Readers Wanted!

We need qualified people to read and score student essays for the ACT Writing Test.

Essay scoring takes place online, facilitated by an Electronic Performance Evaluation Network (ePEN) System designed by Pearson Educational Measurement. This means you can read and score essays anytime and from any personal workstation with an Internet connection.

Writing Test essays are scored at intervals throughout the year. Compensation will be performance based. Scorers can realize $12/hour or more based on a combination of performance indicators, including quality and rate.

Prospective applicants will have the following qualifications:

  • A bachelor's degree or higher
  • Current teaching experience (preferred)
  • Experience teaching high school English to juniors and seniors (preferred)
  • U.S. citizenship, resident alien status, or authorized to work in the U.S.
  • Reside in the U.S.
