One for regular hours, one for bonuses. I am interested in scoring just math tests rather than reading or English. Does Pearson offer a lot of Math tests for scoring?
I guess to answer your question we will need to know your location. In some cities such as Austin they have lots of projects on site, throughout the year. Now, if you are talking about scoring from home, then I think you are making a mistake by only wanting math projects… I mean, the projects you can do from home are very few…. This would not be a problem but was just wondering if they actually do any kind of a background check on their applicants.
What position did you apply for? That is, they will make sure that your college degree was earned at an accredited college. Is the position always open? Because I have browsed their job openings, and there is nothing a on test scoring position. Any help will be greatly appreciated. No, it is not always open. I did not have a good experience with them, my colleague had the same experience with them. I was hired to score the middle school writing test in February, I trained, but did not pass.
I have scored many tests for ETS in the last four years and always pass so I know what I am doing We both tried to reach out to Pearson many, many, many times, by email and phone to no avail. We were never able to reach representative personally, and we got a generic email that did address our issues about a week after we first contacted them. Unfortunately Pearson does not set the criteria for passing the training to score a project.
There are also two projects that I was locked out of for scoring too fast. Even the rate and validity is set by the customer and not Pearson. Hello all I just completed an online application for the test scoring position. Can anyone tell me when I can expect to hear back from Pearson regarding the next step in the application process?
I am extremely interested in this opportunity, but from the comments I am reading it can take a really long time to hear back from them. Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated. Peak scoring normally starts in March. If there is a project, depending on the amount of people needed and your qualifications, you should hear something a few months. Its about a month or two months before the project starts. I just go my job acceptance email from Pearson today.
You do not have to reapply each year. They keep your information on file. We have all went to college…and the company produces some of those textbooks. Each project is different.
Some are very easy to score and some are very hard. I prefer to score Reading assessments—no brainers and much easier than writing assessments. You do get a raise once you reach a certain milestone of hrs. Some projects are degree specific…so make sure you stress your major. Pearson used to be known as Harcourt.
Great question Heather, I have been trying to find this information myself. Just completed a project and uncertain if I am eligible for re-hire or what that process looks like. As long as we keep accepting projects and doing well with them, we should be contacted in the future. This is my first time scoring with pearson. I was told if you see the out of work message to call in and they will put you on another project. I have been out of work twice and called and I have been moved to another project very quickly.
I do have a question for the seasoned vets though. How do you come back the next year to score? Do you have to reapply or do they contact you again? The deduction in responses scored the next day drops me below the incentives minimums. Lynda Turner, Thanks you for the tips on Oracle!
I hear you all! Seems so hard to recover from a low validity agreement score when initially the validity checks are far and few in between. Then I hope for more validity checks and am afraid of getting them. In math I have found some of the calibration and validity guidelines differ from the anchor annotations. This is my first week scoring reading. I feel like a failure, low validity.
I am using all resources but cannot seem to get it right!! It is so frustrating, because I am thrilled about the position. Anyone feeling the risk of losing their position? So I am under 20, but I also had no papers to score. Ugh, not feeling good after week one. It took me a while to get my validity up one time after I had a really wrong score, but I was able to bring it back up with time.
Kelly, I am right there with you. I am so disappointed with myself. Also, anyone had time disappear from your work day? There was an hour and a half missing in the Timesheet the next day.
Anyone understand how they do this? Two deposits were made directly to my bank…one was for my regular hours worked and one was for my bonuses. You can get a paid 15 minute break only if you work 4 hours straight without taking any breaks of your own in between.
You can add that time yourself in your Oracle time sheet section. Go to the time sheet that needs to be updated and change the time for the day to include your break time. You need to add a note in the box as to why you are changing your time. Click recalculate and then save. I am in the same boat. I have been calling scoring support to get a little clarification. Maybe a few tips. I have been on the phone, on hold, for 2 hours over the last 2 days.
I need to qualify, but am scared to do so until I get a little clarity. I am pretty sure I am going to bomb it at this point. Is anyone else having difficulty with their scoring percentage? I am surprised, because I have 26 years of teaching experience in this grade level, a masters degree, and I am a national board certified teacher. Can anyone help me figure this out? I would really like to keep this job.
I can use the extra money! Also, they only check some of your scoring. They only checked 11 of the ones I scored out of the I scored on one day. Hope that sort of helps. I am a year veteran in ELA education and am losing my confidence in my abilities. It is frustrating to take something so subjective and expect scorers to come up with the same scores when the information seems to contradict itself from one item to the next.
I would be more comfortable with a checklist. I logged into Onboard and completed all of those tasks and mailed in my I I even emailed human resources but no response as of yet.
Does any one have any ideas? It would be greatly appreciated. You will have to get your employee ID number that came in the email that told us about training. Unfortunately, the wait times have been huge with the start of the new scoring project.
Maybe get on the phone as early as they open. The website has specific information about requirements. I have a biology degree but just started scoring Algebra I as I have a strong background in math and feel very comfortable with the subject.
Completed my first day of scoring yesterday and hit all of my target percentages. My first day frustrations included the website being wonky and being down for a while, their computerized system not logging in my hours and items scored accurately, and there being long phone wait times for help. Hoping all of this will smooth out today.
Keep track of your hours worked as you can adjust your time card if needed. I enjoyed my first day despite the first day challenges. Not sure about other sections. Not sure if amount is different if scoring something else. Minimum is 20 hours a week, but can score up to 40 hours per week if you want.
I applied early March, received my offer about two weeks later. After I accepted I was sent an email with a list of tasks to complete.

Pearson Work at Home Test Scoring. By Anna T. Share 21; Tweet; Pin ; I’m scoring math which seems like it would have to be easier than scoring essays.
