Tarleton offers the WritePlacer & Sentence Skills for the purpose of admission to the Teacher Education Program. If you have any questions about scores, please refer to the Teacher Education Program's website.

The WritePlacer measures your ability to write effectively via submission of a writing sample (essay). There are 20 Sentence Skills questions of two types: Sentence-correction and construction shift.

Please note that if a student passes one portion of the writing assessment (WritePlacer or Sentence Skills) he/she would only need to retest on the portion that was not passed.
