Make your decision based on three criteria:

  • Content: How informative was the presentation? Did the speaker present interesting results as well as all other information needed to understand the outcome of his or her research? Was the amount of information just right, too much or too little?
  • Presentation: How well designed was the presentation? Were animations used to emphasize the results or to divert attention.  How well did he or she present the talk orally? Did he or she speak loud enough and at an appropriate speed? Did he or she grab your attention or bore you? Did the speaker make an effort to interact with the audience?
  • Intelligibility: Did he/she make an effort to explain important terms? Was there a story that you could follow throughout the talk? Did he or she explain what his/her results mean and why they are important? Where tables, graphs and images sufficiently labelled and explained and were they large enough to understand them quickly?
