Subsequently score all essays when it comes to Formal requirement, next for Development, Structure and Coherence, and so on, till the trait that is last.
A test taker’s essay will never be scored on any trait and will also be awarded 0 (zero) in the following cases:
- The response is irrelevant into the prompt.
- The response just isn’t in English.
- The response is written in capitals.
- There’s absolutely no written response.
