Comparative Study on IELTS Academic and CET Writing
Although IELTS academic and CET are both English language tests for higher education students, their differences in the test module and band descriptor cause the washback effects in teaching and learning of English. Through the comparative study of the differences of the writing in the two tests, this paper tries to reflect on the possible washback effects of the band descriptor and scoring criteria on English teaching, and endeavors to explore the possibility to promote Chinese university students’ academic ability through English writing.
