Other Information

All new Densmore markers are required to view the "2020 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 "2020 Densmore Marker Refresher Session" before their first marking session.

When completing the marker application below, 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 – Calgary/Toronto (July) refers to the courses in those locations and not the marking location).
  • Fee: The marker fee is $72/Day 2 case response marked and $31/Day 3 case response marked. A prep fee equal to an additional response (e.g., $31 for a Day 3 case) is paid and intended to compensate the marker for time needed when marking a case for the first time (e.g., to read the materials, to watch the marker debrief, to mark a sample response before live marking begins).
  • "Available" & "Deadline": "Available" is the date responses will be available while the second date ("Deadline") is the deadline to complete all of your marking. Responses are available by 12:01am on the "Available" 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" date. These are local times determined by the course location (e.g., marking sessions for the Calgary/Toronto (July) courses will use the mountain time zone). When applying for a marking session, keep in mind that you will need to be available via email for the day following the "Deadline" in the event the team leader has any questions during their quality control checks. Team leaders will "clear" markers when marking is complete (i.e., all papers have been checked and cleared).
  • "Responses": This represents the number of responses you are able to mark during the marking session. When deciding how many responses to mark, Day 3 cases are expected to take 30-45 minutes while Day 2 cases are expected to take 60-90 minutes to mark and provide the expected feedback. The number of markers required for each of the marking sessions is dependent on the number of candidates registered.
  • "Minimum Responses": When applying for a marking session, markers will be required to mark a minimum number of responses. For Day 3 cases, the minimum is 5 responses and for Day 2 cases the minimum is 3 responses.
  • Day 3 cases typically have 5 to 8 assessment opportunities (AOs) while the Day 2 cases have 12 to 14 AOs.
  • French responses: If French responses are available, the sessions will note "French marking available" in the marking session name (i.e., NPE sessions).
  • New Densmore Markers: The remote marker training session will take place in late May/early June. As a result, new markers will be ineligible for the May CFE Prep marking sessions.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Densmore marker!
