Readers and scribes (R&S) will be paid the standard student-aide hourly rate (may change annually) as determined by Manhattan College.
R&S are responsible for contacting the SRC no later than 24 hours prior to an appointment if they are unable to attend a session, and will have their contract terminated upon the third canceled appointment.
R&S' first three assignments/tests will be reviewed by the professor, and if the work does not meet the professor's standards, the R&S contract will be terminated.
Scribes must possess proficiency in language skills that may include:
grades in collegiate English coursework.
a recommendation from a faculty member.
writing sample as prescribed by the SRC.
completion of all prerequisite coursework necessary for the class.
legible handwriting as determined by the SRC.
a working telephone number (to be filed with the SRC).
Readers must possess the same criteria listed above except:
replace written/legible handwriting, with oral reading proficiency.
Students must inform the SRC two weeks prior to the need of a note taker starting.
For the lead time when using a reader or scribe for testing, please see alternative testing and classroom adjustments.
Students are responsible for monitoring the quality of the work presented by readers, scribes and note-takers, and should immediately contact the SRC if problems arise.
Students requesting a reader or scribe for work other than testing must inform the SRC two weeks in advance of each session (multiple or semester long appointments may be made). Students needing an exception to this waiting period, please contact the SRC.
