University students' evaluations of mathematical presentations are examined in this paper, which reports on part of a pilot study about different types of presentations, regarding different topics, formats (oral or written), and discourses (process- or object-oriented). In this paper focus is on different formats; oral lectures and written texts. Students’ written comments about what is good or bad about given presentations are analysed in order to examine what students focus on when evaluating the quality of presentations. In addition, evaluations given about written and oral presentations are compared in order to examine if/how format affects students’ evaluations regarding quality.
