Science Test Development Intern

June - August 2019 • Iowa City, IA

What I liked

The work environment was great. I was able to work with a multitude of doctorate level science writers continuously. I worked independently and was given a surplus of freedom. The campus was beautiful and I was able to take breaks from work and go outside. Also ACT has a great internship program which allowed me to meet a variety of students from a lot of different backgrounds.

What I wish was different

I wish I was given an opportunity to do more projects, I felt like I was doing a lot of repetitive work. There were two of us doing the same role/projects, and I would have preferred to work independently.

Advice

I would be open to asking questions, because the test development process is very complex. Also, the majority of the people I was working with went to graduate school, so asking them questions about the process was really helpful.
