Rubrics for the speaking section include "effective use of vocabulary" and rubrics for the writing section include "appropriate word choice and idlomaticity" The speaking and writing sections of the test also require you to read academic texts and paraphrase or summarize them in your own words. As well as knowledge of academic vocabulary, you will need to be able to figure out the meaning of unfamiliar words by using context and applying knowledge of word roots, suffixes, and prefixes.
