Okay... I've taken the RICA twice... My breakdown is as follows: 217 - Felt like I didn't do well. Domain 1: ++++ Domain 2: ++ Domain 3: ++ Domain 4: ++ Domain 5: +++ Case Study ++ - describing instructional strategies My breakdown is as follows: 217 - Felt like I kicked butt! Domain 1: ++++ Domain 2: ++ Domain 3: ++ Domain 4: +++ Domain 5: ++ Case Study ++ - describing instructional strategies Admittedly I didn't study too hard the first time... the second time I focused almost ALL of my study time on learning strategies and working on bettering my case study... And I see that study or not... same score... and the 2nd time I felt REALLY good. Today I take it for the 3rd time... which is insanely embarrassing, and I'm psyching myself out. This is IT for me. I lost my current teaching position because I didn't pass and won't be able to teach on a short term permit as it's a 1 year option. By the time I am able to take and get results a 4th time (if I don't pass this time) we'll be a week before next school year begins and likely all jobs have been filled. So... this test is it if I want to teach next year and I am FREAKING out... the weight of the stress is clouding my ability to focus and I'm afraid I've already done myself in. I don't pass this, I lose all I've worked for over the last 2 years---time, money, etc... What can I do? Tips?
