    Hi all
    I have marked Spanish papers for exam boards in the UK but this year am teaching in the USA. I am still interested in marking externally however Pearson said this is not something they offer. Does anyone know of a way to mark externally whilst working internationally?
    Thank you in advance.

    IB? Why can't you continue to mark for the English exam board? I have friends here in Spain who mark online for English boards...

    They said 'security of papers and tax reasons'... no, GCSE.

    My friends mark online, so no "security of papers" problem. It's left up to them whether they declare the income for Spanish tax. I would check with another board. Otherwise, try writing to the IB. I know many, many IB examiners in the USA who have no problem...

    Yep you could try IB or some of the IGCSE boards. Or you could quit marking and take a look around.
