Abstract

Normative data for the Personal Report of Confidence as a Speaker (PRCS; Paul, 1966), a measure of public-speaking anxiety, were collected by administering the PRCS to 1109 college students. PRCS scores were examined in relation to gender, race, age, and grade-point average. No significant between-group differences were found. The Endings indicate that levels of public-speaking anxiety are generally constant across gender, race, and age. Normative data for all scores across Caucasian and African-American subjects are presented. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
