    I have been working at Pearson part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You work remotely and it was interesting to see that this type of certification exists. Too bad it is not more relevant to what students of the "student teacher" needs to learn, and no measure of any learning outcomes.

    Cons

    Horrible training where they try to brainwash you to think like the non teacher/facilitator, moderator that is running the "consensus scoring"! It does not seem that any of the trainers or many of the scorers (and surely not the designers of the Rubrics and the TBR (Thinking Behind the Rubrics) have ever been in a classroom. While they say the "rubrics" standardize the process, the language especially on the "Language" rubric, is so wrapped up in applying terminology that is just not understandable and not applicable to certifying a new teacher.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the process and employee designers and scorers that will come up with a more relevant certification process.

    I have been working at Pearson part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is by far the best part time job I have ever had. I started scoring for Pearson in 2008. As long as you can understand the training materials and the goal of the position, you will do well and be asked to come back year after year.

    Cons

    Not enough hours. That is my only complaint, but that isn't Pearson's fault. When the papers are all scored, they are all scored and there is no more work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to re-hire good scorers each year. We do appreciate the opportunity to work from home.
