Oral Communication Apprehension among Adult Learners: A Factor to Be Considered in Adult Basic Education.
Conner, Thomas N.; Williams, James A.
Adult Education Quarterly, v38 n1 p14-20 Fall 1987
The investigation attempted to determine whether oral communication apprehension was related to employment status of students enrolled in adult basic education programs. Unemployed adults demonstrated greater reticence on a measure of oral communication apprehension than did employed adults. Programs designed to maximize oral communicative confidence and skill should be considered. (Author/CH)
