(This will be recorded for those unable to attend the live webinar.)

 

2. Practice Session with the New Evaluation Form (Date options are below.)

The goal of the practice session is to familiarize you with the new evaluation form by providing hands-on experience with using it before the contest.

We are offering four identical practice sessions. Please plan to attend one

Two weeks before the practice sessions, we will send a link to a student entry from a previous year. We will ask you to view the entry, evaluate it on your own, and send us your evaluation, including comments. During the session, we’ll reveal the aggregated results, discuss the entry as a group, and look at some anonymous examples of comments. A webcam and microphone are desirable, but not essential. 

Four Options (Same Content) - Please choose one:

  A -- May 11, 2021, 3:00 - 4:30 pm ET   Register 

 B -- May 12, 2021, 3:00 - 4:30 pm ET   Register
