Year 2 Formative Progress Review


Year 2 Formative Progress Review

    What is the purpose of the Year 2 Formative Progress Review?

    The Year 2 Formative Progress Review provides an opportunity for Resident Educators, mentor
    and Program Coordinators to synthesize evidence of practice, reflect on collaborative
    effectiveness, and help assess readiness for the Resident Educator Summative Assessment
    (RESA) in Year 3.

    How does the Year 2 FPR differ from the Year 1?

    The Year 2 FPR differs in two ways:

    • Two teaching standards have been added: Communication and Professional Growth; and
    •  It simulates the Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA) experience. The year2 FPR helps assess the Resident Educator’s readiness to prepare for and take the RESA inYear 3.

    of the Resident Educator and should not be submitted to ODE.

    Who should participate in the FPR process?

    Resident Educators and mentors should collaborate to complete the Formative Progress Review
    together as the process is an extension of the collaborative conversations they have engaged in
    throughout Year 2 of the Ohio Resident Educator Program. RE Program Coordinators and
    building administrators also are expected to participate, as outlined in the FPR instructions and
    template.

    What resources are available to support the mentor, RE, and PC in the FPR preparation?

    an on-going tutorial throughout the process.

    What is the role of the mentor in the FPR process?

    Mentors act as facilitators of RE’s reflection and analysis in the FPR. Mentors continue to work
    on the Year 2 timeline with RE’s, which from February to May addresses the Instructional Cycle.
    This timely mentor support will support the REs’ FPR work.

    How can Resident Educators prepare for the FPR throughout Year 2?

    Throughout Year 2, each Resident Educator should maintain a collection of evidence, including
    the “Year 2 required formative assessment documents” that demonstrate progress in Year 2.
    This collection of evidence may be used when completing the Year 2 Formative Progress Review.
    Specifically, to prepare for the Year 2 FPR, Resident Educators:

    • Continuously reflect on their practice, considering both their progress and challenges;
    • Purposely analyze evidence and apply it to their practice;
    • Thoughtfully complete and save their work for the required formative assessment
      documents; and
    • Intentionally gather, organize and save relevant evidence beyond the required
      formative assessment documents.

    Can REs fail the FPR?

    No. The FPR is meant to serve as a formative assessment benchmark of the REs progress in Year
    2, which can help inform the RE’s professional development for Year 3.

    Will the FPR be used as the only criteria to decide whether the Resident Educator is prepared to take the RESA in Year 3?

    No, multiple measures should be considered, but the Year 2 FPR will be the most recent
    demonstration of the RE’s teaching practices.

    What is the purpose of the optional prompt?

    Prompt 2 is an optional prompt for Resident Educators. This prompt is meant to simulate a task
    in the RESA. The prompt provides REs the opportunity to videotape and analyze a lesson from
    the instructional cycle.

    Back to Top


    Should REs complete prompt 2?

    Yes, REs should complete prompt 2 if they want the opportunity to practice for the RESA.

    When should the FPR process be finalized?

    The Resident Educator, mentor, and Program Coordinator must complete the FPR by the end of
    the school year
