The new Pathways evaluation scoring gets “Personal-al”

Hmmm, Evaluations are much more standardized in Pathways than in “old” T education program.

Those details are covered in other posts here

But one issue makes me scratch my head…. The standard scoring/grading criteria that moves from feedback about the presentation to feedback about … The Person

For example, examine the scoring criteria for “Clarity:” which appears exactly the same on over 90% of the 60 or so Pathways projects

Clarity: Spoken language is clear and is easily understood (evaluator is to select 123,4, or 5)
5 – Is an exemplary public speaker who is always understood
4 – Excels at communicating using the spoken word
3 – Spoken language is clear and is easily understood
2 – Spoken language is somewhat unclear or challenging to understand
1 – Spoken language is unclear or not easily understood

5 and 4 are about the person not the presentation. I guess these would never be applied to a new member or icebreaker ?
or what exactly does “always” mean? Is it supposed to mean “always in this speech” or is the evaluator supposed to have experience with this speaker before this presentation?
