Via our employment page (click the job title links for the full description, requirements, and what to do):

Assessment Item Writers

Saylor Academy seeks educators to create and revise assessment items for our OER-based courseware. Assessment Item Writers will be asked to revise or replace questions that have been flagged for falling below certain psychometric thresholds or to bring questions up to the Academy’s revised minimum standards for acceptable assessment items. Educators may be asked to re-write all or part of the flagged items and must ensure that new questions are unique, original, and aligned to the course learning outcomes. Because this work is essential to Saylor Academy’s success, an honorarium of $150 is awarded for each project.

We’re looking for help across our entire course catalog for this one.

Consulting Professors

Saylor Academy seeks experienced professors to assist in developing OER-based courseware.

We’re looking for help with these courses, specifically:

Course Peer Reviewers

Saylor Academy seeks peer reviewers to review its online, OER-based courseware. Peer reviewers are responsible for evaluating courseware and providing feedback on courses’ overall difficulty, quality and cohesiveness (a comprehensive questionnaire is provided).
