Application for marking the Externally Set Tasks (EST)

About the EST – Information for markers

Markers will attend a training meeting on either 8, 9 or 10 July (first week of the school holidays). Markers will be informed of training meeting times at appointment. Marking of the ESTs will occur in the first week of the July holidays and is completed online. The number of scripts to be marked will depend on the number of students enrolled in that course and the number of EST scripts requested. Some markers will also be employed as final markers to reconcile any EST mark which differs greatly from the school mark. This final marking will be completed in the second week of the holidays (15-21 July).

Markers will be paid to attend training at $70 per hour and $7.50 per script marked.

For further information about ESTs, refer to the EST handbook on the Authority website.
