It may be a little hard to read. Sometimes stands up straight and establishes eye contact. Slouches and/or does not look at people during the presentation. Level 3 Seems pretty prepared but might have needed a couple more rehearsals. Most information is organized in a clear, logical way. One slide or item of information seems out of place. Font formats have been carefully planned to enhance readability. Stands up straight and establishes eye contact with everyone in the room during the presentation. Level 4 Completely prepared and has obviously rehearsed. Information is organized in a clear, logical way. It is easy to anticipate the type of material that might be on the next slide.
