Hey guess what school districts! Pearson scorers don't even read your kids' papers a lot of the time!

Scorer (Current Employee)
Mesa, AZ (US)

I have been working at Pearson

ProsPay for performance. An opportunity to make a lot of money by gaming the system and figuring out how to keep your numbers up while merely glancing at responses before scoring. This allows you to score more than 100 two page papers an hour, equaling a lot of money.

ConsThe pay scheme cannot be good for the integrity of the scores being given to these kids. Most people have figured out how to know when you are answering a validity response, and how to score based on length. The interreliability numbers don't work either, since most other scorers are doing the same thing. I cant even fathom how many papers were returned to students with scores given by someone who didn't even read their paper.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to let your customers find out that you are scoring their papers without reading them most of the time!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
