Assessment Evaluator

The HM Graduate School of Teaching and Learning

The High Meadows 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 Graduate School’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 proficiency in all of them. Ordinarily, 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. (Currently the Graduate School is operating entirely remotely).

Position Overview

The assessment evaluator examines teacher candidates’ work for evidence of competency and provides ratings and written 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
A background in K-12 teaching is required. Candidates should have experience with scoring or rating performance-based assessments and understand the use of rubrics. Familiarity with Biology, Chemistry, or Mathematics content is highly preferred. Compensation is $31 per hour.

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

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