      Undergoing testing on previously done activities and coming up with summary as conclusion would be probably based on the over-all result. It teaches the right way of constructing sentences with correct subject verb usage, punctuations and widens our vocabulary. Although, often communication gives a better advantage to writing because it involves proper pronunciation, to be easily understood with the accent and more ideas are conveyed-faster way of communicating. Manners are also observed while delivering a message so it shows a better perspective on how well good communication takes place.

      Taking lots of tests is not really the best way to learn good communication skills. The best way is to, well, practice communicating with people and learn from your mistakes. If you can't afford to make mistakes, take a class and learn from other peoples' mistakes. Taking tests is a good way to figure out where you need to improve, but test-taking by itself won't teach you much.
