Science Content Committee Recruitment

The GED Testing Service is looking to increase the pool of qualified individuals interested in sitting on the committees that review our test items. At this time, we are looking to seat a committee which will review potential social studies test items for rigor, the accuracy of the content, and alignment to the skills the items are meant to assess.  The committee will convene via webinar for between five to seven days in the early part of 2014, likely January or February. No travel is required for this committee and committee members are compensated at the rate of $400 per day.

Our ideal candidate has at least a bachelor’s degree and substantial experience in at least one of the tested science domains (Biology, Chemistry, or Earth and Space Science), is interested in exploring the intersection of the intersection of science and the Common Literacy and Mathematics Standards, and is excited about helping shape a high profile assessment in a way that will benefit test-takers nationwide.

The new GED® Test is on track to be the first large-scale national assessment specifically tied to the Common Core State Standards. Participation in its development provides the opportunity to be part of the cutting edge of an important 21st –century movement to reform education and assessment.

Individual interested in serving on Science content review committees should submit their letters of interest and resumes as soon as possible to
