Final Presentations

In the final presentations, every group must present their proposal. These presentations will be graded.

Presentation Format

The format of these practice presentations is as follows:

  1. Group presentations. Each group presents about their project; all members of the group must present for (approximately) the same time.
  2. Duration: 10 minutes. Each group has 10 minutes to present. Groups should aim to talk for exactly 10 minutes (plus/minus 30 seconds): not too long, nor too short.
  3. Questions: faculty members will ask questions after your presentation. Be prepared to answer and explain your project further. Questions should be shared by each group member (don't let one person answer all questions).
  4. All students must wear SIIT uniform on the presentation day

Supporting Material

Each group is allowed to use as many slides as they wish. They may also present demos/videos. Use either your own laptop or the PC in the room. Test your presentation in the room before the session (e.g. the day before or at least 30 minutes before start of the session). Failures or delays in starting the presentation due to lack of preparation will result in score reductions.

You must submit your slides in both original format (e.g. powerpoint, keynote, latex) and as PDF on SVN by 12noon Tuesday 15 October 2013, e.g.


Presentation Contents

Presentation should cover most main sections from the Project Proposal (however you do not need to follow the same order as the Project Proposal, e.g. you may choose to omit the schedule, you may rename and re-order the sections). You should aim to convince the committee that you have good understanding of the problem area and have a good plan of what you need to do to complete the project.


Each student must attend the entire session that they will present in (see Schedule below). For example, a student in session A must attend all other presentations in session A. Students are not required to attend presentations from other sessions.


One or more faculty members or TAs will be in each session. They will provide scores, and optionally questions/comments, for each presentation. Scores from faculty members will contribute to your grade.

In addition, every student in the same session must evaluate all other presentations in the same session. For example, a student in session A will give scores to all other students in session A. It is important that these evaluations are fair and thoughtful, e.g.:

  • Give a score based on the presentation, not based on what you know about the student or their project.
  • Be consistent in your scoring across groups.
  • Don't be too generous (or too mean). For example, the top scores should be given to only a few groups, not all groups. Your average score across all groups in a session should be about "Average"!
  • Listen to all presentations; don't give random scores.
  • If you miss a presentation for some reason (e.g. bathroom), then no score should be given (don't guess a score). If you miss 1 or 2 presentations, you will not be penalised.

Below is an example of the student evaluation form (right click and view image to zoom in).

Student evaluation form example

The evaluations other students do NOT count towards your grade for Project Development. They are just for feedback. However failure to attend or evaluate most other groups in a fair and thoughtful manner will result in penalties in your grade.

Exchange Students

Students overseas at the time of the presentations need to present in Session F. The student(s) in the group that are overseas will present via Skype. Any students in the group that are not overseas must present in person. 

We will attempt a video call using Skype - if that is unsuccessful then we will revert to voice only. You should have your slides on SVN before the presentation. They will be viewed by the committee locally while you present (e.g. when you say "next slide" the committee will move to the next slide on their local copy; you do not show the slides using Skype).

Students must email Steven Gordon ( with their Skype address before 12noon Tuesday 15 October. I will respond with my Skype address.
