Ohio RESA Guidebook 2019-2020

The Ohio RESA Guidebook includes an overview of the RESA, instructions for completing the Lesson Reflection task, a description of the Lesson Reflection domains and criteria for varying levels of performance, a glossary of terms, RESA submission and scoring policies, general systems requirements for using the submission systems, and information for modifications and accommodations.

Teaching and Learning Context Form – PDF Version

As part of the Lesson Reflection, candidates are required to complete the Teaching and Learning Context Form to provide important information about the students in the class, which helps assessors understand and interpret the Lesson Reflection.

When completing the form, we strongly recommend typing responses directly into the template. Copying and pasting formatted or bulleted text into the template can result in the modification of the template or the addition of blank pages, which will cause the form to appear blank when it is uploaded to the website.

Prior to submission, candidates are required to preview the Teaching and Learning Context Form on the Ohio RESA website to ensure the entire form is visible and legible.

Note: The form templates can be downloaded and saved as either MS Word documents (.docx) or PDFs (.pdf). If candidates try to save it as another document or convert file types (from PDF to MS Word or vice versa), the RESA Submission System will not read it.

Using Handbrake to Modify Video File Size and Type

HandBrake is a free software application to compress or convert video files. The vast majority of educators will not need to use HandBrake. This guide was created for educators who have tried and failed repeatedly to submit videos to the TeachForward System. HandBrake allows users to compress their video files for a faster upload process and/or to convert their video files to a format that is accepted on the TeachForward System.
