RICA Video Performance Assessment
There are two RICA assessment options:
- RICA Video Performance Assessment
- RICA Written Examination
Passing either assessment represents successful completion of the RICA requirement.
The RICA Video Performance Assessment offers candidates the option of an evaluation based on actual classroom performance rather than a written examination. Candidates who choose the Video Performance Assessment create and submit video recordings of themselves teaching reading.
- an instructional context form
- a 10-minute video recording
