I liked the way...your presented the experiment data in visually since it was complex. I liked seeing the game screen shots because it gave us an idea of what they looked like.

One suggestion is... Use highlighting or boxes to call our attention to what you want us to see in the complex charts.

I liked the way... you managed time, carefully balancing the necessary set-up with the clear results. Also, great job reflecting on the way the nature of the control influenced the comparisons.

One suggestion is... to highlight the purpose and specific differences between multiple experiments.

I liked the way...
.non-threatening, inviting delivery style
.nice definitions on executive function and shifting - helped me (the layperson)
.nice 'need' setup
.good discussion of limitations

One suggestion is...
.is dimensional card sort a widely accepted tool?
.procedure and results slide had a lot of information which allows for quick summary and comparisons but it is a lot to process - could it be broken into multiple slides?
.nice work on time - however, more time for implications would have been helpful

I liked the way...fantastic presentation style, very engaging. Your use of body language, tone and emphasis showed your comfort with the material. Set a really good context for the study and operationalized variables in the study and how they mapped to the research question.

One suggestion is... I didn't understand the methodology? I think there was a pre-posttest design using secondary data as a comparison group? Or was it post-test only with NIH data as a base line of expected learning gains?

I liked the way...How you clearly talked through the meaningfulness of the results. Gave clear explanation of unfamiliar game. Strong understanding of the entire study. Confidence in the knowledge.

One suggestion is... Circle back to why these results, shown to be effective for increasing executive function, are useful in the classroom for a teacher or other practitioner.


06/27/2018 -

I liked the way...you very clearly described the hypotheses and measures in a way that pointed us to think about and anticipate what the conclusions and implications would be.

One suggestion is... to highlight in the method section the control/comparison group or lack thereof (design).

I liked the way... your introduction provided a broad hook for your audience interest, and then narrowed to the study's specific purpose. Fantastic job leaving ~ 2 min for discussing the limitations and significance.

One suggestion is..., for this type of study, to use visuals to show comparison groups - i.e., experimental group sample size, etc. on one side and other group sample size, characteristics, etc.

You paced your presentation well overall. I really liked how you explained the results, and your evaluation of study limitations was thoughtful (especially liked the discussion of expectancy bias).

I got a little lost between methods and results/conclusions. The wristwatch discussion was good and interesting, but I would have liked a little more context about the game design and its impact on study results.


06/22/2018 -

I liked the way...nice problem statement at the beginning that contextualized the study in light of the real-world issue it addresses.

One suggestion is...think about more explicitly introducing the specific purpose of this study before diving into method. This helps the listeners delimit which part of the larger problem/question this study will address.


06/22/2018 -

I liked the way... you summarized the the important thematic elements without overburdening us with obscure concepts or unnecessary details. It was clear, concise, and followable for everyone involved-- likely even without prior knowledge.

One suggestion is... perhaps an opportunity to 'summarize' the results page a bit more-- maybe. You did spend time going through each line, perhaps drawing out generalizations instead might keep the audience connect better. There might be an opportunity to provide generalizability as well. (Opinion)

I liked the way managed your time phenomenally well, you knew the content of what you wanted to share inside and out, and your fluid, confident delivery. Your presentation was engaging.

One suggestion is to reserve a bit more time to discuss the implications of the study and suggest possible future research. What is your take on the study ... limitations you recognized?
