Abstract: The present study investigated the effects of two types of task planning; “task rehearsal” and “unpressured within-task” planning on Arabic-speaking learners’ written accuracy in English. The research adopted a longitudinal mixed methods approach to collect detailed descriptive data from a sample of 4 students in grade seven in one of ADEC’s schools in Abu Dhabi. The objectives of the research were to measure the effects of repeating the same task along with implementing the process of the “English Continuous Assessment Rich Task” (ECART) which represented the “unpressured within-task” planning. The data analyses of both “repeated” and “unpressured” written production were conducted by means of measuring the changes in the participants’ written accuracy in English. Data analysis was done by comparing the numbers and percentages of linguistic errors across all writing tasks. The results of both the “repeated” task and the “unpressured task” showed a significant improvement in the students’ written accuracy in English.
