Your presentation thoroughly explained the similarities and differences between fundamental and technical analyses using three or more relevant examples. However, there were no examples of equations used for company analysis. Next time, include equations such as return on equity calculations or return it asset calculations and discuss them for full credit.

Score: three.

The presentation was organized and balanced, professionally presented with minimal errors, used audience-specific language and tone, and was fun to read. This was evident with the submission of a well-prepared PowerPoint presentation.

Score: four.

The notes area on each slide was used to expand on fundamental and technical analyses with substantial explanations and examples. Also, the submission included a reference page. This was evident with the request for the PowerPoint presentation with the completed notes section on the reference page.

Score: four.

Overall score: three.
