    10. From what you saw & heard on the videorecording, briefly evaluate the level of the "communication competence" of the  CONTENT [ e.g.  thesis /  supporting material]  & the STRUCTURAL  aspects  [e.g. Order -Of-Organization/Intro/Conc]  of the presentation. ( remember to use the perspective of "being a listener in your own audience". )

 


 

           11.  GRADE YOUR PRESENTATION:  By this point in the course, you have been exposed to a variety of principles for achieving context-based, audience-centered communicator effectiveness.  In addition you have observed various communication styles in action;  therefore you should now be able to evaluate your own performance objectively according to the criteria of the oral communication field.  By applying  specific grading criteria similar to Dr. Plummer's, indicate what grade you think is appropriate for your Combo Speech Presentation from the perspective of Audience Effectiveness.  [ This does not mean that you will necessarily get that grade. It's a way to further assess your objective understanding  of Oral Communication]
