An Evaluation of the Exchange Round in the Fundamentals Course.
Katula, Richard; And Others
In the exchange round, either instructors change classrooms for a round of speeches in order to offer students a new critic or else the student goes to a new classroom on the day he or she is scheduled to speak, thus facing a new audience and instructor-critic. The present study attempts to validate the exchange round as a transfer of training technique in the fundamentals course. Specifically, three predictions were tested: the exchange round is perceived as a realistic speaking situation; the exchange round results in adherence to speech fundamentals; and the exchange round is perceived by students to be a beneficial educational experience. Student responses supported all three predictions. It is concluded from this study that the exchange round is an affective educational device for teachers of speech fundamentals. (Author/RB)
