This Company’s Hiring People To Grade Tests From Home


When it comes to grading standardized tests, it’s pretty clear that machines have the Scantron grading covered. But what about the sections of tests, such as written essays and personal statements, that don’t involve filling in a bubble with your pencil?

That’s where a company like Measurement, Inc. comes in. The North Carolina-based company helps schools, government bodies and other organizations administer and grade tests. And now the company is in search of seasonal, part-time test graders to help get this job done.

Readers Needed

Measurement is looking for Reader/Evaluators to be placed into its qualified reader pool for upcoming spring projects (spring is a busy period, as that’s when many school districts administer tests).

According to the job listing, the projects “require readers to score essays for content, organization, grammatical conventions, and/or the student’s ability to communicate and to respond to a specific directive. Other projects involve scoring test items in reading, math, science, social studies, or other subject areas.”

Since each project has its own scoring criteria, Reader/Evaluators are trained at the beginning of each project.

Starting pay is $11.70/hour, and the listing notes that evaluators are eligible for pay raises following “experience and proven performance.” Given the nature of this job, confidentiality on the subject matter is required, and it sounds like start dates and duration of projects will vary.

Here are the job requirements:

  • High-speed internet
  • Safe and secure work area
  • Bachelor’s degree
  • You must pass a placement test
  • You must complete a professional reference check and interview
  • You must be able to work in the U.S. legally

How To Apply

Does this work-from-home job sound up your alley? Head over to the online application where you’ll be asked to upload your resume and answer a series of questions about your eligibility based on your level of education (a bachelor’s degree is required), your computer skills, internet connection, subject preferences and availability.

Though they’ve already filled the positions for 2017, you can apply now for next year’s busy season.
