Educational Testing Service

Freelance Contributor

Posted: 5/2/2018

Educational Testing Service is searching for highly qualified, freelance contributors to locate published materials for use on a high-stakes college entrance exam. Freelance contributors locate and submit excerpts from published science or social science writing that is suitable for a general audience. A master's degree with research experience in a scientific or social scientific field is preferred. Teaching experience and experience working with quantitative data are also preferred. Freelance contributors work off-site and are paid on a per-unit basis.

Interested individuals should find and submit a short (approximately 750 words) sample text that they believe would be suitable for testing critical reading skills. The sample should NOT be a self-generated piece of writing, but rather an excerpt from a published source. The sample should discuss recent experimental research in a scientific or social scientific field. It should exemplify writing that exhibits a level of complexity comparable to what would be encountered in college, and it should be engaging to an academically diverse group of readers. The sample will be used to evaluate the applicant’s potential for passage finding; it is not intended for possible inclusion on an actual test. The sample passage should be submitted along with a CV to
