Relationships among Communication Apprehension, Reading Achievement, Teacher-Perceived Communication Apprehension, and Intelligence.
Watson, Arden K.; And Others
A study examined relationships among communication apprehension in elementary students, teacher perception of student communication apprehension, intelligence, and reading achievement. Subjects, 244 public elementary school students aged 7-12 in grades 2-6, completed a battery of tests measuring communication apprehension, teacher perception of communication apprehension, reading achievement, and intelligence. Results only tentatively supported the assumption that teachers can and do perceive communication apprehension among children, and did not indicate a significant relationship between communication apprehension and reading achievement or intelligence. (Two tables of data are included, and 29 references are attached.) (SR)
