UROP Presentation Rubric

All UROP research and creative works presentation applications are reviewed by members of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Council (UROC) and/or ad hoc faculty reviewers from UHM based on the criteria shown in the UROP Presentation Rubric. Once the application evaluation and scoring are complete, the sum of all scores will be divided by 6 (the number of criteria) to create a score on a 4.0 scale. All components must be included for consideration.
