Learning Outcome Mapper (Contract)

About Study.com

Do you enjoy learning, analysis, and critical thinking?

Here at Study.com, our mission is to make education fun again! At the same time, we’re always looking for ways to measure users’ progress and conceptual understanding. For this reason, we’re working identify the core concepts being assessed in each and every one of our quiz and chapter questions in a project we call Concept Mapping. 

About Our Learning Outcome Mappers (also referred to as Concept Mappers)

Now on to the details: We’re looking for passionate teachers, curriculum designers, and academics who can help us map questions on Study.com to related concepts in our subject area taxonomies.

All concept mapping projects start with a taxonomy of concepts and a set of questions. You’ll then read through each question, determine the concept being tested, and either find the corresponding concept in the taxonomy or create it. 

What’s a concept? Here’s one, for example:

Let's say you're given this question and answer to map - Q: Which was the deadliest campaign in the Civil War? A: Gettysburg

This is the concept that you would use to map to that question/answer:

Social Studies | U. S. History | 1800's | Civil War | Battles | Battle of Gettysburg

Concepts are broad and general at the start and become more specific and granular as they progress. 

Our ideal contract concept mapper is detail oriented, collaborative, responsive and loves to learn. We’re looking for individuals who have the following qualifications:

  • Do you have a depth of knowledge in science, math, history, language arts, or psychology?
  • Do you have a master’s degree or higher?
  • Do you enjoy open-ended tasks?

Fantastic! In exchange for your services, we provide:

  • Payment: Timely, reliable payments twice a month
  • Flexibility: The ability to work a flexible schedule, from home, in your PJs at 3 a.m. if you choose
  • Support: Access to an incredibly supportive in-house team to answer your questions and lend a hand
  • Warm Fuzzies: The satisfaction of helping millions of students each month on their own quests, whether it’s a GED, affordable college credit, or just general enlightenment
