Official job listing: Assessment Specialist I, US History #208596
From the employer:
“Educational Testing Service (ETS) in Princeton, NJ, is hiring an ‘Assessment Specialist I’ – a test developer – to work on U.S. History exams. This position involves writing and reviewing test questions, working with committees of college faculty and high school teachers to make sure that tests measure appropriate content, and helping to coordinate the scoring of essays. The new person would work on a number of history tests, including National Assessment for Educational Progress (NAEP), Advanced Placement (AP), and teacher licensure exams.
The new person would be part of a group of about 22 historians and social scientists who perform similar jobs; work with historical issues on a daily basis; have frequent interactions with scholars and teachers in the outside world; earn a reasonable salary and benefits; and have the opportunity to live in a nice part of the country.
This job can be a really good fit for visiting faculty, adjuncts, recent PhDs, and late-stage graduate students who are looking for opportunities beyond academia.
Interested people should apply promptly; unlike many academic positions, ETS accepts and reviews applications as they are received.
“If interested candidates have any questions, please feel free to contact David Wolcott, Assessment Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or his co-director Andrea Mazzacano at email@example.com.”
