    These are casual academic appointments. The casual rate will vary depending on the type of work completed. Please view our various casual academic pay scales. The marking rate for standard essays is 3,500 words per hour and the pay rate code is AC30A or AC30B. For example, if marking 2,000 words for 18 students, then 2,000 x 18 / 3500 = 10 hours 17 mins.

    Initial marking hours are based upon expected enrolment figures, which often fluctuate in the first few weeks of semester. After census date, all marking is reassessed using census enrolment figures, which means that your allocated hours for marking may increase or decrease depending on student numbers.
