Are you passionate about literature and want to help children learn to read?
We are looking for freelance quiz writers to produce content for our Accelerated Reader (AR) product, which is designed to verify that students have read a given book with a basic level of comprehension. Performance of quizzes becomes part of an electronic record that teachers use to set reading practice, monitor progress, identify areas for improvement and reward success. Because of this, years of research has gone into developing a straightforward, plot-driven quiz that accurately tests comprehension. Following strict guidelines, the quiz writer’s task is to match the quiz’s focus and linguistic complexity to that of the text. While there is a creative element to the work, quizzes follow a specific structure. Experience in copywriting or technical writing is an advantage.
You’ll be a fast reader with an expert knowledge of English grammar. While most of the work will be done from home, you must be able to come into the London office one day per week. Work in-house takes place according to an individually assigned schedule. Quiz writers will be expected to attend periodic meetings and training in the London office.
Short- listed applicants will be asked to take part in a multi- stage process prior to selection.
Stage 1: Completion of a quiz writing exercise, which will be posted to you on receipt of your CV.
Stage 2: If selected, applicants will be invited to attend a selection day, which will allow you to delve deeper into the role and test your quiz writing skills.
Stage 3: Over a period of 4-6 weeks, successful stage 2 applicants must demonstrate the ability to write quizzes at varying levels of difficulty according to AR style and format rules. Freelance contracts will be offered to those who show consistent improvement in the quality of their quizzes.
This is a freelance position.
To apply, send your covering letter and CV to email@example.com with the title ‘Quiz Writer’.
