During the course of the argument essay you will need to demonstrate your ability to write well, but more importantly you need to demonstrate your ability to dissect an argument, which further gives evidence of your skill as a discerning reader. Just as in the issue essay, there is more than one "right" answer. What matters most is that you demonstrate your ability to intelligently respond to an argument. You need to show that you can critique the provided statement, and you'll need to point out specific details and fragments in the provided snipped of text that you think support your claims. It is these skills that the GRE test takers are looking for.

The first of both sections is not computer adaptive, but the difficulty of questions that you'll be given for the second section is dependent on how well you did on the first section. The essay section of the GRE is composed on the computer, but both writing tasks are graded by trained readers.
