15 Chapter Public Speaking and Oral Reporting True/False Questions 1. The time-honored order of a formal speech is conclusion, introduction, bodyand perhaps a repetition of the conclusion. Register to View AnswerPage: 463 Difficulty: Medium Rationale: Introduction, body, conclusion is the traditional order. Learning Objective: 1 AACSB Standard: 1 2.

Register to View AnswerPage: 463 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Some speakers appropriately begin with the speech itself. Learning Objective: 1 AACSB Standard: 1 3. In making a speech on a technical subject to a technical audience, it would be appropriate to begin with the subject (theme) rather than an interest-gaining topic. Register to View AnswerPage: 464 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: In such cases the interest-gaining opening may not be necessary. Learning Objective: 1 AACSB Standard: 1 4. Even when you may consider it undesirable to reveal your position early in a speech, you should do so. Register to View AnswerPage: 464 Difficulty: Hard Rationale: Sometimes it is desirable to move into the subject indirectly to build your case before revealing your position. Learning Objective: 1 AACSB Standard: 1 5. Organizing the body of a speech is much like organizing the body of a reporta process of logical and orderly division. Register to View AnswerPage: 464 Difficulty: Medium Rationale: This similarity is reviewed in Chapter 15. Learning Objective: 1 AACSB Standard: 1 6. It is acceptable to bring a speech to a climactic close (end with the high point). Register to View AnswerPage: 465 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Such closes are popular and effective.

Register to View AnswerPage: 466 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: The speaker is in a very real sense a part of the message of an oral presentation. Learning Objective: 2 AACSB Standard: 1 10. If you have prepared the content of your speech well, you can assume your audience will have confidence in what you present. (In essence, the content of the report will speak for itself.) Register to View AnswerPage: 467 Difficulty: Medium Rationale: The audience has confidence first in you as a presenter, and that confidence has to be earned. The speech does not speak for itself. Learning Objective: 2 AACSB Standard: 1 11. Thoroughness is important in oral presentations, but one can overdo it. Register to View AnswerPage: 467 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: It is possible to present a topic in too much detail. Learning Objective: 2 AACSB Standard: 1 12. An effective approach to delivering a speech is to remain aloof and distant from your audience. You will appear to be more authoritative.

Register to View AnswerPage: 469, 473 Difficulty: Hard Rationale: A more relaxed posture is needed for best results. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 18. Here is good advice for a speaker: Stand perfectly straight and deliver your speech from behind a lectern or desk. Register to View AnswerPage: 469, 473 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Relaxed posture and confident walking make the speaker more effective in the delivery of the report. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 213 Chapter 15 Public Speaking and Oral Reporting 19. Some walking while making an oral presentation can be effective. Register to View AnswerPage: 469 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: If used moderately and strategically, walking can be effective. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 20. Smiles, grimaces, and frowns can be used effectively in oral presentations. Register to View AnswerPage: 469 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: They have communication effect and should be used. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 21. Here is good advice for a speaker: Make eye contact with your audience and use gestures to emphasize points. Register to View AnswerPage: 469 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Both are essential techniques in effective speech delivery. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 22. Because many people do not like people to look them in the eye, oral presenters should take care not to look at their audiences. Register to View AnswerPage: 469 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Eye contact is most important. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 23. Gestures are strong and precise means of communication. Register to View AnswerPage: 469 Difficulty: Medium Rationale: They may be strong, but they are not precise. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 24. An effective speaker maintains a consistent pitch and speed as he or she speaks. Register to View AnswerPage: 470 Difficulty: Medium Rationale: The effective speaker varies both pitch and speed to add interest or emphasis to the presentation. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 214 Chapter 15 Public Speaking and Oral Reporting 25. A simple speech presented at a deliberately slow pace is likely to be poorly received.

Variety in voice force is essential for interest and emphasis in oral presentations. Register to View AnswerPage: 470 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: This point is made in Chapter 15. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 27. As pauses detract from the message, they have no place in speech making. Register to View AnswerPage: 470 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: They can be detracting, but they can be used effectively to assist the communication. Learning Objective: 3 AACSB Standard: 1 28. While discussing the content of a visual (graphic), a speaker should look at the visual when the audience should look at it. Register to View AnswerPage: 472 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: A speaker should look at a visual when the audience should look at it. He or she should talk to the audience. Learning Objective: 4 AACSB Standard: 1 29. Effective visuals (graphics) may be as effective as the speaker's words themselves in conveying an oral message. Register to View AnswerPage: 471 Difficulty: Medium Rationale: Because listeners may miss the speaker's words, effective visuals (graphics) may be vital to the success of the presentation. Learning Objective: 4 AACSB Standard: 1 30. Visuals (graphics) for oral presentations should be selected primarily for their dramatic effect. Register to View AnswerPage: 471 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: How well they communicate should be the primary consideration. Learning Objective: 4 AACSB Standard: 1 215 Chapter 15 Public Speaking and Oral Reporting 31. Visuals should be used only to convey minor parts of the report message. Major points are best conveyed by the speaker directly. Register to View AnswerPage: 471 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Visuals carry key messages of the report. Learning Objective: 4 AACSB Standard: 1 32. Here is additional good advice for a speaker: Look at visuals only when the audience is looking at them. Look back at the audience when your discussion of the visual is complete. Register to View AnswerPage: 472 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Though it is tempting to "talk to" the visual, you must turn your attention back to the audience once your discussion of the visuals is complete. Learning Objective: 4 AACSB Standard: 1 33. Planning the content and physical aspects is especially important for team (collaborative) presentations. Register to View AnswerPage: 473 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Planning contributes to the coherence of the presentation. Learning Objective: 5 AACSB Standard: 1 34.

Learning Objective: 6 AACSB Standard: 1 216 Chapter 15 Public Speaking and Oral Reporting 36. The standards of correctness in oral reporting are more flexible than the standards of correctness in written reporting. Register to View AnswerPage: 475 Difficulty: Medium Rationale: Oral reporting allows conversational style, rhythmic pacing of structure, and the use of colloquial expressions. Learning Objective: 6 AACSB Standard: 1 37. The need for a report objective is not so stringent in an oral report as it is in a written report. Register to View AnswerPage: 475 Difficulty: Easy Rationale: Oral reports have the same need for a clearly defined objective. Learning Objective: 6 AACSB Standard: 1 38. The organization requirements for a report presented orally and in writing could differ. Register to View AnswerPage: 474-75 Difficulty: Hard Rationale: They could differ sharply, as explained in Chapter 15. Learning Objective: 6 AACSB Standard: 1 39.

A virtual presentation is one delivered over the whether Internet to an audience down the street or around the world.
