Every coin has 2 sides same ways in essay test if there are merits then demerits are also there so we will see demerits of essay test writing.
·        Limited sampling of the content: -
It means few questions can be included in given test. Example if in one particular book 18 chapters are given, teacher cannot ask question from all the chapters. They have to neglect some areas.
·        Subjectivity of scoring:
If all students are writing same answer of one question, why they get different marks? In essay test answer of question are scored differently by different teacher. Even the same teacher scores the answer differently at different times.
·        Halo effects:
It means teacher knows the particular student very well and has good impression because of his previous paper and writing skills.
·        Mood of the examiner:
The general feeling of all students after writing your S.S.C board paper what you had discussed with your friend. I hope the teacher who is checking my paper has not quarreled with someone”
·        Ambiguous wording of the question:
Sometime essay questions are so worded that students do not know the exact implications of the questions.
·        Examiner contaminated by various factors:
The examiner is contaminated by various factors like hand writing, spelling, grammar etc. some students who has good verbal knowledge may write many things on an essay topic.It requires an excessive time on the part of students to write while assessing reading essays is very time-consuming and laborious.
