The successful candidate will analyze algorithms and other materials in existing mathematics domains for general quality, soundness, coherence, and compliance with applicable guidelines. In addition, he or she will apply the same knowledge to algorithms associated with future products and domains. He or she will also determine whether classification of student answers is correct or incorrect. Finally, the successful candidate will propose creative solutions to issues that arise from quality control analyses.
-Perform quality control of mathematical and/or chemistry algorithms, including, but not limited to:
--interpreting how the material fits within the context of, and the location within, the textbook, when applicable, to determine the most appropriate way to program the algorithms; and
--using the knowledge of mathematics and/or chemistry and basic programming to make sure the algorithms:
---are mathematically and/or chemically correct,
---function as intended, with no display errors or other programming errors,
---and accurately reflect related exercises in textbook(s).
-Document and communicate any issues with algorithms so that the issues may be addressed.
-Develop and propose creative solutions to quality control issues such as strategies for presenting users with questions that would allow the users to do the work.
-Assist in developing or refining quality control procedures applicable to the content implementation programming area.
-Perform software testing as needed.
-Perform other assignments or duties as required.
