Final Presentation

Due: Dec 12 by 11:59pm

Weight: This assignment is worth 5% of your final grade.

Assessment: Your submission will be assessed using the rubric at the bottom of this page.

Make a slideshow presentation of your findings in your final report. You may do one of the following:

We will watch all the presentations together during the period scheduled for the exam (December 13, 2023).

Below is a list of specific items your presentation should include.

1. Format

  • Your presentation should be no longer than 10 minutes in length.
  • Each team member must present at least one slide.
  • You may use as many slides as you feel helps you communicate your ideas (but keep the 10 minute limit in mind).
  • Your title slide should include the project title, team member names, and the presentation date: December 15, 2021.
  • All slides should be numbered in the bottom-left or bottom-right corners.
  • Review the slide design guidelines discussed in class as a check list when designing your slides.

2. Recording strategies

If you choose to record your presentation, I recommend using Zoom. Have someone share their screen showing the slides and talk over the slides while recording the call.

Another option is to use a screen recording program, such as Quicktime (mac only), to record a screen recording on someone talking over the slides, though this may be challenging if not all teammates can be in the same room.

2. Content

Your slides do not need to include the detailed code used to conduct your analysis - that should be accessible from your report. Rather, the purpose of your presentation is to present the “big picture” overview and results from your project. You should discuss:

  1. An introduction of your product / policy (similar to the introduction in your report).
  2. A brief overview of your survey:
    • At least one slide depicting an example choice question
    • At least one slide with some summary stats about your sample (e.g., sample size, etc.)
  3. Your main findings:
    • Polished charts of WTP, market simulations, sensitivity analyses.
    • Your recommendations based on your findings.

4. Publish

If you recorded a video, publish your video recording on the web (e.g. via Youtube, Vimeo, etc.), then send a link to the published video in a DM to Professor Helveston on slack.

Only one team member needs to publish the video.

5. Submit

Create a zip file of your slides as a pdf / pptx / qmd (whatever you used to make your slides) and submit it on the corresponding assignment submission on Blackboard. Only one person from your team should submit.
