Why did we remove the choice of prompts in the writing and speaking samples?

Beginning January 17th, 2022, test takers will no longer choose which topic they would like to respond to for the Writing Sample and Speaking Sample. They will be given one prompt for each and must speak or write about those topics.  

This change is being made to help ensure fairness for all test takers. In addition, we have done a thorough review of all writing sample and speaking sample prompts to ensure that every test taker can effectively answer them.
