A discussion about assessing oral presentations

Pat Addison, Mardi Gooding and David Sullivan
Curtin University of Technology
Generic skills like oral communication are highly prized in the market place, yet students are reluctant, even shy about being asked to speak up, let alone give a point of view. The idea that such skills are essential in modern business is not new. Indeed they have been on the education agenda since at least 1990. We are aware also that students have a keen eye for assessment levels; the rewards they receive for hard work. So we want to discuss assessment theory and how it impacts on students' behaviour.
