Presentation Rubric: Is your presentation ready for an A+?

Presentation Rubric: Is your presentation ready for an A+? | Language Assessment | Scoop.it

Most colleges and business schools use a Presentation Rubric to evaluate their students. Funny thing is, they’re not usually that open about sharing it with their students (as if that would do any harm!)

Well, we don’t believe in shutting down information. Quite the contrary: I think the best way to practice your speech is to know exactly what is being tested!
