250 In Spanish Written Essays

To score practice essays for your students, you can follow these guidelines:

The PTE Academic Write Essay task is scored on seven traits, each representing a separate aspect of essay quality. The most important trait is Content, it has the highest maximum raw score (3 points) and if the score is 0 (zero) the whole essay is scored zero, because no attempt was made to perform the task as required.

It is important to stress that the traits for PTE Academic need to be scored independently. Human raters can best achieve this by scoring all essays consecutively for one single trait at the time, i.e., first rate all essays for Content. Subsequently score all essays for the Formal requirement, next for Development, Structure and Coherence, and so on, till the last trait.

A test taker’s essay will not be scored on any trait and will be awarded 0 (zero) in the following cases:

  • The response is irrelevant to the prompt.
  • The response is not in English.
  • The response is written in capitals.
  • There is no written response.

PTE Academic reports all scores on the Global Scale of English (GSE). To compute the essay score add points over all seven traits and look up the final score in the GSE transformation table at the end of this document. The GSE is directly related to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (Council of Europe, 2001).
