212 Spring 2012 Final Testout Results
Thank you again for your participation in the
testout Friday. All of the judges noted that they had learned
something from each of the speeches they heard and that is the
fundamental function of any informative speech. As you know the
212 testout sets a high bar for passing. Communication skill
building is a life long process. Everyone can benefit from having more
opportunities to listen to the choices other speakers make and to
create, revise and deliver speeches.
Earning a PASS is an affirmation that through the knowledge base demonstrated by your work on the written exam and the outline as well as by the skill level demonstrated in the speech you gave today you demonstrated B level proficiencies. Earning a NO PASS ought not be taken as a deep criticism of your overall skills as a speaker; all of us have strengths and weaknesses. It is a clear message that the speech given Friday did not meet our course requirements for a B. It also suggests that the judges are confident that enrolling in a public speaking course will help you enhance the skills you already bring to the platform. If you want specific feedback on your performance please contact Dr. Slagell [firstname.lastname@example.org] who will refer to you an appropriate judge.
Congratulations to the following students who successfully passed both the written and oral portions of the SpCm 212 Testout. The T credit you have earned is typically processed at the end of the semester along with final grades for the term.
not earn a B or better on the oral presentations today. No
T credit has been earned.
We do allow
students to make
a second attempt, but students need to begin the process all over again
by registering with the Testing Office (and paying their fee), taking
the written exam (which
may be updated) to qualify for the oral portion of the testout and then
presenting a speech. The written exam can be taken
any time this semester; the oral performance will be scheduled the
Friday before classes begin for next semester.
hope to see you this semester in the SpCm 212 classroom. We
also teach SpCm 212 during the summer sessions: an early start 4 week
version of the lecture/lab class begins in May and an 8 week
stand-alone section of the class (no lecture/lab, just one small class) begins in
