So how do you give a good evaluation?

Tips on Good Evaluations Edit

A good evaluation

  • Shows Empathy with the speaker
  • Provides Both Praise and Potential areas for Improvements
  • Uses the Sandwich Technique - Praise Improvement Praise - or Commend Recommend Commend (depending what school you went to)
  • Limit your points to 3 or 4 Clear Commendations, and 1 or 2 Recommendations.
  • Show what was good about the speech. Show How changes might make the speech better
  • Summarise your key Commendations and Recommendations in the same P-I-P, or C-R-C sequence.

Winning at Contests Edit

Evaluating for Contests does require a particular focus, if you are going to get all the support from the judges. And there is no one rule that will ensure success. But... think about these additional ideas.

  • Keep it simple (not too many points for the Presenter to take on board)
  • Minimise the use of notes
  • Adhere strictly to the C-R-C, P-I-P sequence. Keep it easy to follow.
  • Make sure you review the Judging Criteria - it will help you know what they're looking for.
  • Make sure the Summary does Not introduce new content
  • Practice. Take every opportunity to evaluate speakers that you don't know. Even do it, when you aren't the formal evaluator; even do it, when it's not at Toastmasters.
