Hi, I just took the CBEST Saturday December 6, 2008. I was wondering does anyone know how is the CBEST scored on the writing portion. Because I have gotten a 26, 33, and now its dropping to a 29 from my last three attempts. My weakness is usage and structure and conventions. I have work with a education professor with my writing. Compared to using the Jane Schaffer format I learn from High school. But he taught me the basic paragraph sturcture. the intro has 3-4 sentences, then the 3 bodies have 5 sentences each and then the conclusion has the same amount of sentences in the intro. Because I used the professor advise and he told me maybe that's why I have not pass the CBESt test. Should I take the computer test based and pay 106 dollars or just wait for my results. Undoubtly I will probably geta 29 AGAIN.
