2022 NAPLAN Writing test marker applications

Principals/directors and F–10 teachers and coordinators

Applications to mark the 2022 NAPLAN Writing test are now open through the Sessional Staff Management System.

NAPLAN Writing test markers gain rich and rewarding experience from reading and assessing a range of writing from Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 students.

We are seeking applications from current and retired teachers. You may apply for day or evening marking shifts, although current full-time teachers are expected to apply only for the evening shift. The position descriptions can be found on the Writing marker information page.

New markers are appointed on the basis of teaching (English) and other relevant experience. Experienced markers are invited to apply and are reappointed each year on the basis of previous marking accuracy and time commitment to NAPLAN marking.

Markers are required to attend a full-day training session and complete online modules. Training attendees are paid CRT rates for attending training. Dates for training sessions are yet to be finalised.

Marking the NAPLAN Writing test takes around 30 days and includes weekend work. Day markers are required to commit to at least four hours of marking each day over the time of the project. Evening markers commit to at least three hours per evening.

Marker training and experience is recognised by the Victorian Institute of Teaching.

Applications will close in early February 2022, or earlier if suitable applicants have been selected.
