POSITIONS AVAILABLE:

Assessment Evaluator

The WW Graduate School of Teaching and Learning
The Woodrow Wilson Graduate School, in collaboration with MIT, is transforming the existing model of teacher education through a competency-based program that shifts the current focus of education from how long candidates must be taught to what they have learned and can do. It changes the emphasis in education from common, time-fixed processes—credits that must be accumulated, courses that must be completed and lengths of time students must spend in college classes—to common, time-flexible outcomes: the skills and knowledge necessary to be a successful teacher or school leader on day one.

The Academy’s program has three components: 1) a set of outcomes or competencies that all candidates must attain in order to earn a degree; 2) a challenge-based curriculum tied to these competencies; 3) assessment tools designed to determine candidate mastery. Teacher candidates progress through the curriculum by mastering competencies and graduate when they can demonstrate all of them. Teachers experience the challenge-based curriculum—based on real problems of practice that new teachers face—through in face-to-face meetings at the Graduate School and in clinical placements in schools.

Position Overview
The assessment evaluator examines teacher candidates’ work for evidence of competency and provides observation and feedback based on existing rubrics. Compensated training is provided.

Work Hours
The hours for this position will average approximately 5-7 hours weekly but may vary from week to week. All work can be performed remotely.

Qualifications and Compensation
Candidates should have experience with scoring or rating assessments and understand the use of rubrics. A strong background in Biology, Chemistry, or Mathematics and/or K-12 teaching is strongly preferred.  The Academy will offer hourly compensation.

To apply
Candidates should send a letter of interest, resume, and three references to Catherine Kinyua (kinyua@wwgradschoo.org). Please title the email “Assessment evaluator position.”

Selected candidates must pass a pre-employment background investigation to be hired for this position.
