A laptop computer is being used as an evaluation tool for the Oral Expression course at The Ohio State University. The Department of Agricultural Education is field testing a computer program that is able to record the evaluator's observations. The program utilizes a bank of pre-programmed instructor comments. The comments give students prescriptive advice in order to improve their presentations. The comments are divided by subject headings such as: stage presence, visual aids, gestures, organization, power of expression, and conclusion. Each comment has a three digit identification code for retrieval purposes.
