Assessment Development Team RFQ

The Ministry of Education is seeking experienced educators to participate in the development of provincial assessments.

The development of provincial assessments is an ongoing process.  In order to develop assessment questions and tasks that meet the specifications of redesigned provincial assessments, the Ministry of Education engages teams of experienced and trained assessment development team members in both English and French.  The term can be up to 5 years.

Typically, development teams meet 4-5 times a year in Victoria, Richmond or Vancouver.  Each meeting is scheduled for 2-4 days for team members to collaborate.  Team members also complete tasks individually, e.g., writing first draft questions and searching for reading passages. 

Development team members will be paid professional fees for their services and have their TOC cost and travel expenses covered, including flight or mileage, accommodation, and meal per diem according to government guidelines. The Ministry will provide training on test specifications.  The Ministry will provide item writing training and ongoing technical training and oversight.

Applications to become a development team member are set up through an RFQ posted on the BC Bid website This posting will remain open for 4 weeks, closing June 13th at 2pm. Please follow this link to access further application details.
