Inside This Assessment

Writing skills are an essential part of the overall communication process because expressing ideas through the written word is one of the highly coveted skills. A well-written piece can persuade and influence people in various situations and facilitate an open exchange of ideas and information. From writing a report, sales proposal or a marketing presentation to writing emails to clients, good writing skills ensure that the message is delivered effectively. Mercer| Mettl's writing skills assessment is an AI simulator specially designed to assess writing skills. 

This writing simulator auto-evaluates a candidate on four significant areas in an essay: coherence, grammar, spelling, and vocabulary. It also indicates the readability of the text written by the candidates. This writing ability assessment will help employers glean insights into candidate's writing skills, such as the approach taken to structure a mail or message considering grammar, vocabulary, syntax, and other nuances of the language. Poorly written emails and messages hamper the understanding of the information and create a poor professional impression on the receiver, which is why Mercer| Mettl's writing assessment test is instrumental in testing writing skills accurately and objectively. Moreover, it helps evaluate whether candidates can use appropriate language and style of communication that is relevant to the situation and the people being addressed.
