June 7, 2011: Interview About Public Speaking Evaluation And Reviews With Communication Professor Dr. Steven Brydon

LOS ALTOS, California (June 7, 2011) - Rate Speeches conducted an interview about public speaking evaluations, speech rubrics, and public speaking reviews with communication professor and author, Dr. Steven Brydon, offering significant suggestions.

Public speaking instructors and coaches often use speech rubrics to generate public speaking evaluations of their students' speeches.  These rubrics provide a mechanism for speech assessments, speech critiques, and speech analysis.  Over a million speech evaluations and presentation critiques are produced every year by tens of thousands of public speaking instructors, coaches, and other professionals, as estimated by Rate Speeches.  Despite their importance, speech evaluation and speech rubrics are seldom researched and investigated.

Communication professor and author, Dr. Steven Brydon, offered valuable recommendations about designing speech rubrics, conducting in-class student self-evaluations, and performing speech assessments while minimizing defensiveness and anxiety associated with receiving feedback.
