Are there any special requirements to be a judge?
In order to ensure the integrity of the competition, all judges are subject to approval by the SIFMA Foundation prior to judging. In addition, educators participating in the InvestWrite program in any capacity will not be allowed to contribute to the judging process.
How much time will it take me to judge InvestWrite essays?
Depending on the number of judges participating, you could receive up to 8 essays to judge. Please plan to spend between one to two hours reviewing and scoring all essays.
Why must I review and score the essays within three days?
InvestWrite was designed to provide teachers participating in The Stock Market Game™ program as much time as possible to implement the competition in the classroom before the end of the semester. Completing the judging process within this time frame will ensure that teachers and students can be presented with their prizes prior to the close of the school term.
How will I know when to start?
Once the essays are ready to be judged, you will receive an email notification containing the login ID and password information needed in order to gain access to your InvestWrite essays.
Will I be given directions on how to judge?
Yes. Upon accessing the InvestWrite website to judge the essays, you will be provided with comprehensive grading directions, explanation of the point system and the InvestWrite assignment for your grade division.
