Provincial Assessments and Examinations


General Guidelines for the Hiring of Markers

The following notes are intended to inform applicants about the policies and procedures established for the purpose of equitably selecting markers.

In order to participate on a marking team, markers need to submit an application form annually.

If selected to mark in a given session, markers will be notified via an email invitation approximately 2 to 3 months ahead of a marking session from exams@gov.bc.ca.

Since a successful applicant will be appointed to and become an essential member of a marking team, it is important that the applicant is able to participate full-time in a team's assignment. As much as possible, training, credentialling and marking occurs on weekends or holidays.

During the July marking session, NO marking teams will be required to mark for the entire period. The various marking teams will be organized to begin and end marking on differing dates. Nevertheless, when planning personal schedules, applicants should be prepared to mark during any portion of the entire session.

It is the applicant's responsibility to submit a revised form if any information such as address, name, email(s), school and/or teaching assignments change. Alternatively, updates may be sent to exams@gov.bc.ca

T4As will be sent automatically to each marker by February 28th. No Records of Employment will be issued by the Ministry of Education.

Please fill out the applicable form, print and then either fax to 250-953-0460 or scan and email it to exams@gov.bc.ca
