Happy Memorial Day! :)
I hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday and enjoying some sun, bbq and family! I fortunately have today off, but had to work Fri-Sun. Fun times, I tell ya, fun times.
Well, it's finally here. Friday is the day I take the Praxis. I know I will be okay, but it's hard not to be nervous because it's an important requirement for being accepted into grad school. I have all the other requirements. I just need the right scores on this test!
The test is made up of three sections. Math, reading and writing. I've been mainly studying the math portion as I have always excelled at reading and writing. Although, this week I am going to write a few sample essays and need someone to read them and give me a "score". Then I thought, who would be better judges than you guys?! So, all this week I will choose sample questions from the book I am studying from and write an essay like what I will be asked to do on the real test. If you all would be so kind to read them and grade them for me I would be so grateful!
From the 71 topics I have to choose from I will chose a few to write a sample essay for practice. I will give myself 30 minutes to write the response. Each of the topics are opinion statements and I am asked to agree or disagree with the statement. The essays should be organized, include an introduction, a body that supports your opinion and a conclusion. The essays are rated on a 1-6 scale, with 6 being the highest score.
Look for my first essay either tonight or tomorrow! Thank you in advance, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
