If you are using the Rocket Languages app, you will, you will see in the testing area a total of 6 icons. The second icon (a pencil) is for Write It in Pinyin, while the 6th icon (also a pencil) is for Write It (Extra) which tests you on the Simplified Chinese instead.
If you are using the desktop version, you can find second Write It under "Extra Testing" below the regular tests on the page.
I hope that helps!

I have found that I can type plenty of correct Chinese words by just sounding out the pinyin and then recognizing the correct character from my phone's suggestion. But with a pen and paper I'd probably struggle to write more that 10 characters. I think i may start using google pinyin's handwriting input instead to burn the characters into my head better.
