Grade Papers and Tests by Snagging One of These Online Test Scoring Jobs
This is an awesome way to make money from home. Though – I can say from personal experience, it's been seasonal for me and has never turned into anything permanent. That being said though, the pay is very good and the work is actually somewhat entertaining. Yes, essays can get pretty boring when students write basically the same thing over and over or the topic is just… snooze-ville, but I rather liked it and was grateful for the paycheck.
The company I worked for did require a degree, but it did not need to be in English or Language Arts. But not all online test scoring jobs will require that you have a degree. There are several companies below for you to check out and the pay can range from about $8 to over $15 an hour. It's just going to depend on the company and what type of scoring project you've been assigned to. (If you like the idea of being a test scorer, you might also like to check out this great list of online tutoring jobs. Flexible hours and typically great pay!)
I had an online test scoring job for two years in a row at around two month stretches each time. So around 8-9 weeks. I was paid $12 an hour and it was really nice. Everyone was helpful and like I said, the paycheck was nice to have. I was asked to come back a third year, but I couldn't due to my full time job just being too demanding and I didn't want to slack on my blog. So I passed. But this is nice work if you can get it.
