracy

In Writing Task 1, the assessment is about achievement. (Did you achieve the questions) Whilst in Task Response (Task 2), the assessment is about your response ( How did you respond to the questions)
