Contract for services to a New York nonprofit or for-profit entity to grade secondary-level field and pilot tests for selected Regents exams such as mathematics, English, science, social studies, and history. The vendor will hire and train exam graders, and facilitate the scoring of the constructed-response and essay questions by the raters. The raters hired by the vendor should have at least a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of 15 college credits or teaching certification from any state in the subject area of the pilot or field test being scored.
In conducting the scoring, the vendor will ensure that the raters use the rubrics and scoring guides provided by NYSED to score the constructed-response and essay questions. Inter-rater reliability will be established by having fifteen percent of the responses scored independently by two separate raters. For each item, the vendor will record, in narrative, summary style, how students appear to relate to the stimulus, any problems the students appear to have in undertaking the task, items that were misunderstood, and comments on the effectiveness of the training materials.
The successful bidder will provide for the scoring of pilot and field tests administered during the five calendar years of 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024.
