    5 7 5 75 This may make us feel better because we can say that the difference between speakers is 5 points instead of 5 points but the relative difference is the exact same There is no difference between the two ratios which means that there is no functional difference at all We could just as well be using a 10pt scale with tenths Speaker points have become too self referential I think there is a tendency when deciding speaker points to jump too quickly to the number that was a 28 quality speech this is a 29 5 quality speech etc As long as the numbers themselves are the reference point new point scales will only replicate the problem In other words we should never ask ourselves What does a 27 look like in the new scale The problem is not the scale The problem is the set of reference points If we want to differentiate more between speakers then what we need is a new rubric for interpreting those differences And it probably needs to be more detailed than Perfect 30 100 Excellent 29 5 95 Very Good 29 90 Good 28 5 85 Fair 28 80 Below Average 27 5 75 Poor 27 75 Bad 26 5 26 Many of us also teach oral communication as our day job There we evaluate speeches based upon a number of categories eg delivery composure organization sound argumentation use of evidence etc each of which can be further subdivided into specific evaluable factors One way of establishing a new rubric could be to establish reference points for speeches that accomplish each of the criteria to varying degrees Another possible rubric would be to base it on projected competitive success For instance 95s are speeches that we would expect to hear
