Excelsior College, a regionally accredited, virtual, private, nonprofit institution of higher learning is seeking dynamic applicants for the position of Test Development - Subject Matter Experts, within the Center of Educational Measurement.

The Center for Educational Measurement at Excelsior College and Cengage Learning, Inc. are joining together to develop an exciting new product line in Business Administration at the MBA level. This product line will combine Cengage's market-leading digital content with an Excelsior College high-stakes examination for credit, and aims to provide affordable access to credit from an accredited college.

We are currently recruiting faculty consultants for this breakthrough project, which will consist of five products covering the following topics:

* International business management

* Managerial accounting

* Marketing strategy

* Leadership

* Operations management

The two roles for which we are recruiting are:

* Development Committee members. The committee identifies the scope and learning outcomes for the product, develops a comprehensive content outline, develops sample test items, serves as expert item reviewers, and serves on a standard-setting panel. The time commitment includes a four-day Development Committee meeting in Albany, NY, flexible item review assignments from home, a virtual Form Building meeting, and a three-day standard-setting meeting to be scheduled by committee members at a later date.

* Item Writers. Item writers construct items (questions) based on specifications provided by the Center for Educational Measurement and can complete their work online at home.

Both roles require subject matter expertise in Business Administration instruction at the MBA level, with the following minimum qualifications:

* a doctoral degree in business administration or a related field from an accredited institution

* experience teaching one or more of the topics listed above at the MBA level at an accredited institution within the past two years

Excelsior College offers honoraria to all subject matter experts working on the project, as well as reimbursement for any necessary travel and associated meals and lodging.

We are seeking to hold a Development Committee meeting for all MBA projects at Excelsior College in Albany, NY, from January 9-12, 2017.
