After a small delay I can finally get on the system. I'll have a read over the guidelines tonight/tomorrow and hopefully do the training on Thursday. Has anyone had a go at the training yet?

I'm having a go with the training queries. I think this task is fairly simple but some of the examples I'm coming across are just flat out wrong, and seem poorly researched. If this is representative of on-the-job audits, then I'm not sure this job will be any more reasonable than Appen Butler-Hill. The rate of pay/flexibility combo is tempting enough to continue striving though.. Tomorrow, after a good sleep.

Have you had the "there are issues with the training set so stop working on it" email? Grrr.

I'm beginning to suspect we're being used as unpaid muppets to find all the inconsistencies for them :(

Glad I hadn't got round to the training yet. Seen some people say they've done a couple hundred of the training things, I guess they'll have to do it all again :-X

Yeah, got that email. I agree that this project doesn't seem quite ready for the wild yet..

I have completed the 200 odd training queries now - and then the email arrives. Does that mean I will need to repeat. Not v impressive really is it.

Anyone else got 440 queries loaded now? Earlier it was reloaded to 230 ish despite me doing quite a few yesterday.

EDIT: and now we're back to 229 :eek:

No idea really. I'd hope that people that have already done them will be ok but I wouldn't like to say either way. Fingers crossed yours will be ok though.

Got two emails today - one with the guidelines - the other saying do not work on them! At least I hadn't started!

I have 229 completed and 229 available for judging now. The guidelines vanished and now are back again.

my training score was too low so I am out.......

Sorry to hear that BillyBloss, didn't they offer you another chance? I thought originally they said that if you didn't do too well with the training set it meant you needed more training so I took that to mean that you got another stab at it.

nope - it was a bit abrupt really - score too low so not allowed to take the test. Ah well - not to worry. Must admit it did bore me pretty senseless! And some of the answers seemed quite contradictory. That with all the technical issues did put me off a bit! Just bit fed up I wasted so many hours for nothing.

Doing this now, I think a 3 grade system would be far better.

Excellent, Good or Poor

It's very ambiguous (ironically enough).

;D

Does anybody know how long it takes to find out if you passed/failed the training?

I failed. You can click on My Report and get an idea of whether you've passed or not. To be honest I'm glad I failed, I couldn't get into the mindset of their classification system.

Going by the stats in the report section I worked out that I failed by just 0.1% (just one Hit) :'( The first one I did though didn't show up, and when I rated it as a technical difficulty it said I got it wrong. I let them know that though, so maybe that might help push my percentage slightly over... fingers crossed anyway.

I've passed the big 229 question test, no idea how. I found out within a few hours of emailing them that I had completed the training test.

Now through to the next round. Pass rate is higher but not as many questions to plod through. Not hopeful but you have to be in it to win it!!
