The RESA is a performance assessment that requires Resident Educators to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, as revealed in their day-to-day teaching. Performance assessments provide direct evidence, supported by written commentary, of what teachers do in the classroom.
The RESA consists of one task, the Lesson Reflection. Resident Educators are asked to provide evidence of how they implement the Teaching and Learning Cycle to support important learning outcomes for all students. As participants in the assessment, Resident Educators are prompted to reflect upon and synthesize what they have learned throughout the Resident Educator Program.
