    ESSAY RATERS NEEDED!

    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 150-250 essays; pay is HIGHLY competitive

    When: May 2016

    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, and Dr. Heekyoung Kim, Assessment Specialist.  ELC Assessment Coordinator Andrew S. McCullough will conduct new rater orientation at the MSU campus on May 21. All raters must complete online recalibration (norming) during the week of May 23, the week following orientation.  Rating will continue into June.  Once a rater has undergone orientation to our system, recalibration will be the only requirement for each new and future rating session. (Raters must perform according to ELC standards in order to be considered for continuing rating opportunities.) 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 program at MSU, and build your résumé as an experienced test rater.

    If you are interested in rating essays, please email Dr. Heekyoung Kim at msu-exams@elc.msu.edu at your earliest convenience.  Please include an attachment of your résumé or CV.  A résumé is preferred.  Dr. Kim will contact you with details re: orientation and rating.

    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 experienced 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 May 2016 opportunity would allow you to rate between 150 and 250 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.
