A high-scoring essay must have five qualities.

What this means to me:
There are 5 important aspects of a well-written essay. You'll probably find that these are the same things your English teachers have been insisting that you include in all of your essays. First, you need a strong introduction with a thesis statement. Next, each body paragraph must have a topic sentence, and each idea should be developed with effective supporting details. There should be smooth transitions between ideas and paragraphs. Finally, you need to finish with a solid conclusion. Practice writing essays that include these 5 things, and you'll be well on your way to a good Writing score."

- probably from an sat prep website, but i don't remember.
