Featured Job: Online Test Rater

Work from home as a Test Rater for Educational Testing Service!

Educational Testing Service (ETS) is currently hiring qualified people to score and rate the TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) writing assessment. The TOEIC is a language proficiency test designed for people whose native language is not English.

As an approved TOEIC Rater, you will score written constructed responses from home for this program. Ultimately, you must successfully complete the required training sessions and become certified to score this assessment. 

In order to work on this project, you must have a secure Internet connection, a reliable computer, and have a phone (mobile or landline) to make and receive calls while you are connected to the Internet. You must also hold a B.A. degree or higher from an accredited school. In addition, ETS states that they prefer raters with some experience teaching ESL (or similar courses) at the high school, college, or adult learning level.
