Quiz 1: Example

Knowledge: What is monologic communication? (Ch 2)

A: One speaker takes the main responsibility for what is discussed. This is the normal way we think of communication. The lecture format allows speakers to get their views and opinions out with no interruptions from the audience.

Application: What is an occasion in which you preferred listening to someone with a formal demeanor over an informal one? (Ch 2)

A: I went to a job fair on campus and some of the presenters were in formal attire while others were informal. Even though it was easier to relate to the ones in informal attire I didn’t feel like it was a job to shoot for. The person from the PR firm was in jeans and used some slang for talking about events. It didn’t seem like a firm I would shoot for.

Analysis: What is the difference between an immediate audience and an extended one? (Ch 2)

A: An immediate audience is in front of the speaker when they are giving a speech or it is in real time. An extended audience is an audience that is not in front of the speaker. They are a bigger audience most of the time. The information the speaker gives is not immediate to them. This would be like a lecture in class versus a Youtube video.

Synthesis: In Chapter 1 we learned that meaning is contextual. How does the context change when you have an extended audience? (Ch 1 and Ch 2)

A: The context becomes fluid when you have an extended audience. The speaker would probably have to speak to a broader audience when the audience is extended. They speaker could not rely on the context around them or rely on time. Usually videos either go viral right away or aren’t watched, but you cannot depend on that. You should update your information if something changes to something to present to an extended audience.

Evaluation: “Generally, in business and professional settings, the emphasis is on efficiency and clarity.”

A: The problem I have with this statement is that it is very ethnocentric. In America the workplace may emphasize efficiency and clarity, but many countries do not. I have heard people say that in Asian countries it is much more about saving face and building relationships in the workplace. This seems to counteract the most efficient or clear communication perspective since the emphasis is on something else.
