Hi fellow teachers, I could really use some advice or help. I have now taken the RICA six times. I cannot begin to tell you how defeated I feel. I have purchased every book on the Rica, including Zarillo's and used teachers test prep. I had a job with a new district and they were very patient and gave me time to be able to pass and obtain my credential. However, at the end of this school year since I have not passed i have been let go. I can get my job back if I pass, but as I received my score for the latest exam I missed it by 5 points...a 215. I'm going to request a rescore, but any advice you have on that i would greatly appreciate. Any advice at all would really help. I don't want to lose my job. I'm very desperate at this point. I've only taught in the 7-12 as a special education teacher if that helps at all. Thanks.
