Assessment Administrators needed for NAEP

Westat is seeking motivated individuals who are committed to excellence and are experienced in working with primary and secondary school students. Therefore, it’s time to think about being an Assessment Administrator for the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as NAEP or The Nation’s Report Card, which is part of the U.S. Department of Education. The temporary position involves conducting assessment sessions with students in grades 4, 8, and 12 in participating schools across the country.

Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes and involves about 30 students. You will work on a team but will conduct some sessions alone. This opportunity is ideal for retired educators, and the application window opens up this summer.

Qualified applicants must have: a high school diploma or GED, be available 20-30 hours per week between the end of January and March 2017, be willing to complete background check requirements, including an FBI fingerprint check, have access to broadband internet connection and personal, private email account, have a valid driver’s license, and be able to lift a box weighing 15 pounds and carry it upstairs, with or without a reasonable accommodation.

Some of your duties will include: preparing assessment materials and assessment locations, checking for attendance, reading prepared scripts, monitoring test sessions, collecting and shipping completed test materials.

This opportunity is a part-time, temporary position with limited benefits. Westat provides complete paid training for all job responsibilities, paid time and mileage reimbursement for local driving to and from schools, weekly paychecks with direct deposit available, and opportunities for advancement based on performance.
