The Academic Writing question types in IELTS for UKVI (Academic) are the same as in the paper-delivered test: 

In Part 1, you are presented with a graph, table, chart or diagram and are asked to describe, summarise or explain the information in your own words. You may be asked to describe and explain data, describe the stages of a process, how something works or describe an object or event.

In Part 2, you are asked to write an essay in response to a point of view, argument or problem.
