In this essay I am writing about that school should be extended for five year.
I think that school should be extended for five year because it will help you
how you are educate. The school for five year will help you a lot when you
are doing something. The school for five year could help you in most
everything that you are doing. I think that if you go to school for five years
you could learn a lot of skills. School could help you out of most anything
that you want to do in this world. School could teach you how to be educator.
By going to school is a good thing because if you go to school it could help
have experience in everything that you are doing. To have experience you to
do that thing you do best and how well you do at it. I think that school could
teach you how to have experience in everything you are doing. I know that
to go to school you have to choice to go to school because nobody can make
you go to school. I know that school are not for everyone but I think that

every children should go to school because if you don't go to school you will
not be educate. I know that when you have an education it is a good thing.
School is a place where you could learn a lot of different that you don't know.
I know that I learn a lot of thing I didn't know but I know them. By going to
school you make new friends, and you see

a lot of different people like people that is not from the United States. At
school you do classwork and do all type of assignment your teacher told you
to do. I believe that every students should want to be educator because you
need education in this world. School shouldn't be a place where students
fights. I think that every students should like going to school.

Scoring Explanation
This essay shows little skill in responding to the writing task.
While the writer takes a position on the issue in the beginning of the essay (I
think that school should be extended for five year because it will help you
how you are educate), the rest of the discussion does not convey reasons to
support that position. Instead, the writer minimally develops many different
ideas about school in general, repeating ideas rather than explaining them
(School is a place where you could learn a lot of different that you don't
know. I know that I learn a lot of thing I didn't know but I know them). At
times, statements supporting claims are not understandable (By going to
school is a good thing because if you go to school it could help have
experience in everything that you are doing. To have experience you to do
that thing you do best and how well you do at it).
There is no discernable organization to the essay other than a minimal
introductory statement: ideas are not logically grouped, no transitions are
used, and no conclusion is offered. Sentence structure and word choice are
consistently simple, with sentences repeatedly beginning with, "I think" or "I
know."
Language usage errors are frequently distracting and contribute to difficulty
understanding some

n.
1590s, "short non-fiction literary composition" (first attested in writings of Francis Bacon,
probably in imitation of Montaigne), from Middle French essai "trial, attempt, essay," from Late
Latin exagium "a weighing, weight," from Latin exigere "test," from ex- "out" (seeex-)
+ agere (see act) apparently meaning here "to weigh." The suggestion is of unpolished writing.

from essai (see essay (n.)). This sense has mostly gone with the divergent spellingassay.
