Abstract

This study revealed that trait communication apprehension, as measured by the Personal Report of Communication Apprehension (PRCA-24), correlates significantly with state anxiety, as measured by the Spielberger state anxiety measure, in each of four contexts. The multiple correlation between PRCA and state anxiety across four situational contexts was 69. The results are interpreted as consistent with the theoretical relationships advanced and as supportive of the PRCA as a cross-situational predictive instrument.
