Evaluating an oral presentation is not as easy as it looks. Different categories have to be considered in order to see if the presentation was indeed effective, engaging, and was able to provide the proper and accurate information based on the theme that was given.

A presentation, simply put, is presenting a specific topic to an audience. A presentation could be  a lecture, an informative speech, a persuasive speech, or a demonstration, although it is not limited to those methods alone. Our Sample Evaluation Forms are easy to access, printable, and are the perfect solution to helping you assess the impact of a presentation.

Evaluating a Presenter

As an evaluator, there are typically five things that you will need to observe when evaluating a presentation: Confidence, Content, Clarity, Structure, and Visual Aids.

Confidence

It can be an awkward and stressful experience to deliver a speech in front of a lot of people. However, people believe that a speaker knows exactly what he is talking about when he or she acts confident even if deep inside they are turning into mush.

Actions that exude confidence in a speaker include maintaining proper posture, head up and chin in, moving freely around the space given to him, using an adequate amount of hand gestures, smiles, no fidgeting, an audible voice, eye contact, and speaking at the right pace.

Content

If delivering a speech in front of an audience sounds like a nightmare, constructing the contents of a presentation can be mind-boggling. In order for a presenter to provide meaningful and informative content, he must be able to provide details that directly hit the topic of his presentation, provide details that will support his main idea, make his points clear and concise, and should not beat around the bush.

Clarity

The presentation and delivery of the presenter should be clear enough for the audience to hear. A well-managed tone of voice and audible pace of speech, key points of the presented topic are hit and paced moderately are important things that a speaker should take note of. One should also maintain a pace that is not too fast and not too slow.

Structure

To make sure that a presentation is understandable, its structure is vital. It should begin with a good introduction and proper conclusion; ideas and supporting details have to be properly outlined.

Visual Aids

Use tools such as Powerpoint slides to provide an engaging and effective presentation. Powerpoint is a Microsoft Application that uses slides. It can be presented via projector so the audience can view the speaker’s points clearly.

Presenters can provide the key notes and the summary of their topic through these slides or provide handouts to guide their audience on the topic.

For teachers and educators conducting presentations in class, Sample Student Evaluation Forms are also provided for a quick and easy way to outline and determine a student’s performance. A basic Sample Performance Evaluation Form or Sample Presentation Evaluation Forms may also be used for your general presentation evaluating needs.
