Multi Media Presentation Using Self and Peer Evaluation
Consistent with the
where students engage in learning that is an active social process, and where collaboration and dialogue among students is encouraged so that learners can connect ideas by summarizing concepts and analyzing information; as well as justifying and defending their ideas,
self and peer evaluation
can be a valuable tool to enhance student performance.
As a major level project outcome English as a 2nd Language students at George Brown College are required to make a 5-7 minute multi-media presentation on a business topic of their choosing following a structured presentation formula.
Using recording software such as
, in this formative assessment, students are instructed to record the introduction to their presentation by introducing themselves , their topic, and topic outline, as well as including a hook to generate interest!
They may rerecord their introduction as often as they like. Once they have successfully recorded their speech, they follow a self evaluation form to assess the strengths and weaknesses of their recording and assist them in setting short- and long-term goals in preparation for their final presentation. The assessment form focuses on structure, pronunciation, grammatical accuracy and verbal presentation characteristics.
Students then rerecord their presentation introduction and switch with a fellow classmate. They then take turns assessing each other.
Students may then record their speeches and have the teacher comment using the same form as a guide. In addition to helping students reflect more effectively on what they need to do to become an effective English speaker, it also serves to force them to repeatedly practice out loud while allowing the instructor to listen prior to the final performance and identify students who may be having difficulty with the assignment.
Introduction Structure and Script
Peer / Self Evaluation
“According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” ~ Jerry Seinfeld
