Expression of Interest (EOI) for Trial Examinations Writers

Trial Examination writers are wanted to write the EBE 2022 Trial HSC Examinations for Business Studies, Economics and Legal Studies. Writers can either write the entire exam or co-write the paper with another teacher. The examination writers will be required to write an original examination, the marking criteria and suggested answers which all need to align to the syllabus. The end product is to be similar to the HSC examination, marking criteria and suggested answers published by NESA. However, a suggested extended response will need to be written (instead of just in dot points). The successful applicant/s will need to liaise with an EBE Director, and will have multiple milestones to complete throughout Term 1 and 2. The successful applicant does not need to be a member of EBE. The desired attributes of the successful applicant will have:

  • Appropriate qualifications and experience as a teacher of HSC students. A minimum of three years recent experience is recommended

  • Superior knowledge of the HSC syllabus

  • The capacity to apply the NESA principles for the development of examinations and marking guidelines.

  • The capacity to work in a team and meet specified deadlines.

Preference will be given to those applicants who have experience writing and/or marking examinations for NESA. Payment will be a fixed amount and will be discussed with the successful applicant. An approximate figure is $1,500 for an entire examination, or part thereof if written by multiple people. Payment will be made once all components are complete and signed off by an EBE Director.
