How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Like every year, I must choose my Hallowe'en costume. And it's not always easy, because everyone wants to be trendy, but we hate to be the tenth clown in the room! Today, I decided to dress up as a zombie. My friend Rachel is a very good make-up artist and she drew scars all over my face. She also used some pieces of plastic to create fake rotten skin. Disgusting, right? I'm going to scare everyone!

Clever stuff happening!
