Unsupervised Internet Test of Second Language Writing Skills
The Unsupervised Internet Test of Second Language Writing Skills (UIT SLWS) is a self-assessment tool that evaluates the test-takers' ability to express themselves, in writing, in their second official language. It is self-assessed because the results will only be seen by the test-takers. The results are designed to help job applicants decide whether or not it makes sense for them to apply for bilingual imperative positions.
This test is only being offered to those who submit their applications to certain bilingual job opportunities that are advertised using the Public Service Resourcing System (PSRS). This test is available to applicants whenever the word “bilingual” is used to describe one or more of the available positions. No distinction between the various levels of bilingual job opportunities (i.e., A, B or C) are taken into consideration.
This test is an Unsupervised Internet Test (UIT) that is administered over the Internet in an unsupervised environment only to applicants who have submitted an application to a bilingual position. It is accessible anywhere the test-taker has access to a computer and an Internet connection.
The UIT SLWS is designed to assess a person's ability to express themselves, in writing, in their second official language and consists of 20 multiple choice questions.
The time limit is 60 minutes to complete this test, but it is designed to be completed within 15 to 30 minutes.
The UIT SLWS is self-assessed. Therefore, there is no minimum pass mark.
