Further Explanation

This assessment requires students to apply their knowledge of the correct use of verb tense in writing. This knowledge is acquired through practice and experience using correct verb tense in writing. This skill should be developed with writing in all genres.

During the editing stage of the writing process, students further improve their draft and often prepare it for publishing by correcting convention errors. Ensuring that the standard rules of the Spanish language have been applied correctly helps the audience to more easily comprehend the information because they are not having to interrupt their thinking to determine what the writer intended to say.
standard rules of the Spanish language, including written mechanics such as punctuation, capitalization, spelling, paragraphing, etc. and written/oral grammar such as parts of speech, word order, subject-verb agreement, and sentence structure
Verb tense indicates when an action occurred or state of being. The three main/primary tenses in the Spanish language are past (indicating something has already happened), present (indicating something is currently happening), and future (indicating that something will happen later). When more than one verb appears in a sentence, the tenses must be consistent.
