Contract K-12 ELA Subject Matter Experts Needed
Academic Benchmarks is the premier standards data services provider to K-12 education. As the industry's most widely adopted data utility, Academic Benchmarks enables the connection of the education technologies, products, and content that drive innovation and help improve education.
Academic Benchmarks believes that technology should never replace the nuance and knowledge that Subject Matter Experts (SME) bring to the alignment process. The Academic Benchmark toolset reinforces, rather than replaces, the SME role in this critical content development function.
• Quality alignment of their content to the most current standards. • Strategic relationships with K-12 companies with AB-aligned content
The Alignment Services team aids a growing number of companies that do not have the internal capacity to align their content to standards or prefer to place greater focus on the company's core competencies, i.e., content or product development.
Academic Benchmarks is seeking education professionals who are interested in becoming Subject Matter Experts for Alignment Services. SMEs work remotely on a variety of projects in demonstrated areas of expertise. SMEs are provided a self-paced training program. K-12 English Language Arts SMEs can be assigned projects as soon as the Training Program is completed and passed, although other Subject Matter Experts (science, math, etc) are encouraged to apply.
