Evaluations can enrich your speech making experience by providing feedback and suggestions for improvement. Adapting your speech to the evaluations you receive can help build your view of yourself as a good speaker. Therefore, the statement "Effective evaluation centers only on what needs to be improved" is not true.

    Which of the following is true about evaluations?

    • A.

      Evaluations in the public speaking classroom will differ from evaluations in a public forum.

    • B.

      In a public forum, evaluations will focus on making you a better speaker.

    • D.

      Evaluations in the public speaking classroom will be the same as evaluations in a public forum.

    Correct Answer
    A. Evaluations in the public speaking classroom will differ from evaluations in a public forum.
    Explanation
    In the public speaking classroom, evaluations will differ from evaluations in a public forum. This means that the criteria and focus of the evaluations will vary between these two settings. In a public forum, the evaluations aim to help the speaker improve their speaking skills. On the other hand, in the classroom, evaluations solely concentrate on assessing the effectiveness of the speaker's message. Therefore, the emphasis and objectives of evaluations in these two contexts are not the same.

      Succinct

    • B.

      Compact

    • C.

      Lifelong

    • D.

      Optional

    Correct Answer
    C. Lifelong
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "lifelong" because growth and evaluation are ongoing processes that should continue throughout a public speaker's entire life. Public speaking skills can always be improved, and evaluation helps identify areas for growth and development. Therefore, it is important for a public speaker to view growth and evaluation as lifelong processes.
