The Design and Testing of an Information Retrieval System for Student-Centered Activities in the Speech Communication Curriculum.
Malandro, Loretta Ann
This study designed and tested a computerized information retrieval system for student-centered activities in the speech communication curriculum. Two systems were designed, tested, and interfaced: a classification system for coding selected activities and a computerized information retrieval system for selecting activities. Two hundred nonpackaged activities concerning nonverbal communication were selected for use. Results from the evaluation of both the classification system and the retrieval system suggest that the complete system provides an effective and efficient method for selecting activities in the area of nonverbal communication. In addition, the design for the development and testing of the classification and retrieval system may be used for the development of comparable systems for other areas of speech communication.
