From Jeff Layne
The Writing Center-CSU, Chico Student Learning Center
Dani Anguiano teaches her fellow students about the Analytical Writing portion of the GRE(Graduation Record Examinations), part of the standardized test that is an admissions requirement for most graduate schools in the United States. As she explains, the GRE Writing Measure consists of two timed essays that test the student’s critical thinking skills and ability to articulate an argument. Ms. Anguiano shares information about how the essays are scored, how to best prepare, how to tackle the exam question, and how to create an introduction, three main points, and a conclusion. Contact information for resources is provided, including where to find sample exercises and how to receive assistance through the CSU, Chico Writing Center.
