well, as somebody who is just going on an interview that will include an
on-the-moment tech writing test, i am absolutely terrified of taking it.
i have never worked or performed well under those types of situations.
that is not to say that i don't perform well under pressure, it's just
that in those situations i have a better understanding of what is
expected. it's like taking the first test from a professor and not
knowing exactly what he's looking for. after you are comfortable with the
style and what is expected, i have no trouble completing a job to the
appropriate level and beyond. i think if you have a portfolio and
recommendations, you can make a fairly accurate judge of a person's
ability without an on-the-spot writing sample. my $.02.
