Correlation work from home
No idea about the legitimacy of this. Having done correlations myself and reviewed other people's correlations, I know that it's difficult to produce a good correlation (so maybe their expectations will be low!).

How... annoying. I feel thoroughly unqualified, but reading their requirements makes me think that I'm more highly qualified than they're expecting (having at least been on the other end of correlation work/checking).

However, I've been flooded with work and turning projects down, so I'm not sure this is tempting enough.

There are a variety of different national, state, and local standards that require particular topics or methods be covered in particular courses. Since they range widely in what they require, there are correlations to show that Publisher X's new algebra/history/whatever textbooks cover the required content/methods.

Er, and these are done to be able to sell the books, of course.
