Test Development and Technical Information on the Writing Section of the SAT Reasoning Test™. Research Notes RN-25
Kobrin, Jennifer L.; Kimmel, Ernest W.
Based on statistics from the first few administrations of the SAT writing section, the test is performing as expected. The reliability of the writing section is very similar to that of other writing assessments. Based on preliminary validity research, the writing section is expected to add modestly to the prediction of college performance when critical reading and mathematics scores are considered.
