New Checking Audition Coming Soon
On December 19, 2018 in
Seasons Greetings to Our Volunteers!
As we end the year we look back on what we have completed and forward to the tasks we have waiting for us. Our standards and training have been steadily updated through the year, but our checking audition project is in need of a serious update. While it still reflects our needs for standards and quality, we've learned a great deal about the errors our home readers encounter, and want new training to reflect that. The training will be better focused and more successfully with examples that demonstrate those frequently reported issues and what steps the checker can take to correct them.
A new checking audition sample will be released early in January. If you are already in the process of auditioning, then please finish your work on the current version. If you haven't yet begun, you may choose to delay starting over the holidays and audition with the new audition project. Please note as well that we'll be phasing out the old checking audition project, and it will no longer be available by the end of January, so if you are already working with it then please finish your auditions and revisions promptly.
Please direct your questions to the usual channels, either through email or chat, and thank you for volunteering!
