As a part of my teaching and doctoral research, I use the Personal Report of Public Speaking Anxiety (originally developed by James McCroskey). This is a valuable tool for understanding types and levels of communication apprehension. Learners who are new to public speaking may find it helpful to know where they stand with public speaking anxiety, and this tool helps clarify exactly what many speakers are nervous about.
This data will also play a role in my research and writing on communication, leadership, and education.
If you have a moment, please consider taking this survey. It should take approximately 5-10 minutes.
