Grades are then scaled to the points for the assignment.
After each talk, the students in the audience write evaluations of the talk. In particular they comment on the main points, science, organization, presentation (or style), and slides. They also grade each category on a scale of poor - fair - good - excellent - outstanding. The teachers grade the talks 1-5 in each category (except main points) based on the student comments, using the student scoring as a guide. The grades are then scaled to the points for the assignment.
