Pearson is responsible for many of the standardized testing across the United States. Many of these tests require some hands on grading that can not be done by a computer such as an essay or written portion. Pearson is often hiring teachers to work from home for these positions. Currently they are in need of teachers to work from home grading the edTPA exam. edTPA is a pre-service assessment process designed by educators.
edTPA Scorer Qualifications**
All scorers are recruited and selected because of their documented experience both with beginning teachers and with subject-matter content. The criteria for selecting and training scorers are rigorous and include: *
- Expertise in the subject matter or developmental level of the teaching field (degree and/or professional experience); *
- Teaching experience in that field (or experience teaching methods courses or supervising student teachers in that field); and *
- Experience mentoring or supervising beginning teachers, or administering programs that prepare them. **
edTPA Scorer Commitment**
Scorers must complete a training curriculum that includes about 19 to 24 hours of online modules, interactive web-based sessions, and scoring of several qualification portfolios. In addition to completing the training, scorers are expected to score a minimum of 8 edTPA portfolios within a month depending on the number of submissions. Scoring hours are flexible. Portfolios are available for scorers to score at their convenience; the average time to score a portfolio is approximately 2 to 3 hours. Scorers are compensated for training time and for portfolios scored.
