This is an excellent opportunity for ESL practitioners to gain insights and practical experience in the field of language assessment. 


    The Graduate Student Instructor Oral English Test is a performance test that assesses the English-language proficiency of prospective Graduate Student Instructors at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, whose undergraduate education was at an institution in which the language of instruction was not English. Each test takes approximately 25-30 minutes to complete. All examiners must participate in training and certification prior to administering tests. Examiners facilitate test administration in compliance with set CaMLA protocols, score candidate performance in accordance with set rating scale criteria, set up audio-recording equipment, pick up and return testing materials to CaMLA offices, and complete post-administration reports and paperwork.


    Examiners must be willing to commit to 2-hour testing blocks during regular office hours.  The majority of testing takes place in the following time periods:

    ·          August-September

    ·          November-December

    ·          March-May

    Desired Qualifications:

    ·          Master’s degree in TESOL, Language Testing, Linguistics, or a related field

    ·          3 years of experience teaching oral skills to ESL/EFL students in a higher education setting

    ·          3 years of experience assessing oral communication

    Desired Skills:

    ·          excellent language awareness and oral and written communication skills in English;

    ·          attention to detail;

    ·          flexibility; and

    ·          ability to work as a member of a team.

    Compensation: $20/test administration


    Training will begin as soon as possible, in time for the August test administration. For more information, please contact Kristin Erin Graw at

    All positions are filled. (4/21/14)

    The English Language Center at Michigan State University is looking for ESL professionals with MA TESOL or equivalent degrees to join our team of essay raters for our growing testing program.

    What:         Rate 125-200 essays; pay is HIGHLY competitive

    When:        June 2014

    How:          Online through a secure login from the ELC at MSU

    Test administration, essay rater orientation and essay rating are done under the supervision of Dr. Daniel J. Reed, Head of Testing and Certification for the English Language Center and Center for Language Teaching Advancement at Michigan State University.  ELC Writing Assessment Coordinator Andrew S. McCullough will conduct the rater orientation at the MSU campus for new raters on May 24, with recalibration (norming) for all raters online prior to rating the essays in June.  Once a rater has undergone orientation to our system, recalibration for each new rating session will be the only requirement.  Rating is performed online on your own computer.

    Our program is growing steadily!  This is your opportunity to earn extra cash, use your expertise to contribute to this exciting initiative at MSU, and build your résumé as an experienced test rater.

    If you are interested in rating essays, please email Andrew S McCullough at at your earliest convenience.  Please include an attachment of your résumé or CV.  A résumé is preferred.  Andy will contact you with details re: orientation and rating.  For further information, call him at 517-884-1506, or send an email.

    We’re looking forward to working with you!

    Note:  Essay rating takes place twice a year.  This ad is not for full time or part time positions, but rather to recruit experience ESL professionals to become part of an essay rating team that will be called upon on to rate essays twice a year, corresponding to test administration dates.  As stated above, this June 2014 opportunity would allow you to rate between 125 and 200 essays, depending on how many test-takers actually take the test and the size of our rater pool when we complete orientation and recalibration.  Thanks for your interest.
