Taking on this role improves listening skills, critical thinking and positive feedback skills

In Toastmasters, feedback is called evaluation, and it is the heart of the Toastmasters educational program. You observe the speeches and leadership roles of your fellow club members and offer evaluations of their efforts, and they do the same for you. As evaluator, you:

  • Provide verbal and written evaluations for speakers using the Effective Evaluation manual.
  • Ask those you've been assigned to evaluate what they will present and what they wish to achieve.
  • Answer evaluation questions in the manual as objectively as possible.
  • When giving any evaluation, offer praise as well as constructive criticism.
