  • Verify item order in paper test books and that book formatting is accurate per state standard requirements.

  • Verify requested edits are accurately applied.

  • Interact with Publishing Project Manager, Implementation Manager, Technical Composition Production Specialists, Asset Production Specialists, Composition Production Specialists and Graphic Artists in the Publishing Services department daily, as well as Program Team and others as needed.
