Grader for various college-level classes

Closed - This job posting has been filled.

Job Description

Students will submit answers to quizzes. Some are short, such as:

- Describe how you could measure the circumference of the Earth using a ruler alone.

- Describe the process to produce a custom ASIC circuit. What software would you use, how would you procure manufacturers?

Some answers are lengthy, such as whole essays.

- Make a machine learning solution to playing chess. Produce a report with graphs of roughly 4-6 pages.

YOUR job is to grade the students' answer. You will assess how correct their response is, and give feedback to help them get back on track if they're wrong.

As you can tell, many of these will require some topic knowledge. You will be able to learn on the job by seeing other graders' responses, and we will also try to match you with tasks that you are competent at.

The most important skill is good communication, to give students encouraging and succinct feedback where they get it wrong.

The volume of work is almost zero right now as the system is not live yet. We would like to engage a couple of workers to be ready to handle low volume of tests during our development of the system. We will have an email alert when there are tasks to do. You will then log on to our system, perform any pending grading and charge us for the time spent.
