How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Yesterday I went with my school to the Cathedral of Santa Maria (in order) to know its architecture. We had to wear protective helmets (in order) to walk on the scaffolding since the building is under construction because it is being restored. The guide explained that the cathedral is from the 13th century but did not acquire cathedral status until 1862. Also, Ken Follet used it (in order) to write his literary works, for example, "The Pillars of the Earth".

Clever stuff happening!
