Lodge-Miller, Kristin A.; Elfenbein, Jill L.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v27 n4 p281-92 Dec 1994
Fifty-seven college students enrolled in their first week of introductory manual communication classes demonstrated limited ability to assess their own communication skills. A discussion of sign systems, interpreter skills, and ethics aided some students in putting their skills into perspective, but 41% continued to overestimate their abilities at midterm. (Author/JDD)
