      University of California Presentation Evaluator Certification Course Logo

      Course Overview:

      The purpose of the California 4-H Presentation Program is to help youth improve their public speaking abilities.  Presentation events are one strategy to reach this goal by allowing youth to practice the knowledge and skills gained and receive constructive feedback on their progress.  This requires that evaluations be accurate and consistent. 

      The Presentation Evaluator Certification is designed to prepare individuals to evaluate California 4-H presentations accurately and consistently.  This course consists of two parts:

      1. Presentation Evaluator Orientation Course which is designed to provide an overview of the presentation program while offering best practices on how to effectively complete a presentation evaluation assessment and provide written feedback.
      2. Presentation Format Calibration Certifications which offer individuals an opportunity to measure their level of evaluation expertise for each presentation format through a series of calibration exams.

      Learners who successfully calibrate each presentation format with a score of 80% or greater will receive an electronic badge, certificate, and are certified to evaluate on that specific presentation format.  When all presentation formats have been successfully completed, the individual will earn the "Master 4-H Presentation Evaluator" achievement badge and certificate.

      This course is designed for individual participation and not for group settings.

      Who Should Attend:

      The course is designed for California 4-H volunteers or program partners, ages 16 and up, who desire to be a presentation evaluator at county, regional, or state presentation events.
