How to say "a student essay"?

A simple text written of around 50 to 150 words for a foreign language class.

I found 論文 but I am afraid it means something longer, for more specialized fields like history, economics etc. And there is the translation 文章*, but it also means "sentence" (?).

*What is term for the most general form of writing or text

小論文or随筆or評論or感想文

と訳せるとは思いますが、いずれも微妙に意味が違うので、essayは「エッセイ」と記すことが多いです。

日本においては

essay={エッセイ}⊃{小論文、随筆、評論、感想文}

というようにessayにあたる訳語が多数あり、一対一になっていないので、文章の内容によって訳し分ける必要があるのです。
