  • Suggested Grading Criteria
    The way you assign grades will vary based on the expectations you incorporate into the assignment as well as the point structure of your course. This list of suggested grading criteria is based on the five point A-F scale.
  • Peer Evaluation and Feedback Form
    It is important to encourage students to evaluate themselves and their peers. This form can be used for peer feedback and critique.

Web Resources
Some colleges and universities have adopted a “communication across the curriculum” approach which requires that courses in various disciplines include oral presentation assignments. Several of these programs have companion websites with excellent resources for faculty. They are typically designed for non-communication faculty who wish to assign oral presentations in their courses. Typical resources include information about public speaking, handouts for students, and grading rubrics. Below are links to a few of these websites.
