Highest Quality Rating (3 points)

Written Example: Presenters coordinate their turns with each other and provide smooth transitions between speakers.

Youth show that they know which speaker comes next by identifying the  person by name or handing the microphone to the right person.

Mid-Quality Rating (2 points)

Written Example: The presenters are mostly on the same page, but 1 or 2 transitions among speakers show confusion or uncertainty (such as a pause of more than 5 seconds showing uncertainty between turns).

Youth have some confusion about who speaks next or cannot locate quickly where the next speaker is. This is especially obvious when there are multiple quick check-ins about who speaks next or passing of microphones back and forth without anyone speaking.

Lowest Quality Rating (1 point)

Written Example: There are 3 or more moments when speakers show uncertainty about whose turn it is. In general speakers do not appear to be on the same page about the order of the presentation.

During lowest quality cases, there will be significant confusion about speaking order. The youth will appear to not have rehearsed speaking order. Transitions become a significant distraction.

Video Example: Must watch video in its entirety to observe presenters coordinate their turns with each other and provide smooth transitions between speakers.

Video Example: The speaker sharing his poem stumbles while reciting it outloud, forgetting the lines.
