The number of applications received for the 2018 marking season has been overwhelming which means we have more markers available than needed for the current marking season. However, we encourage you to apply in the event there are last-minute cancellations. Your application will be kept on file for the 2018 marking season.

Other Information

All new Densmore markers are required to view the "2018 New Marker Training Session" before their first marking session. While we recognize many new Densmore markers have other marking experience, the training session is intended to outline the Densmore marking guidelines and expectations. New Densmore markers will also be required to mark two sample responses as part of the training which will be reviewed by a Densmore team leader. Details on this process will be provided in the marker invitation email. Experienced markers will also be required to view the online "2018 Densmore Marker Refresher Session" before their first marking session.

When applying, please keep in mind:

  • All marking is done remotely. The marking session description refers to the course location for the candidates (i.e., CFE-1 – Halifax/Vancouver refers to courses in those locations and not the marking location).
  • The marker fee is $70 for Day 2 role cases and $30 for Day 3 cases.
  • A prep fee equal to an additional response (e.g., $30 for a Day 3 case) is paid and intended to compensate the marker for time needed (when marking a case for the first time), to read the materials, to watch the marker debrief as well as to mark a sample response before live marking begins.
  • The first date in the table below is the date responses will be available while the second date is the deadline to complete all of your marking.
  • Responses are available by 12:01am on the first date but may be available earlier as candidates finish writing the previous day while marked responses must be returned by 11:59pm on the deadline. These are local times determined by the course location (e.g., courses in Vancouver will use the Pacific time zone while the Toronto courses will use the Eastern time zone).
  • The marking sessions have been separated by case. Preference will be given to those markers who are able to mark the same case for more than one marking session. This makes it easier for the marker due to less preparation time for subsequent marking sessions.
  • Day 3 cases typically have 6 - 8 assessment opportunities (AOs) while the Day 2 role cases have 12 - 14 AOs.
  • The number of markers required for each of the marking sessions is dependent on the number of candidates registered.
  • When applying for a marking session, keep in mind that you will need to be available for the day following the deadline in the event the team leader has any questions / comments during their quality control checks. Team leaders will "clear" markers when marking is complete (i.e., all papers have been checked and cleared).
  • Those marking sessions where French responses are available are noted below as "French marking available" in the marking session name. At this time, there are two sessions available in the "Additional Practice Exams" section.

Please note that marking dates are subject to some "tweaking". However, if any changes are made, all markers who have applied for that marking session will be contacted.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Densmore marker!
