Pop Quiz: What’s Measurement Inc.?
Good news: No kinked-up tape measures are involved at Measurement Inc.
Rather, this company might have been your worst nightmare throughout grade school. The educational company issues achievement tests and scoring services for state government and other testing companies.
But it can be your friend now — a friend who pays you at least $11.70 an hour.
How to Get Paid to Grade Tests — From Home
The company needs readers/evaluators to sign up for the upcoming spring 2017 rush. The work is temporary and project-based.
Many projects require evaluators to score essays based on content, organization and grammar. Other projects are in the math, science or social studies realm.
To properly grade each project, you might get scanned responses displayed via your computer screen or a video recording of the task being completed (maybe for a math project or something).
Tests vary not only by subject, but also by grade level.
Am I Qualified to Be a Work-From-Home Reader/Evaluator?
You need a bachelor’s degree — any subject area is just fine.
Other requirements include:
- Passing the placement test
- An interview
- Breaking out your professional references
- Being able to work in the U.S.
- Having a fast, reliable computer
You next thought: You’re seriously going to trust me to grade someone’s work and affect their future?
