Description: An established publisher of college-level science textbooks and supplements, we are developing items to accompany our biology-for-majors textbook. We’re looking for a few highly skilled freelance item writers from biology and other life sciences to write on a work-for-hire basis. Writers will have access to our textbook and will be asked to create stimuli with clustered items to support the text and selected learning objectives. It is essential that writers are experienced with item writing at the higher cognitive levels. There will be no “recall” items in this component of the project.
Please respond with a current résumé, detailing item-writing experience. Include original, college-level biology items. We are looking, especially, for samples that involve stimuli with items requiring the application of learned concepts and the analysis of new information (Bloom’s levels 3, 4, and 5).
The project starts in late March and runs through October.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Required: Proven talent for writing in-depth, challenging, college-level biology items. Advanced degree in biology or related discipline preferred.
Timeline: Starting in late March and likely to continue through October
