Online Guide to Meeting Assignments

Purpose   Tick  Listen carefully to everything that is said during the meeting. The aim is to test everyone's listening skills by preparing some questions to ask them.
What to do during your assignment Tick  Listen carefully during the night, and prepare questions based on what was said or did, the content of any assignment or what was learnt.
Tick  Ask the questions to the whole room. Answers will be called out to you.
  Tick The questions should be able to be answered based purely from good listening skills. They shouldn't be trivial, but neither are you testing people's skills at cryptic thinking.
  Tick It is good to ask questions on important points that were learned during the evening eg "According to Elizabeth's educational session, what is the most important job of an evaluator?"
  Tick Use your imagination to make the assignment both entertaining and a method of revision. You can limit who can answer, award small prizes or make it a written assessment.
  Tick  You will need to prepare at least 10 questions, but you may well prepare more questions than you find can fit into your time. When your time is up, end your assignment, even if you have more questions prepared. This shows consideration and professionalism.
  Tick If the meeting is running close to or overtime, make your report concise.
Tick  Hand back to the person who called you to the front, either the General Evaluator or the Chairman.
