The Most Frequently Used Self-Report Instruments in Communication.
DeWine, Sue; Pearson, Judy C.
To provide an assessment of current instruments being used by communication scholars, investigators examined and identified the most frequently used instruments that had been published in the past five years in the nine major speech communication journals. Each article was examined for the identification of the instruments used, constructs measured, reliability and validity tests completed on the instruments, and the type of subjects incorporated to test the instrument. Correlation with other instruments, use as an independent or dependent variable, and the original citation for the report of the development of the instrument were noted. The data were sorted by the name of the instrument used, the construct studied, publication location of the article, and the publication location of the original instrument. The analysis revealed that among the most popular instruments were (1) the Personal Report of Communication Apprehension (PRCA)-College; (2) PRCA-25; (3) Communicator Style; (4) Interpersonal Attraction Style; (5) Bem's Sex Role Inventory; (6) International Communication Association Audit Survey; (7) State-Trait Anxiety Inventory; and (8) Job Description Index. Six pages of references are appended. (HOD)
