      Hello, group! I passed as a second timer. I redid both of my videos
      and did excellent on entry 2. I am glad I redid both of my videos
      because it gave me time to think about what I am doing and what do
      more research on inquiry. When rethinking my entries, I focused on
      what I did and then reread the rubrics for the millionth time. I
      really wanted to learn from this experience. Don't get me wrong that
      scared me completely because I thought I was doing everything right
      already. I even had someone else watch my videos to see if they saw
      what I saw. It really was a time for me to re-examine myself as a
      teacher. Am I glad I redid my entries? Yes. If I would have failed
      again, would I have kept on going? No. It took so much out of my
      family for 2 years. When deciding whether to retake or not, each of
      us need to examine ourselves for ourselves. This process is long and
      hard. With no individual feedback, it seems impossible to know what
      is the right way sometimes.
      Good Luck with your decision!!

      hard for me to do because I am somewhat of a dictator. I have
      decided to redo my two videos and if I dont' get it next time then I
      will bow out. I also was frustrated with my entry 4! I had
      outstanding accomplishments and great parent contact and I scored a
      3. The only thing I can think is that is way the way I had it
      written because there is nothing else I could have done to improve my
      accomplishments. I just really hate the fact that no feedback is
      given. I want to know exactly what I did wrong!

      you think you did poorly on Entry 4? Yes, continue. Just redo your
      lowest scored entry. Teachers at my school have and applied for
      assistance to pay for the one or two entries they redid. You might
      find somewhere out there that will help you out and pay. I think 270
      is way to close of a passing score not to continue. Good luck.

        This is my first time and I'm stressing out big time.  If you have time, would you tell me what you did well on and what didn't seem to work for you on your entries.  I would greatly appreciate the help.  It takes a village...
        Thanks and congrats to you!

        I had a 270 first go round, but I felt too invested to quit. I passed this time around (with a 305) and I encourage you to do the same. Email me if you like. I scored highly on accomplishments the first time around so I could really help you there.

        not me.... 270 ... this was my first time.   I have not decided if I will continue or just call it quits.   I would love to hear some opinions on continuing vs backing out gracefully. 

        I am now a media specialist and it would be very difficult to go back into a classroom to redo portfolio entries. 

        I really didn't expect to pull it off the first time and was pretty satisfied with my scores EXCEPT entry 4 (accomplishments) ..... that one floored me.

        Congrats to those who were successful this year!

          I passed (finally, my second try)...by the skin of my teeth (they are still feeling pretty raw) but I will take it.  I have found that using anticipation guides for entries 1, 2 and 3 are a great thing!  you can use the data from them in your writeups. 
           
          Good luck to teh first timers and those who will be retaking!

            I agree, you should go for the retake in the area(s) you scored the lowest on. Entry four can be redone even if you are in another position. I took a year off

              I agree, you should go for the retake in the area(s) you scored the lowest on. Entry four can be redone even if you are in another position.  I took a year off and found funding in my last year.  Then finally passed.  I was close too but without the funding I would not have retaken it with money out of my own pocket.

              good luck on making your decision

                "Anticipation Guides" is a fancy, elitist, term and a creative design for "the ol'"  pre/post test.
                 
                Also, the EA/SCI field traditionally averages the lowest scores as compared to the other fields of certification.  If you did not achieve NBPT Certification this year, get all upset for about a week, then pick yourself up by your boot straps, figure out how many points/weight you need to "pass," which Entry(ries) do you have the most "control" over (usually 1 - 3), and re-apply.  Try to find a free money source in your community for the cost of the re-do and realize that now you have much more time to complete that entry and have sight of a specific numeric goal to achieve by adhering to the rubric, scoring guide, and especially the introductory pages of that entry in the "Portfolio Guide."
