Professional Scorers at Pearson

Professional Scorer (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

ProsAs a temporary professional scorer you have the opportunity to sharpen your cognitive skills and learn a bit about high school life (as viewed by teenagers). It is a challenge to understand all the rubric to score but once you have read a couple of hundred papers, you get it pretty quickly. Great as a second job.

ConsIt is pretty monotonous. You read for about four hours straight. Your eyes need a break once in a while! You have liitle chance to get to know others working in the same project.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome more genuine personal interaction would help scorers come back season after season.
