If you are a STEM person (math & science) or if you just want practice in grading virtual portfolios, NSTA needs help grading 5000 eCybermission folders. More students applied for this project than they expected- they had about 21000 students submit an entry and have been working on scoring them for about 2 weeks now. They really need to finish up the evaluations. If you want to volunteer, email Brian Short at: email@example.com
If you're curious about what eCybermission is, here's the link:
You don't get any money for this, just the gratitude of some really frantic people at NSTA. I do these things because I feel like it helps me stay up on evaluating based on content and not merely on something being filled out. Plus I can put it in a "volunteer" spot on any form that wants to know if I volunteer my time anywhere doing anything.
You can always email me if you have questions. I am not sure I'd have answers, but I can try. Brian is really the "boss" of this operation so please email him if you are interested in donating a few hours of spring break to a good cause, future scientists!
