WEA's National Board Home Stretch is a one-day seminar consisting of two parts:
- The morning is facilitated by an NBCT certified in the given certificate area. The NBCT facilitator leads candidates through a peer review of either Component 2, 3 or 4 with up to four other candidates in the same certificate area. The group provides standards-based feedback on the written commentary of these components using a protocol specially designed for use at WEA Home Stretch events.
- In the afternoon, candidates may choose between Component 1 (Assessment Center) preparation or a similar, facilitated peer review of either Component 2, 3 or 4 as in the morning. Component 1 preparation entails exploring the selected response items, the constructed response exercises, and released items in a small like-certificate group of candidates. Candidates may choose to focus on the same Components (2, 3, and 4) for the morning and afternoon using different written pages of the given component in the morning and afternoon. Afternoon feedback groups may or may not be from a like-certificate area.
