Feedback is defined as “information in response to an inquiry, experiment, etc,” (Houghton, A. 2009). This means to be given information regarding the matter of what you are testing. Our experiment was how to present a presentation and using the feedback given to analyse where the strengths and weaknesses were. The feedback was made up of different categories and focused on how the group presented the presentation. On the feedback slip there were boxes and each box was given a subheading and a blank space for the mark, 1 being the lowest to 5 being the highest, and a comment box for the audience to comment on what was good and what could be improved. With the feedback provided from the class, this essay will look at strengths and weaknesses of the presentation as well as how to develop these weaknesses so that they become strengths in future presentations.

The conclusion scored 71%, refer to appendix 3 and 10c. The scores were varied on this subject. A few comments picked out were that th...

... be significantly improved if the group rehearsed through the presentation more. Also if the group performed the presentation in front of a small group of people. Being able to do this would allow the group to become less stressed at performing to a larger group and become more relaxed at talking to people. If these weaknesses are worked on, then they shall become strengths in future presentations.
In conclusion, while the group managed to perform to a high level, there are still certain aspects to improve on. These improvements need to be worked on so each subsection can gain higher marks next time.
