Join Pearson’s Testing Teams for Language, Achievement and Intelligence Tests
Greetings from Pearson Field Testing:
We’d like for you to join the testing team for one or more of our current projects. To do so, you must first create an account in our new Pearson Partner Portal, which is our exciting new way of communicating with examiners and allowing them to manage their candidate lists, monitor payments, and receive and accept both project invitations and testing assignments. For more information about becoming a Field Test Examiner, please access the Portal at https://fieldresearch.pearson.
Pearson is in the final development stage for premiere language and achievement tests, and is looking for professionals who can assist in identifying and testing qualified candidates. Pearson, the largest developer of assessments, is currently taking applications from psychologists, speech language pathologists, and educational diagnosticians to help with the testing of the Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals–Fifth Edition (CELF-5) and the Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement–Third Edition (KTEA-3). Moreover, the company will soon have a major testing phase for the Wechsler Intelligence Test for Children-Fifth Edition(WISC-5).
To become involved with any of these projects, professionals must first apply to become a Field Examiner, using an online application form on the new Portal web site. If you have already registered with the Pearson Partner Portal and have a userid and password, you do not need to register again. Within a few days of the application, prospective examiners should hear from Pearson that their Pearson Partner Portals have been activated and they can begin create a candidate master list, later to receive invitations to specific projects.
Field Examiners are responsible for identifying qualified individuals for the assessments, and then administering the research edition of the product as directed by a Pearson Field Research Coordinator. Pearson provides compensation to both the examinee and the examiner. Examiner payment is contingent upon the administration being useable. Submitting information on potential examinees is easy…you keep a list of potential examinees in your Portal account, then submit specific candidates to projects.
The target audience for the CELF-5 is typically developing individuals between the ages of 6.0 and 21.11. Special populations for the study are in the same age band, and include individuals diagnosed with or receiving services for expressive and/or receptive language disorders, hearing impairment, intellectual disability and specific learning disabilities.
The target audience for the KTEA-3 is typically developing individuals in grades PK-12 or ages 4.0-25.11. Special populations for the project include individuals diagnosed with or receiving services for academic giftedness, learning disorder for math or reading/writing, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, expressive language disorder and intellectual disability.
