The Assessment Development Division of Educational Testing Service is seeking freelance writers, graduate students, teachers, and other college-educated people who have an appreciation for good writing and a sense of the interests and abilities of high-school students. Successful candidates will work with ETS test development staff in developing lively and appealing reading comprehension materials for assessments. Exemplary writing skills are required. Candidates should live within a 60-mile radius of Princeton, NJ, and must be willing to commit to one day of on-site training in Princeton and at least one year of freelance writing assignments.
Interested candidates should email their CVs to the attention of Dan Johnsen at LSAReading@ets.org.
Candidates should also submit a short (no more than one-page) sample of writing that they believe would be suitable for testing critical-reading skills. The sample should not be a self-generated piece of writing but rather an excerpt of material from a published source. It should exemplify writing that the candidate believes would be rich, complex, and engaging for college-bound high school seniors. The sample should be sent as an email attachment (pdf preferred) along with the CV. Please include a citation for the source.
Interested candidates should apply no later than Friday, November 20th.
