Is the CLEP English Composition w/Essay a computer based or a paper based test. I write numerous reports, proposals, and other business documents on a regular basis. I use a computer and find it easy to correct meandering thoughts, etc. by using the cut and paste function in my word processor. I do not write as well on paper. Also if I take the test and have the results sent to Excelsior where they have a less stringent passing score than COSC, will COSC accept the grades given by Excelsior?
