Research Project Evaluation 

 

Group Members:                                                                    Your Name:                                          Group # =                 

 

Project Title:                                                                                                 

 

Use this form to evaluate each presentation.  Fill out a separate form for each group.  Use this form as a checklist as

you prepare your presentations.  I will use these evaluations to: 1) help determine each group's grade; and 2) to assess

your evaluation skills (how well do you summarize and criticize the work of others).

 

The numbers in brackets indicate the weight given to each item.  The evaluation scale ranges from 5 to 10, where 5

is "inadequate", 6 is "poor", 7 is "adequate", 8 is "good", 9-10 is "excellent".  The mark out of 10 is calculated by

multiplying the rank by the weight for each item.  Example:  You give 8 evaluation points to a group.  The weight is

(.5) for that category.  8 times (.5) = 4;  write 4 for the subtotal.

2.  Presentations

 

(1)        5   6   7   8   9   10                               Is the group able to talk about the material and

(.5)       5   6   7   8   9   10                               Is the presentation easy to understand and

                                                                        informative (no jargon; includes new  and                                       

                                                                        interesting ideas)?                                                    

                                                                                                                          

   (.5)    5   6   7   8   9   10                               Has the group demonstrated a sense of

                                                                        creativity in their research and presentation?

                                                                        way; a theme is followed throughout)?                                 

 

Note:  To calculate the total, add all of the subtotal points together, and write the total in the space below. 

(The total should not add up to more than 100 points.)

                                                                                                                            

                                                                                                                                                Total  =                     

 

3. Comments (use back of page) -- Please tell the group: 1) at least two reasons why their presentation went well;

    and 2) suggest at least two areas for improvement.
