with the content. Also, possibly having audience come in with pre
written questions and pdf files so that they don’t have to spend time
trying to find something to use.
Analysis and Summary of Audience Assessment
Directions: Record assessment data into Assessment Data Table (see end of document). Include copies of assessment tool with submission. Include at least one graph in your summary.
Participation satisfaction was assessed using a Google Form. I had already provided all of my staff members with access to the
presentation via Google Slides. At the conclusion of the presentation, I had all of the teachers click on the link to the Google Form, and
answer a few questions about the presentation. The staff answered questions such as, how easily the content was, to understand,
how likely they would be to use the assessment tool in their classroom, if they would like more help getting to know GoFormative, and
any other questions they might have for me.
