Teachscape is sending Resident Educator Summative Assessment candidates a reminder today that they must complete and return the Tripod Student Perception Surveys as directed on the survey materials no later than March 1. Any candidates who have not received Tripod surveys should contact Tripod’s Help Desk immediately.
The department highly encourages superintendents, principals and other administrators who have responsibility for making decisions associated with student growth measures to register for one of the essential half-day training sessions that educational service center staff are conducting now through April. The training will help administrators meet milestones on the evaluation timeline for the next few months, especially the legal requirements for completing teacher evaluations by May 1 and preparing written reports of the evaluations by May 10.
Year 3 Formative Progress Review (for REs not taking RESA) now posted.
The Ohio Department of Education has extended the deadline for RESA tasks 2, 3, 4 and 5 to Midnight Eastern Standard Time on Sunday, June 1, 2014. Note that the Tripod Student Perception Survey administration deadline remains March 1; RESA candidates will receive the surveys the week of Feb. 10. The deadline extension for tasks is a result of the continued weather-related school closures and uncertainty regarding further school closures this winter. The complete news item on this topic includes related details and explains that the change in deadlines means that candidates will receive their score reports in December 2014.
