WHO TO GO TO
• School or district technology staff or administrators
• Another teacher who has recorded video in the past
• Your Program Coordinator or facilitator who can identify
potential resources in the school as well as assist you with video
recording
• Web-based resource collections (e.g., YouTube) to help identify
recording devices and tips on producing video.
• Video Lesson must be from the year your are being assessed.
• You must submit an unedited video
• Lesson should be filmed in its entirety
• Have no pauses, breaks, jerky video, focus changes, and
periods of little or no activity.
• If the recording is stopped for any reason you need to film a new
lesson.
• The segment(s) must be at least 2 minutes, but no more than 15
minutes in length.
• You may choose two segments from the entire video to be scored.
•
This selected portion of the lesson is the only portion of the video that
will be scored.
• Assessors will not be able to watch any other portion that is not
selected by candidates.
• You can choose one segment without penalty as long as it fits the 2-15
minute criteria
• A video split between two different days will also be disqualified.
THE FOLLOWING ARE EXAMPLES OF
ACCEPTABLE VIDEOS AND SEGMENTATION
FOR TASKS 1 AND 3:
A NINTH-GRADE SPANISH TEACHER FILMS A 30MINUTE LESSON ON VERB CONJUGATION. THE
TEACHER WILL UPLOAD THE ENTIRE 30 MINUTES
USING THE MEDIA UPLOADER. AFTER VIEWING
THE VIDEO, HE DECIDES THE BEST EVIDENCE OF
HIS TEACHING PRACTICE IS THE MIDDLE
PORTION OF THE LESSON, SO HE INDICATES
WITHIN THE RESA SOFTWARE THAT THE
ASSESSOR SHOULD WATCH THE SEGMENT OF
THE VIDEO STARTING AT MINUTE 7 AND ENDING
AT MINUTE 22.
A SCIENCE TEACHER FILMS HER 55-MINUTE TWELFTHGRADE AP PHYSICS CLASS. SHE UPLOADS THE ENTIRE 55MINUTE VIDEO BUT, AFTER VIEWING THE LESSON,
DECIDES THAT THE BEST EVIDENCE OF HER TEACHING
PRACTICE IS DURING THE BEGINNING OF THE LESSON
WHEN SHE IS EXPLAINING THE CONCEPTS THE STUDENTS
ARE LEARNING, AND AT THE END OF THE LESSON WHEN
THE STUDENTS EXPLAIN THE RESULTS OF THEIR SMALL
DISCUSSION GROUP PROBLEMS. SO THE TEACHER
INDICATES WITHIN THE RESA SOFTWARE THAT THE
ASSESSOR SHOULD SCORE THE SEGMENTS OF THE VIDEO
STARTING AT MINUTE 2 AND ENDING AT MINUTE 10, AND
STARTING AT MINUTE 40 AND ENDING AT MINUTE 48 (A
TOTAL OF 15 MINUTES).
