    Use of evidence: 3 2.1
    Delivery skill: 4.6 2.4
    Coherence of arguments: 4.4 3
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5.3 1.8
    Identification of key points: 4.4 2.4
    Comments: You did a great job going down the flow and telling me exactly what the key points were in this round. The way you responded to and clashed with your opponent was also extremely effective.

    Some advice I have for you, try to have a few more examples and some more evidence moving forward, because at times it seemed like you were making some arguments that weren't backed up all that well by evidence.

    Great job!
    Your arguments were pretty good to start off with, but they started to fall off as the debate progressed. You completely left her first contention untouched, which ended up being a big voting issue in this debate.

    Some advice: Make sure to go down the flow and respond to the arguments your opponent makes, and in your final speech, make sure to identify exactly what the key arguments were in the round and why you won them.

    Other than that good job!

    The decision is for the Proposition: Kathleene Humphries

    Reason for Decision:

    For me, this debate came down to a few key points.

    First, the first contention of the proposition's case was completely unrefuted throughout the round. It was my biggest reason for voting for the proposition because I felt that it had the biggest impacts. No response from the opposition on this point was a major voting issue.

    Second, the opposition didn't effective defend their arguments, which, when it was all said and done, left the proposition as the winner.

    Overall, this was a great debate! Good luck to you both http://speechdebate.binghamton.edu/images/smilies/biggrin.gif
