Your name in your EQAO profile must match the name used in your profile on the OCT Web site. As EQAO’s database is linked with OCT’s, a non-matching name will create communication errors between the two sites. You can try adding your middle name to either the first-name field or the last-name field one at a time to see if this helps to rectify the error. Otherwise, please take action to ensure that your name is the same in both profiles.
EQAO has moved from the centralized scoring model it has used in past years to an online scoring model. This means that instead of gathering in one central location, scorers like you will be able to participate in training and then in the scoring of the assessments from the comfort of home. Please see the job descriptions in the “Apply to Work with EQAO” section of EQAO’s Web site for more information.

Please see the job descriptions in the “Apply to Work with EQAO” section of EQAO’s Web site for more information. Invitations to participate in EQAO activities will be e-mailed to eligible candidates approximately 4–6 weeks prior to the activity. If you see a job opportunity on your profile dashboard page, click “Details” for specific details.
Scoring generally takes place from Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Occasionally, scorers may be asked to score on Saturdays.
We have done our best to provide you with an accurate estimate of the amount of time required to score each task. For your personal planning, we have also provided you with an estimate of the latest end date to complete each task. Scoring may, however, be completed sooner than the date indicated.
Scorers may score from the comfort of home. This eliminates issues with transportation, accommodations or daily commuting to a centralized scoring site.
Some scorers may have received an invitation to score or multiple invitations to score only to discover that scoring opportunities are no longer available at the moment. This is because the scoring positions that were available have been filled quickly, and there are no more scoring opportunities at the moment. Applicants should keep checking their EQAO profiles, as scoring positions can become available at any time.
Yes. There is a limited number of scoring positions. As applicants accept offers to score, the scoring positions are filled quickly on a first-come, first-served basis. Sometimes additional scoring positions are added, or scoring positions can become available if scorers withdraw from their previously accepted scoring positions. Applicants should keep checking their EQAO profiles, as scoring positions can become available at any time.
Offers to score will be sent to qualified candidates by e-mail. As e-mails may be stopped by firewalls or sent automatically to junk or spam folders, it is recommended that applicants check their profiles regularly to see if there are any scoring offers for them. Applicants can add the e-mail addresses below to their “safe senders” list to avoid having the e-mail scoring invitations end up in a spam or junk folder. It’s always a good idea to check your spam or junk folders periodically.
List of EQAO e-mail addresses to add to your “safe senders” list:
Please note that EQAO is unable to accept job applications or employment inquiries by e-mail or by telephone.

Your profile may not be up to date, or your qualifications and experience may not have met the requirements of the scoring position. Or simply, there may not be any more scoring opportunities available at the moment. EQAO is unable to hire all applicants, and it is not required to provide justification to non-hires.
Some scorers, upon making changes to their EQAO profile, may find that a scoring opportunity is no longer available to them. This is a normal occurrence, as the automated system verifies that the details, qualifications and current employment status in an applicant’s EQAO profile match the requirements in the computer-based scoring position. As a result, it is important that a scorer’s profile be maintained with accurate information regarding address, qualifications, current role in education, experience, etc.
You can accept as many scoring offers as you want, as long as the dates do not conflict with one another. Once you accept a scoring opportunity, you will not be able to accept another if the dates conflict with the dates of the offer that you have already accepted.
You have qualified for more than one scoring position. You may accept as many of the scoring opportunities that you want, as long as the dates do not conflict with one another. If the dates conflict, please select and accept only the scoring offer that you prefer. To accept an offer to score, click “Details” beside the scoring position on your profile dashboard page, and then click “Accept.”
Log in to your EQAO profile, and then locate the offer you wish to decline on your profile dashboard page. Next, click “Details,” and then click “Withdraw.”
Unfortunately, EQAO cannot offer changes to the task you have been offered at this time.
Log in to your EQAO profile. All of the scoring opportunities that you have accepted are listed under “Status” on your profile dashboard page. For more information about each opportunity, click “Details” beside each scoring opportunity.
You must withdraw from your accepted scoring position immediately. Scoring with EQAO is considered employment, and EQAO relies on every scorer in order to provide timely results to schools, parents and the public. If you have accepted an offer to score for EQAO, you are expected to participate in the scoring activity. A scorer who accepts a scoring position and neither withdraws from it nor participates in the scoring activity will be considered a “no show” for the activity and may not be invited to participate in future EQAO events.
Do not accept any invitation to score until you can commit to the scoring opportunity.
