Catastropic Impairment and Student Expectancy: Multi-Media Experiences.
Linde, T. F.; And Others
Three groups of college students were exposed to a 22 minute interview with a cerebral palsied person, in either an audio, video, or transcript format. An expectancy questionnaire covering such aspects as academic and vocational achievements, communication with the public, ability to handle put downs, and effectiveness of sexual expression was administered before and after exposure to the disabled person through one of the formats. Findings replicated an earlier study of M. Everhart's, which showed no single trend, but some items reflecting more sensitivity to video and others to transcript formats. (CL)
