The Statistics Department employs 6-10 readers on a quarterly basis. Readers provide diverse services to instructors as  “course assistants."  Their tasks normally include the grading of student homework, quizzes, and exams for undergraduate statistics courses. A reader will NOT be teaching or holding office hours. The current pay rate for undergraduate readers is $15.00 per hour and $15.78 for graduate readers. The reader appointment can be renewed based on performance evaluation from the instructor and the availability of reader hours.
