Problem Identification: Call to Action for in-person Audience

In-depth rubric explanations, examples, and video exemplars.


Higher Quality Rating (3 points)

Audience of the presentation is asked to take action, but specific steps are vague or not directly related to advancing the proposed policy

Written Example: In their presentation with the school board, the students put forth a policy proposal that would require ethnic studies courses in the district's high schools. The students do not specifically state that they want to put this policy up for a vote at the next school board meeting. After the presentation, the school board members are under the impression that the policy is a good, yet hypothetical idea, unaware that they could help by putting it to a vote.

Video Example: The students list several ways for audience members to help them with the implementation of their policy, but are unclear as to immediate action steps for becoming involved beyond “checking the Student Voice box” in order to receive more information.

Lower-Quality Rating (1 point)

Audience of the presentation is not asked to do anything.

Written Example: Students at a high school meet with community members at a local town hall to discuss their efforts to implement ethnic studies course requirements. The students reviewed their research, discussed their policy, but did not ask the audience to support in any particular way.

Video Example: The students describe their proposed solution, to host a workshop introducing youth and community members to fitness, but do not include a call to action for the in person audience.
