Rubric For Minor Speeches
Distinguished
The item on the checklist was extremely well done. It would be almost impossible
(D)
to say anything negative about the item. The way the speaker handles this element
serves basically as a model for how “it should be done.” Of course there is always
room for improvement, but in this instance there isn’t much room.
Proficient
This item on the checklist is well done. There is room for improvement, but the
(P)
issues that are present with this item certainly don’t detract or distract from any
element of the speech. Further practice and refinement of the skill is needed, but no
major overhaul to the skill is necessary.
Basic
The item on the checklist was present but could use some effort on the speaker’s
(B)
part to improve it. There is something to fix and it may require that the speaker
take a different approach to it or work in practice sessions to fix it. The item
though does serve a purpose and an audience member would say the speaker is
making an attempt to communicate their message.
Minimal
There is significant work that needs to be done on the area. There is a problem and
(M)
it is persistence throughout most of the speech. Most likely there is an activity that
distracts from the speech and makes it hard for the audience to get the message.
