Measuring Trait Communication Apprehension: A Test of Rival Measurement Models of the PRCA-24.
Levine, Timothy R.; McCroskey, James C.
Communication Monographs, v57 n1 p62-72 Mar 1990
Tests three rival measurement models of a common measure of trait communication apprehension, the Personal Report of Communication Apprehension (PRCA-24). Finds that the second-order factor model better fits the data in terms of conceptual implications, psychometric properties, and empirical evidence than the linear, unidimensional model or the Guttman simplex model.
