Program Analysis and Understanding

Criteria for grading presentations

Project Presentations will be judged based on the following criteria:

  • understanding: does the presenter understand the problem in a larger context, and place the solution within it?
  • background/perspective: does the presenter understand the relevant related work?
  • clarity: can the audience understand the presentation? is the "big picture" clear? are there useful examples?
  • materials: do the slides or use of blackboard illustrate and support the talk? are there diagrams to help convey the technicalities? (when your talk gets into deep territory, a diagram is worth 10K words)
  • delivery: has the the presenter practiced?
  • answering questions: can the presenter handle questions from the audience?
