Decision Making Exercise

Purpose:

The purpose of this exercise is twofold:

  1. To provide feedback on the class understanding of the techniques of presentation, and to share these understandings with fellow students,
  2. To create an exercise in decision making in a large group, and
  3. To provide a democratic means of evaluation of presentations by students by their peers.

Time: Action

 Individuals will make their choice of the three most important evaluation criteria in each of the three categories of content, presentation, and graphics for judging the performance of each group in their debate summary presentation. Each person fills in sheet 1.

 Each group will meet together, select a leader, and chose the four most important criteria. Leader fills in sheet 2.

In the next three phases, one extra chair will be available within each discussion group so that any individual can occupy it for NO MORE THAN 1 MINUTE to participate in further discussion. The chair of each discussion group must enforce the time limit.

 Committees of leaders (to be assigned) will meet together, select a representative of each committee, and will chose the five most important criteria. The Representative fills in sheet 3.

The representatives of the committees will meet together (at the front of the room), choose a chairman who will present the final selection to the whole class. The representatives meet and choose the six most important criteria in each category. The chairman fills in sheet 4.

The chairman will present the final choice of criteria to the whole class, using the form linked from the button below. The password will be provided by the instructor.

This process involves discussion -- I suggest you review the guidelines for discussion included in this set of notes.

The final choices of criteria for judging individual presentations will be posted on the WWW as soon as possible.
