Presentations (30% for first presentation, 60% for second presentation)
The instructors, as a group, will provide feedback to the presenter verbally at the end of each session. No written feedback will be provided. The following table indicates some of the things we'll be looking for.
|Body of talk||1||2||3||4||5||(balance/clarity/breadth of coverage)|
|Level of presentation||1||2||3||4||5||(OK for a first-year graduate student)|
|Visuals||1||2||3||4||5||(clear, informative, too few/many)|
|Oral delivery/body language||1||2||3||4||5||(clear, animated, enthusiastic)|
|Overall preparation||1||2||3||4||5||(coverage of related papers/subjects)|
|Organization/structure||1||2||3||4||5||(structured, well organized, finished on time)|
|Answering questions||1||2||3||4||5||(clarity, brevity, thoughtfulness)|
Discussion Participation (10%)
- each instructor will independently assess each participate on a simple scale, such as commendable/acceptable/could have been better; the final score will be based on these assessments.
- criteria include: Did the student ask questions? Were the questions thought-provoking? How well did the student promote and participate in the discussion? Was the student familiar with the contents of the paper?
