The TOEIC Writing Test is the second part of the TOEIC Speaking and Writing Exam, which is different from the TOEIC Listening and Reading Test. So what's on the TOEIC Speaking Test? Read on for the TOEIC Writing details, provided by Nandi Campbell with Amideast.

Like the TOEIC Speaking exam, the TOEIC Writing Test is designed to measure a person’s ability to communicate in written English in the context of daily life and the global workplace. The test is composed of eight tasks and takes approximately one hour to complete.

The tasks in the TOEIC Writing Test are organized to support the following three claims about test taker performance:

  • The test taker can produce well-formed sentences, including both simple and complex sentences.
  • The test taker can produce multisentence-length text to convey straightforward information, questions, instructions, narratives, etc.
  • The test taker can produce multiparagraph-length text to express complex ideas, using reasons, evidence, and extended explanations as appropriate.
