2014-2015 Scoring Update - Assessor Recruitment Underway
Modifications to 2014-15 RESA Assessor Training: As many of you know, the task forms and rubrics have changed from last year based on feedback from a design committee composed of Ohio educators and national education experts. More information on these modifications can be found here.
The RESA Assessor training materials have been modified to reflect those changes. Currently, the Ohio RESA Team is actively working with Ohio-based master coders to update and expand the selection of exemplars featured in task training. We are also replacing all assessment (certification, calibration and validity) materials in the online training and scoring system.
The Ohio RESA Team is actively recruiting assessors for 2014-15 RESA. If you are interested, please contact the Help Desk: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will release more information about training and certifying for scoring the RESA by the end of February or early March.
Next Steps: We will be release the Assessor Profile for you to complete in mid-March. To complete the Assessor Profile, you will need to have information on your professional and educational background on hand.
2013-2014 RESA Scoring is Complete
We did it! Scoring of the 2013-2014 Ohio RESA is complete, passing standards are being set and final score reports will be sent to candidates in mid-December. Most of you are Ohio educators, and many of you are RESA program coordinators, so your participation in this process has demonstrated true leadership and coalition building. Thank you for being part of this important work for education in Ohio.
As with many first time endeavors, we know there is room for improvement in the training and scoring process. To better help us understand what worked and where we can improve, all 2013-2014 RESA Assessors were emailed with a link to short survey. Your feedback and suggestions are very important to us as we plan for the 2014-2015 RESA Scoring Season.
Schedule for Scoring 2014-2015 RESA
The online RESA submission system was opened to new 2014-2015 RESA candidates on October 31, and the first task deadline is set for December 15. Assessor profiles – which returning assessors will need to update – will open in late March and training and scoring for the 2014-2015 RESA will run from late March through the summer of 2015.
