Examiners and Moderators

An Examiner marks candidates’ responses in accordance with the pre-defined mark scheme, whilst adhering to Code of Practice and examination procedures. Most subjects will be marked onscreen using ePEN, which can be done from home. A few subjects are still marked in the traditional method, using paper scripts sent through the post. A high level of subject knowledge is necessary in order to apply the mark scheme. Each examiner will receive an agreed allocation of scripts. 

A Moderator will review the centre assessment of candidates’ work in accordance with the agreed assessment criteria and Pearson's procedures. Each moderator will moderate a specified number of centre samples.

Training will be available to contracted Associates and the dates and method of training will be made available to you should you receive a contract. The training you receive will either be face to face or online and further details will follow once you are contracted.


The majority of our marking is carried out online using our online marking system E-pen. We facilitate the marking of scripts online by dividing them into ‘items’. For this type of marking we pay per item. You will receive a contract detailing the number of items we’d like you to mark and the amount payable.

Although the fees differ across units, based on complexity to mark as well as time and effort required, an average payment to an Assessment Associate will be in the region of £500- £800. We also pay a fee for attendance at the training/standardisation meeting, be it face to face or online, and a teacher release fee to your centre if appropriate.
