RESA candidates have received information from Teachscape regarding videos for Task 1 that were submitted for scoring, but were segmented incorrectly and cannot be scored. Candidates who have submitted videos for Tasks 1 or 3 may work with Teachscape to correct segmentation errors if they contact the RESA Help Desk before April 5. Errors that may be corrected include: more than two segments from a single class; segments that are not at least two minutes in length; segments that total more than 15 minutes in length; or segments from more than one class session.
