Educational Testing Service Outside Item Writer opportunities for English Language Learners TOEFL® iBT in Helena, Montana

Job Descriptions:

Position Overview:

The TOEFL iBT test is seeking instructors and graduate students to identify passages for use in its reading section. The TOEFL iBT Reading test assesses English-language skills in an academic environment and is taken primarily by nonnative speakers planning to study at universities where English is the primary language of instruction. The passages that the reading section is seeking are taken from high-quality academic publications in the physical sciences, arts, and social sciences. Accepted passages are generally found in entry-level college textbooks and/or in university or commercial press monographs that might be used in an introductory college course. The ideal candidate will be a graduate student or instructor in the sciences or arts with a sense for clearly-written 700-word excerpts that are suitable for evaluating the reading ability of a diverse, worldwide testing population.

You must complete the application process by January 31, 2022 .

How to Apply:

  • If you do not already have one, create an ETS application account ( CID=83080 JID=334246 BUID=2538) .

  • Log in to your ETS application account and fill out or update the required data.

  • Upload a cover letter, your r sum or CV. We strongly prefer Word documents over PDFs. Make sure all documents contain 2022 in their titles before uploading them. Upload your documents only one time each. You will not immediately be able to see that they were uploaded. Log out and log back in to check whether your documents were successfully uploaded.

  • Title your cover letter with your first and last name plus Cover and the year 2022 (example: Jane Doe Cover 2022).

  • Title your r sum or CV with your first and last name plus CV and the year 2022 (example: Jane Doe CV 2022). Do not follow the instructions to paste the contents of your r sum or CV into the r sum field upload a copy instead.

  • Documents which are not properly titled will not be reviewed. If the application system changes the title of your document, that is okay.

  • Please note: If you submitted an application in the past, you will already have documents, such as a r sum or CV, attached to your account. You cannot remove them. Upload your most recent versions as stated above; we will only look at versions that contain 2022 in the title.
