Ohio Resident Educator Summative Assessment restructured beginning 2017-2018

9/19/2017

Based on feedback from educators throughout Ohio as well as an advisory group, the Department is restructuring the Ohio Resident Educator Program, including the program’s summative assessment. Beginning teachers with resident educator licenses take the Ohio Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA) in year three of the four-year program. These teachers become eligible for a professional teaching license once they pass RESA and complete four years of the program, including focused mentoring components and any local requirements. Learn more about the changes here.
