Writing of a literacy task

The task of literacy is the type of native language response that measures critical literacy and the ability to write concise, analytical text.

The goal is to study one or two base texts from the given perspective. There are different assignments, for example

  • analyze (= Specify)
  • investigate (= view)
  • estimates
  • Compare.

The assignment can also be reported with a question:

  • “How the author …”
  • “What kind of reader …”
  • “By what means …”


  • can be readable (subject to investigation)
    A. text or impressive text
    B. Fiction text
  • The native language test of the student diploma always includes Part A and Part B, and the candidate must answer one assignment from each group
  • Part A tests critical and distinguishing reading skills, Part B highlights interpretation skills
  • The same text may involve two tasks. So in the Yo-experiment, the chef writes at least two long answers (one from each section) or up to four short answers (two from each section)
  • You may also be asked to analyze an image or video (for example, in the case of a music video, the words of the song are given in the experiment)
  • the author may assume that the reader (teacher, reviewer) knows the base text, ie it is not worth to refer or describe it

The answer includes observations based on picking the bottom text; either by direct quotation (using quotation marks) or by self-explanation

  • Conclusions are drawn from the findings, and finally the base text is given a total interpretation

The answer is unified text, general language and style
The answer usually contains 4-7 copies

  • Response length is given in characters (including spaces)
  • The answer is not labeled

Getting Started Tip:

  • briefly name the author, the text and the type of text
  • Brings the assignment
  • Enter a general observation of the base text based on the assignment

At its best, the answer to the literacy task therefore includes observations, conclusions, and overall interpretation (= what the text communicates and by what means). Getting started is straightforward.

Sometimes (rarely) the literacy task is asked for a simple list. Even then, accurate reading is tested, and parts of the list should be full sentences.

NOTE! In the answer to the literacy problem, DO NOT get

  • tell your own opinions if they are not asked (eg “evaluate”)
  • go out to explain the content of the base text, if not requested (e.g. “referoi”)
