Hi to all lrnasst members and S. Kanpik:
A while ago, a few members and S. asked if they could receive the results of
the survey I was doing of Canadian universities regarding whether or not they
had a writing competency test, and if so, what was its nature and role.  I
attach the results of the survey--the chart formatting may make it a little
difficult to read, I'm sorry, I don't know how to do it any other way.
 
A quick summary in prose: of 71 universities, 34 responded; 9 plus all of
Quebec HAS a Writing Competency Test; almost all use an essay question,
usually but not always a choice of 3 or 4 topics, often requiring an
argument, 350-500 words, to be done in 50-150 minutes, marked by one or two
people.  Details are in the attached chart.
