What are students required to do on the Georgia High School Writing Assessment?

Students must write a persuasive essay on an assigned topic. Trained professionals independently judge each essay on four qualities or "domains" of effective writing: content/organization, style, conventions of written language, and sentence formation. In the overall score for an essay, content/organization counts for twice as much as the other three domains.
