PART-TIME TEACHERMATCH ITEM WRITERS
Are you a professional educator or educational scholar who has experience with item development? Do you believe that schools should be led by effective principals who can contribute to greater student learning? Would you like to contribute to research that is designed to learn more about what makes great principals great?
TeacherMatch is seeking to hire brilliant educators to craft test items that will enable schools to improve their hiring practices and enhance their professional development. While exceptional writing skills are highly desired, subject matter expertise is more important than previous experience with and/or proficiency in technical writing or psychometrics. Training in item construction will be provided.
TeacherMatch is a education technology organization that has partnered with a national network of prominent educational organizations in the hopes of designing a SaaS-based (software as a service) assessment that will revolutionize the way principals are hired. TeacherMatch envisions a nation in which every school district boasts a thoughtful, efficient, hiring process that effectively identifies the most talented principals and in which extremely satisfied principals work in schools that fit with their skills and abilities.
Item writers will join a team of educational leadership experts which:
Item writers will attend a 3-day focused training workshop in July in Chicago, and following the workshop may work whenever and wherever they wish so long as the agreed upon number of items are written and submitted in a timely fashion.
