Table Topics Evaluator

Purpose   Tick  To provide quick feedback on how well each speaker was able to present their table topic.
  Tick You have to be concise and precise in what you report. Too many Table Topic Evaluators are guilty of exceeding the time imposed.
Before the meeting begins  Tick  The Table Topic Master should have given you a list of questions that will be asked.
What to do during your assignment Tick As with all evaluations, your presentation should be positive, upbeat, instructive and basically congratulatory.
Tick  2-3 minutes is not long. It gives you enough time for a few general comments, then 20-30 seconds per speaker.
Tick  Do not comment on or embellish what the speaker said. Rather, evaluate the degree of effectiveness achieved in achieving a sound structure, and in procuring audience reaction, especially to the acceptance of a point of view.
  Tick  A common structure to recommend goes by the acronym P.R.E.P. When the topic is given, the speaker should make a Point, give a Reason for the point, provide an Example or two, then reiterate the Point.
  Tick Discuss trends amongst the speakers and limit your remarks on individuals to those to whom you can give helpful advice. In order to keep in your time limit, don't discuss the good answers at length. They can be mentioned in passing so that you can devote your remarks to the areas and people where they can do the most good.
  Tick In essence try and give one good point and one point for improvement about each speaker.
  Tick Hand back to the Table Topic Master.
    That is the end of your assignment. You will be evaluated by the General Evaluator.
