The Ohio RESA asks Resident Educators to complete the Lesson Reflection. This task requires the Resident Educator to select an individual lesson, provide context for that lesson, record a video of their teaching, and respond to a short series of questions about that lesson. These Commentary and Reflection questions ask Resident Educators to reflect on their lesson planning, instruction, and the outcomes achieved.
Scoring the Ohio RESA is an opportunity for administrators, teacher leaders, and university faculty to understand how Resident Educators are developing their craft and to assess their instructional practices based on the Lesson Reflection domains, which were developed from the Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession. Assessors must have a minimum of 10 years of teaching experience in a pre-K–12 setting and a record of scoring the RESA with high levels of accuracy and efficiency. To become an assessor for the 2018–2019 school year, you must meet RESA recruiting needs, participate in online training, and pass the certification test.
