Some Effects of Apprehension on Writing Performance.
Book, Virginia
The purpose of this study was to determine whether persons identified as having either a low or a high degree of apprehension toward writing encode information differently. Behavioral patterns similar to those exhibited by persons who are apprehensive about speech were investigated. Results of a study of 19 high-apprehensive and 21 low-apprehensive college students supported the prediction that written messages produced by high apprehensives and low apprehensives differ significantly in structure, language use, and amount of information conveyed. Patterns similar to those exhibited by persons who are apprehensive about oral communication emerged through content analysis. (Author/AA)
