if you messed up while presenting a seminar...

basically i had a seminar on a play we read in class and i panicked to the point where i couldn't speak and i was shaking so my partner pretty much carried me for 70% of the presentation. I asked my teacher how i did and he said i did good, but i have a feeling he lied to me to make me feel better when i really got a 50 (i think, we're getting marked individually) do teachers usually lie about this?

There's basically no way that anybody here can answer your question with absolute certainty.

Whether or not a teacher "lies" about the quality of something you've done depends on;
1. Their personality and
2. Their standards.

I've gotten anywhere from a 70 to 100 for a presentation that was "pretty good". I've had a teacher tell me an 80 was equivalent to "doing well" when I'm typically a high-80/90 student. You get where I'm going with this, right? They won't lie for the sake of toying with you or being cruel, I'm almost sure of that. If you know your teacher well enough and you're honest with yourself, you'll know, 9 times out of 10, your mark before your teacher actually gives you some numbers.
