Assessment 2 Elevator pitch” Video Presentation
Length Your video must be a maximum of 3 minutes [ +/- 10% – which is +/- 18 seconds.]


Task brief:
Imagine you are on an elevator. You have got in at the first floor and it will take 5 minutes to reach your desired level of the building. The person next to you, without any clinical or research experience, asks you what project you are working on. You have 3 minutes to describe your project in general terms so that this person understands:

  1. What problem you are addressing (problem statement)
  2. How you went about solving the problem (project design)
  3. And, what your project has found (outcomes)

In these three minutes you must engage this person and convince them of the relevance and importance of   your project.
Your presentation must be delivered to the class without Power Point or prompts and will be assessed on:

  • The clarity of your introduction to your project and aims
  • Thoroughness of explanation of data collection and methods
  • Clarity of presented results
  • Relevance of conclusions
  • Presentation style e.g. level of engagement, clarity of speaking
