About the Job
The Assessment Associate, Spanish & English will support the creation of engaging assessments for Newsela’s content, and will help drive the quality and diversity of ways in which educators can track and build upon their students’ learning. In this role, you will contribute to the design of ELA assessments, give feedback to freelance contributors on how to build out exceptional assessments, and conduct research and analysis to ensure our assessments are consistent and aligned to best practices. You will research ELA assessments (best practices, efficacy, and shifting state standards) to contribute to informed decisions about assessment development, in addition to establishing and tracking quality metrics. You’ll also help ensure that our ELA assessments have Spanish counterparts, and will lead the charge in evaluating and editing assessments in Spanish.
