Presentation Scoring Rubric - 80% on this rubric is passing - pass or fail grade is given

General Assignment: Oral Presentation - 30 minutes long with extra 7 to 10 minutes for questions. Rule of thumb of 2 minutes per slide. Documents required are 15 Slides (the Hand-out also must have typed Notes on the Slides) - 1st slide is title, 2nd is objective, 12 are content, last is summary; about 5 to 6 bullets per slide; use STI template; reasonable font size. The following applies to students admitted to STI's MSISE or MSISM program on or after 10/19/2010: MGT 305 Technical Communication & Presentation Skills for Security Professionals, must be taken and the assessment must be passed soon after the student is admitted (at least before the student does the first Gold paper while in the master's program, First Presentation, Group Discussion & Written Project, Joint the Written Project). This will be in place of the "Dry Run" that students presently do via Skype (with camera) before the First Presentation (based on Gold) receives the go-ahead to be scheduled in front of a SANS audience and grader. On the day of the scheduled Presentation: Student must check the presentation room at least one hour before the master's presentations are to begin, to determine that all necessary equipment is available including screen(s), projector(s), microphone, recorder. Also, at least a half-hour before start time, the hand-outs & audience evaluation forms should be in the room. If the student sees a problem, he/she must act to resolve it by contacting the SANS Conference Planner regarding A/V equipment, or contacting the SANS on-site Facilitator Manager/Bookstore Manager regarding hand-outs & evaluation forms.
