Measurement Inc. Project Work That Doesn't Work Out Durham North Carolina
Measurement Inc. contracts with states to grade exams. In the spring of 2012, I was hired to be one of these graders for a potential six-week project.
The client state, New Jersey, had tested middle-schoolers on their grasp of English. They were to write a reactionary essay based on a given topic. We were to grade these papers on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 was hideous and 5 was exceptional. We were divided into teams of about eight, with one group leader. While the extremes were easy to spot, it was the essays in the middle ground which were tougher, and the group leaders were not helpful about determining a 3 from a 4, or a 2 from a 3, or any combination thereof.
My group leader wanted to single me out as the "bad apple," claiming I didn't know what I was doing and I would be released from the project if I didn't improve. After a week of test essays to grade, he determined I was not fit for this kind of work and I was summarily fired--this was after I'd already been unemployed for weeks and struggled just to get this!
Adding insult to injury is the fact that North Carolina sucks for jobs, no matter how much they advertise otherwise. Never apply for any job with these con artists: they want to run their own little club, wasting everyone's time and effort, and stealing state monies for work that should never have been farmed out to begin with.
