College Students' Preference for Compressed Speech Lectures.
Primrose, Robert A.
To test student reactions to compressed-speech lectures, tapes for a general education course in oral communication were compressed to 49 to 77 percent of original time. Students were permitted to check them out via a dial access retrieval system. Checkouts and use of tapes were compared with student grades at semester's end. No significant difference in grades was apparent among those who used tapes and those who did not. Students also stated that they preferred compressed tapes, although not by large margins. (SK)
