The Prediction of Long-Term Changes in Communication Apprehension in the Communication Classroom.
Daly, John A.; Friedrich, Gustav W.
Previous research on communication apprehension has revealed a reduction in student apprehension over a semester-length course in speech communication. Further research indicates, however, that, while most students do experience a reduction, a sizable percentage actually report an increase. This study sought to determine the difference between those individuals who report a decrease and those who report an increase. Discriminant analysis of 34 possible predictors revealed 12 significant discriminators. (Author)
