    Pros

    If you are desperate for money , I guess that $ 75 isn't bad for three hours of (pressure filled) work.

    Let's start with the training. Although you potentially *could* have looked up everything on-line, it is impossible to try to toggle back and forth between portfolios and scoring rubrics. I had to print out about 100 pages of information, much of it in color. That was on my own dime. In addition, when I was scoring a portfolio, a video would get hung up, and I would have to call tech support. I would be on the... phone with them for literally 45 minutes to an hour--unpaid. If I *did* want to get paid for it, (they would pay for up to 1 hour a week) you had to go into their payroll system, which was also messed up. I had to call the payroll support people, who would always give me a temporary password (Welcome1). I'd re-set my password, and the next week the same exact thing would happen again. In addition, you only have 3 hours to score a portfolio. If you are trying to do a thorough job reviewing the plethora of information students send it to review, it might take you a bit longer, but they only want you to take three hours so that you don't "over-think it". (What?) The final straw was when I began one portfolio (you have 36 hours to complete it once you start) and went to log in the next day to finish it. It wasn't there. What? After spending forever on the phone with tech support, (same song--different verse), I was told that this particular portfolio had accidentally been downloaded to "MANY" scorers that last evening, and that only the person who finished it first would get paid for it. SO...I spent two hours working on a portfolio when I am not going to get paid for it? Last straw! I have a Doctorate in Education, taught for 19 years, and have worked at the university level with many student interns and teachers. I am the exact kind of person that they want scoring EdTPA....but no more. I was born at night but not last night. Forget it!.

    Get the technical issues cleared up! Allow scorers to take more than 3 hours if need be.

    Vielleicht ist der "neue" Standort ziemlich ungünstig.
