How is the Speech Evaluator different from speech evaluation forms?

The Speech Evaluator is different in various ways from customary public speaking evaluation forms (public speaking rubrics, speech rubrics, speech evaluation forms, speaker evaluation forms, speech evaluation sheets, oral presentation rubrics, presentation rubrics, presentation evaluation sheets, presentation evaluation forms, presentation evaluation templates, etc.).

Large set of evaluation criteria (comments) to provide specific feedback

Customary public speaking evaluation forms have a limited number of feedback criteria, typically fewer than 20 criteria.  On the other hand, the Speech Evaluator offers hundreds of evaluation criteria, organized categorically for easy navigation.  This large selection of evaluation criteria allows the evaluator (the person generating the evaluation) to provide highly specific feedback.

Built-in descriptions of evaluation criteria (comments) to provide detailed feedback

Customary public speaking evaluation forms include few words about the evaluation criteria.  On the other hand, the Speech Evaluator includes a detailed description of every comment, which provides in-depth, instructive feedback to the recipient of the evaluation.  In addition, the Speech Evaluator also allows the evaluator to add her or his own remarks to any comment in the evaluation.

Timestamped evaluation comments to pinpoint the location in the speech

Every comment generated using the Speech Evaluator is timestamped and added to a timeline.  The recipient of the evaluation will be able to tell exactly where in the speech the comment relates to.  This is especially important with speech video recordings.

Mouse-and-click and keyboard shortcut interface to generate evaluations quickly

The Speech Evaluator saves the person generating the evaluation (the evaluator) time by generating specific, detailed comments using simple mouse clicks or keyboard shortcuts.  Changes and corrections to the evaluation are easy to make.

Interactive evaluations to navigate quickly and easily

Instead of a static evaluation form (paper or electronic), the recipient of an evaluation generated using the Speech evaluator will receive an interactive, multi-media web-based evaluation.  The evaluation timeline gives the recipient a summary of the comments.  Each entry in the timeline has a timestamp of the comment, a visual impact symbol indicating whether the comment is negative, positive, or neutral, and the title of the comment (a very brief description of the specific feedback comment).  The recipient can mouse over any comment title or impact to see a detailed description and any additional remarks by the person who generated the evaluation.  The recipient can also click on the timestamp of any comment to move to that comment.

Professional-looking PDF reports

The Speech Evaluator can generate PDF reports for evaluations.
