Week 9 Prepare Persuasive Speech Outline Drafts


Thursday June 2

Hi Students,

You did the Personal Report of Communication Apprehension (PRCA-24) during
the first few weeks of the quarter. Having taken the speech class, we
want you to help us assess your current level of communication
apprehension by doing a post test of the same survey.

The results of this PRCA-24 survey will be used primarily to help
improve instructional activities and student learning. ALL STUDENT
INFORMATION INCLUDED IN THIS SURVEY IS CONFIDENTIAL. You should easily
be able to complete the survey in 15 minutes or less. The procedure and
survey are identical as the first one you took. There is one
additional, free form question. You can access the survey at:
