You will be assessed on your ability in four key areas:

There are two main parts to IELTS Life Skills. In the first part, you are expected to ask and answer questions on familiar topics.  
The second part is a combined listening and speaking task. You will listen to a task played on a CD. Completing the task allows you to show your ability to listen for both the general meaning and detail. You will say your answers, although you can makes notes on paper while you listen to the CD. There will then be a discussion on a theme related to what you have listened to on the CD.  

Additionally, at B1 level, there is also a task where you plan an activity with the other candidate.

At times during the test, you will be allowed to take notes to prepare your answers. The examiner will not mark your notes – only your speaking and listening skills are marked.
