2
Technical ProductionSmooth transitions throughout piece. No dead space. Audio volume complements the presentation. Presenter followed teacher guidelines for the length of the media.Transitions are smooth, but dead space is occasionally heard. Volume is acceptable. Piece is a bit too long or too short but close to the teacher guidelines for length of the media. Words aren’t always clear and/or pacing is uneven. There is distracting dead space and/or ambient noise. Transitions are uneven. Volume is occasionally inconsistent. Words often aren’t clear and pacing makes it difficult to follow the piece. Much of the piece has distracting background noise. Transitions are jumpy. Volume changes are highly distracting. Piece doesn’t follow teacher guidelines for length of the media.
3
Awareness of AudienceAudiences other than the presenter’s peers would learn something from the project and find it valuable. The intended audience can understand the project. The project reaches the intended audience, but isn’t educational. The project doesn’t reach the intended audience.
4
Images/GraphicsThe graphics and images contribute to a creative and effective presentation and enhance key points by contributing to the concept explanation.The graphics relate to the audio and are helpful in communicating the content.The graphics only marginally relate to the audio and aren’t always helpful in communicating the content.The graphics don’t relate to the audio and distract from the science content.
5
Instruction/Delivery of ContentNarrator uses both handwriting and manipuation of images to create a tutorial that connects the listner to the topic and explain answer to the question.
