Williams, David E.; McGee, Brian R.; Worth, David S.
Argumentation and Advocacy, v37 n4 p198-209 Spr 2001
Reports findings of a national survey of 286 collegiate debaters on their perceptions of the benefits and disadvantages of debate participation. Finds that, despite the fragmentation of intercollegiate debate into multiple formats and debate-sponsoring organizations, students generally reported the same benefits and disadvantages of debate participation compared to those revealed in previous studies.
