What is the 3D Model?

The 3D Presentation Skills Self Assessment and Peer Assessment Tools were adapted from the requirements of the unit of competency BSBCMM401 Make a presentation from the BSB Business Services Training package (Industry Skills Council 2016). Elements of the unit of competency were categorised under three essential strategies for delivering professional presentations: design, develop, and deliver.

The 3D Presentation Skills Self Assessment Tool was designed using a five point Likert scale (strongly disagree through to strongly agree) which allows students to self-rate performance against statements in each criteria. Tips for improving performance are generated by calculating the number of incidences of each rating level for each of the three elements of professional presentations.

The self assessment tool was designed to be used alongside the 3D Presentation Skills Peer Assessment Tool to facilitate calibrated judgement. Elements are categorised under the same three professional communication elements (design, development and delivery). Peer raters apply a 5-point Likert scale (strongly disagree through to strongly agree) to provide peer feedback on presentation performance. Recipients of the feedback are able to compare these ratings to a self assessment of their performance and skills. Open ended questions provide an opportunity for the peer rater to provide comments around specific areas for improvement or of achievement.

The 3D Presentation Skills Self and Peer Assessment Tools can be used as an online app or versions of tools suitable for use as hardcopies are available for download from http://doctoralteaching.org/professional-presentations-toolkit/.

What is the 5S Model?

The 5S Aligned Presentation Skills Self Assessment and Peer Assessment Tools adapted the 3D Presentation Skills Self Assessment Tool by applying Whetten & Cameron’s (2011) 5S framework as a structuring device. The five elements of this framework are: presentation strategy; presentation structure; presentation support; presentation style; and presentation supplements.
