Use of all 4 parameters of ASL were clearly defined and well established. Used appropriate form correctly throughout most or the entire presentation.
Meets Expectations

The use of parameters are used accurately 80% of the presentation. The form is somewhat accurate and clear to read, yet produced few errors across parameters.

Use of inaccurate form of most parameters, or is not produced clearly, but was able to produce some form with 50% accuracy.
Needs Improvement

Student lacks in demonstrating accurate and clear use of parameters during the entire presentation. Produced several errors in form, that makes it hard to recognize.

Facial Expressions/NMS
- NMS = non-manual signals
- Mouth morphemes
- Eye contact/gaze
- raised/lowered eyebrows
- Role shifting

Facial expressions/NMS were consistent, accurate, and clearly expressed. Student is able to demonstrate multiple expressions and NMS during most or the entire presentation.
Meets Expectations

Student was able to demonstrate 80% accuracy in facial expressions/NMS, but at times expression was neutral. There were few errors that occurred.

Facial expressions/NMS were mostly neutral, or was not clearly expressed. Or used facial expression/NMS inaccurately throughout the presentation (i.e. eye contact/gaze was used inappropriately). Was able to express with 50% accuracy.
Needs Improvement

Does not demonstrate any use of facial expressions/NMS throughout the presentation, or produces several inappropriate errors.

Structuring Space
- Index position (i.e. pointing, shifting, placement)
- Spatial relationship
- Spatial agreement

Use of space is consistent, and demonstrates accuracy through index positioning, and spatial relationship/agreement during most or the entire presentation.
Meets Expectations

Use of space is mostly consistent and produces with 80% accuracy. Student was able to self correct their errors for some indexing, and spatial relationship/agreement when recognized.

Student demonstrated 50% accuracy with some clarity when structuring space. There were still multiple errors in spatial relationship/agreement.
Needs Improvement

Produces several inaccuracies across spatial relationship/agreement. Student is unable to demonstrate the use of space, therefore makes the message unclear during the presentation.

Sign Accuracy/Production
- Is it conceptually accurate in ASL?
- sign production
- fingerspelling
- numbers
- lexical items

Sign production is conceptually accurate in ASL and are clear and shows no errors during most or the entire presentation.
Meets Expectations

Sign production is clear and accurate about 80% of the time throughout the presentation; produces a few errors that are somewhat mixed with English concepts, but corrects self in ASL.

Student demonstrated multiple errors in signing, but is able to produce 50% accuracy during the presentation. Some concepts are signed in ASL
Needs Improvement

Sign production is difficult to recognize and are inaccurate. Shows several errors, in which signing becomes full of distractions from the message they are trying to present.


Narrative flows smoothly. All pauses are natural and add to the story. The narrative travels at a natural pace without rushing or becoming slow and choppy.
Meets Expectations

Narrative has a good flow. Most pauses are natural but a few may detract from your story. The pace is good but there may be some awkward pauses or rushed areas in the narrative.

Narrative has a disrupted flow. There are several distracting pauses or rushed potions that make the narrative difficult to comprehend. Pace was either too fast making it difficult to follow or too slow making it hard to comprehend.
Needs Improvement

The presentation was unprepared. Student did not practice flow and the narrative came off chaotic. Story was very difficult to understand .
