Milestones of Anticipatory Public Speaking Anxiety.
Behnke, Ralph R.; Sawyer, Chris R.
Communication Education, v48 n2 p165-72 Apr 1999
Finds that both state and trait anxiety levels during three pre-performance events were ordered in a quadratic, v-shaped episodic pattern; the highest level of anticipatory anxiety occurred just before speaking, the second-highest level occurred at the time the assignment was announced and explained, and the lowest level occurred during the time students were preparing their speeches.
