CenterPoint Education Solutions is searching for freelance item writers in Mathematics and English Language Arts (Reading and Writing) to develop test items (including for both large-scale assessments and classroom-based formative assessments) in grades K-12. Freelance item writers work from home and are paid on a per-item basis. We're especially interested in hiring current or recently retired classroom teachers, as we recognize that the best educational resources are developed by educators for educators.

If you meet our freelance item writing qualifications, we provide training on how to develop high quality multiple-choice, open response, short answer, performance tasks, and technology-enhanced educational assessment items. After an initial training period, new potential freelance writers are provided with a sample item writing assignment and receive feedback, so each writer can successfully meet the quality expectations for assessments aligned to college- and career-ready standards. Item writers also learn to create items using our state of the art, secure item authoring system.


- Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, or Doctorate in discipline (or in Curriculum, Measurement or another applicable area).
- Two or more years of teaching experience earned at the elementary, middle or secondary level.
- Prior item writing experience preferred but will provide instructional materials and feedback to train new writers.
- Excellent written communication skills.
- Familiarity with national and/or state curriculum standards including the Common Core (for Math and ELA) and the Next Generation Science Standards, NGSS (for Science).

To apply, please email your resume and a cover letter.
