Online Test Scoring Jobs

Most standardized tests have some kind of written or essay portion that requires a human element to be graded. Many of these positions are offered through companies as work from home positions. Because so many of these tests are seasonal though it really does not offer enough work to be considered a work from home job. Scorers can sign up with as many of the companies as they would like assuming you meet the criteria for each company. Once you are hired and trained you will receive an email when a test scoring session is coming up. You can then sign up for shifts that fit your schedule. Most shifts are four hours long but you can sign up for as many or as few as you would like or skip the scoring session altogether and wait for the next one.
