Unity in Your TOEFL®
According the TOEFL® iBT Evaluation
Rubric an essay at the top level, displays unity, progression, and
coherence. As TOEFL® iBT essay reviewers use unity to grade your essay as a
criterion for evaluation then you need to be unified in your essay.
What exactly in simple words is
Unified means it develops one idea at a
time clearly. When you jump from one idea to another in an essay your essay lacks unity. When it
lacks unity it is downgraded by the evaluators on the examination.

is cohesive and
coherent and displays unity
and progression. The process of limiting your main-idea sentence for your TOEFL iBT writing
section has to be natural and quick. ESL TOEFL® iBT writers who choose a topic sentence that
is too broad, too general won’t have much success in passing the TOEFL® iBT Independent
writing test. And this is ultimately true for writing the integrated essay.
The structure used for paragraph writing
is essay main-idea topic sentence, paragraph-topic sentence, and supporting examples and details.
Your purpose is to show TOEFL® iBT examination writing evaluators that you can write a unified and
coherent essay. That you are capable of using specific reasons and examples to support your essay’s
main-idea topic sentence and then in each paragraph-topic sentence that follows and address the
task. In our example the task is to tell the reader which you prefer.
To write a unified essay that connects
the thoughts for the reader you start with making your list of supporting ideas for your
essay’s-main idea sentence. This concluding sentence gives the essay closure and the reader a sense
of completeness which is what a unified essay always accomplishes.
