PASS Presentation Evaluation Results

Just as I did last year I'm posting my evaluation scores for review. I co-presented with Steve Jones a session about Moving Into Management that had about 50 attendees, of which 16 of them submitted an evaluation. Scores are ok, questions aren't that useful to me as a speaker, probably of more value to those setting the schedule for next year.


What is your overall evaluation of the session?

How would you rate the usefulness of the overall information in your day to day environment?

How would you rate the speakers presentation skills?

How would you rate the speakers knowledge of the subject

How would you rate the accuracy of the session title, description, and experience level to the actual session?

How would you rate the amount of time allocated to cover the topic/session

How would you rate the quality of the presentation materials

Excellent scores. Nicely done. I didn't go to your session this year because I have ZERO interest in management. I'll be a lowly geek for life.

How/when/where did you get your scores?

Posted by Andy Warren on 15 December 2008

Thanks Grant! Nothing lowly about being a geek, but if you came to my session I might have changed your mind about management:-)

PASS emailed them to me on Friday, just mine. Usually we get the whole slate, don't know if that is coming or not (emailed them to ask).

It would be nice to see the comments if there were any.

Still, good scores. My guess is we didn't do a horrible job.

I just received mine. It included the whole list of everyone and then a drill down on my session, including comments. Evidently, I use the word "glorious" too much. Next year I'll overuse the word "nice" instead.

Oh, and, ain't no way you're getting me to move into management another inch further than I already am. Being a team lead and mentor gives me enough indigestion, thank you.

Steve - let's try not to put our names and "horrible job" too many places where Google can find it!

Grant, you must be the man! How did you get the secret stuff? Thats impressive, even glorious! Can you sing it like Lauran Branigan? We all get those words in our vocabulary from time to time, anything is better than uh and um. Easy to get the bad habit, hard to break it.

We'll have to talk more about managing!
