PAEA Seeks Volunteers to Serve on Item Remapping Work Group

PAEA is looking for up to 10 volunteers to serve on an Item Remapping Work Group that will begin in mid-May and is expected to end in June.  This is a time-limited commitment.

Nature of the Work

PAEA is seeking up to 10 PA educators to participate in a time-limited volunteer work group to review existing exam items from PAEA’s item bank and remap/reclassify them to meet the specifications of PAEA’s future exam blueprints. Each member of the work group will be tasked with reviewing a subset of exam items to ensure that they align with the appropriate content and task area, or that they are marked for future rewrite. 

Meeting Commitments

Work group members will be expected to participate in a virtual introductory call and training at the start of service. All other work will be divided up among work group members and will occur asynchronously. 

Terms of Service

This work will begin in mid-May 2024 and is expected to conclude in June 2024, with the potential to extend based on workload.
