Learning Exercise: Exploring Individual Communication Styles

Course: Speech I

This assignment was used as an introduction to freshman Speech I. It was used
after a lengthy discussion of communication.

Students were each given a laptop computer and were told to take the test and
print the results for later discussion. The test took approximately 10 minutes
for each student to take and the discussion took about 20 minutes.

The test is very helpful and the average highschool student can take the test
with success. However, the results are limited unless you are willing to pay
for more detailed analysis.

Our class still found this to be an excellent spring-board for discussion.
