What Will Craigslist be Used for Next?

Craigslist has been used for all sorts of questionable things.  Probably not topping the list, but still highly objectionable, it has been used to recruit people to grade high-stakes standardized exams.  It has been used in Dallas by Pearson for the all-important STAAR test.  It has been used recently by kellyservices, a company specializing in outsourcing and consulting, in Indianapolis to solicit standardized-test scorers.  All you basically need is a bachelor's degree, ID, time on your hands and one of those God-given rubrics.

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before underpaid workers, lacking benefits, operating out of dangerous warehouses abroad, are hired to grade standardized U.S. exams.  Perhaps they can be internationally recruited via a global version of Craigslist.    

In the meantime, here's a possible ad. for Craig's List.
