Job Description

Rater, Regular Part Time

At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.

Pearson is currently seeking experienced ESL teachers to work as raters for our spoken English tests. Our tests are fully automated and scored with speech recognition technology, but collecting human ratings is an integral part of our test development and validation process.

Human raters are able to work flexible hours entirely off-site, from home or wherever they have internet access. This position is project-based and the workload will vary considerably throughout the year. Successful raters should expect to be available for about 15 hours of rating per week, as needed, and will always be consulted prior to beginning work on a new project. The duration of each project may vary from a couple of weeks to a couple of months.

The first project will begin late June 2020, with a projected duration of 2-3 months.

Compensation:
Training hours as well as actual rating hours are paid at a rate of $25/hour.

Note:
+ Candidates must successfully pass the training session to qualify. Those who do not successfully pass training will not continue to the project.

+ This is an hourly paid, non-benefit eligible, part-time position.

**Qualifications**

Qualifications:
+ Native English speakers or high proficient non-native speakers of English

+ Master’s degree in TESOL or related field

+ 2 years relevant ESL teaching experience

+ Experience rating speaking tests

Technical/Hardware requirements:
+ Earphones/headset

+ Internet connection

+ Computer (PC or Mac)
