Associate, Assessment (Bangalore based)

CENTA assesses and certifies the competencies of teachers through both multiple choice and practical (tech-enabled) assessments. The rigour, quality and depth of these assessments play a very important role towards CENTA’s overall mission of creating rewarding career paths for great teachers. We are looking to add 3 Associates to our Assessment team, with specific focus on: (1) English language and communication, (2) Hindi language and Hindi medium, (3) Social Sciences.

Persons with significant experience could be considered for a Senior Associate or domain Lead role. The Associate role offers great growth opportunities towards leadership in assessment and also to work in training or other areas over time.

  • Create and refine assessments for teachers: multiple choice questions, open-ended questions, practical assessments, rubrics.
  • Continuously build a pool of external subject matter experts and work with them to create and review assessment instruments.
  • Deliver assessments by supporting the operations team where needed.
  • Maintain and update relevant question banks.
