I liked the way... your broad introduction quick moved to RQ's and methods, and left plenty of time for full discussion of results. Great job!

One suggestion is... to reflect on the way the research design related to the strength of the evidence and your confidence in the results. You talked about the value of controlling for different pre-measures (e.g., valuing computer science) but never clarified whether random assignment was used to assign students to groups.

I liked the way...this presentation was very accessible to me. Super clear articulation of the main ideas.

One suggestion is... in your discussion did you address limitations? Was there discussion of ideas for future research?

I liked the way you introduced the topic. I was hooked in! Strong intro! I loved the GIF examples of the difference. You used accessible language, the powerpoint kept it simple so we could follow along easily. You talked clearly and you were easy to follow. I felt excited to learn more.

One suggestion is I would have liked for you to have more time to talk about the results, because it looked like the results may not have been statistically significant according to the p-scores.

I liked the way... included helpful illustrations to indicate what the study was doing. The method and analysis sections were clear and well explained. The use of slides was also helpful to keep the presentation moving and did not bog down the audience. Well done

One suggestion is... spend a little less time on the setup as compared to the other sections. I think the setup was more like 3/5 minutes which didn't leave enough time to detail the results/etc. Fascinating study.

I liked the way...you used:
graphics, cues and titles for presentation (who? why?), pacing and use of time

One suggestion is...
be careful of using causal language for a correlational design ("driver")

I liked the way.. Pacing was spot on and equal attention was given to all parts. Presentation did focus on a very specific aspect of the article (women and computer science) when the study offered comparison of both men and women entering CS. Results collapsed lower and middle class? Seems like an important distinction. Visual aid was very neat and easy to follow, presenter used it to guide presentation in an appropriate way. Made it very accessible for all audiences.

One suggestion is...

I liked the way you presented complex findings in a simple (and beautifully designed) way.

One suggestion is to approach methodology with more confidence. While true you may not understand terms like "regression analyses", you could talk about what the goal was for the methods used -- was it to compare men and women? Was it to figure out what variables correlate with one another? etc.


06/22/2018 -

I liked the way...you did a very clear summary of the results, synthesizing to highlight the key findings among a lot of results.

One suggestion is... think about streamlining your introduction, mentioning only the most important parts of the problem and purpose, so you have more time to focus on the details of the study itself. I was left wanting to hear a bit more about the method, so you could shift some of the time you spent on intro to going into just a bit more detail about the method.


06/22/2018 -

I liked the way... you clarified advanced concepts and monitor audience comprehension. Your pacing was strong as well.

One suggestion is... perhaps spend a little more time describing the method and results section. I felt like the introduction was solid but the "middle part" could have used some more fleshing out. Great concept. Very interesting.


06/22/2018 -

I liked the way...you used very accessible and non technical language to explain your study. I also felt that the relevance of the research was maintained throughout your delivery.

One suggestion is... Obviously, a visual aide would be helpful to focus your audience. However, your delivery was quite clear and I was able to follow your presentation very easily.
