Effective Speaking Chapter 4 Lhs - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Explain the set up of an introduction.

  • 2. 

    If you have a written reference list, you do not need to cite your sources in your speech.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because even if you have a written reference list, you still need to cite your sources in your speech. Citing sources is important to give credit to the original authors or creators of the information you are using, and to avoid plagiarism. A reference list alone is not enough, as it only provides a list of the sources used but does not indicate where specific information came from within the speech.

  • 3. 

    A good general research rule to follow is to use information published or collected in the last five years.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using information published or collected in the last five years is a good general research rule because it ensures that the information is up-to-date and relevant. Research in many fields is constantly evolving, and using outdated information may lead to inaccurate or incomplete findings. By using recent sources, researchers can access the most current knowledge and insights in their field, leading to more accurate and reliable research outcomes.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If you have relevant, pertinent personal knowledge on your topic, it will most likely replace the need for other research.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If you have relevant, pertinent personal knowledge on your topic, it may be helpful, but it does not necessarily replace the need for other research. Personal knowledge may be limited and biased, so it is important to also rely on other sources of information to ensure accuracy and thoroughness in your research.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You can never have too many statistics in a speech.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Having too many statistics in a speech can overwhelm the audience and make the speech less engaging and memorable. While statistics can be powerful tools for supporting arguments and providing evidence, using too many can make the speech feel dry and impersonal. It is important to strike a balance between using statistics effectively and incorporating other elements such as storytelling, anecdotes, and personal connections to keep the audience engaged and interested. Therefore, the statement that you can never have too many statistics in a speech is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Prestige testimony is testimony from a person the audience  recognizes as an expert in a field related to your topic.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Prestige testimony is not necessarily from a person the audience recognizes as an expert in a field related to your topic. It refers to testimony from a person who is recognized as prestigious or influential in general, regardless of their expertise in the specific field being discussed. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Conducting research can help build critical thinking skills.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Conducting research involves gathering and analyzing information from various sources, which requires critical thinking skills. Research requires evaluating the credibility and relevance of sources, analyzing data, and drawing logical conclusions. By engaging in research, individuals are exposed to different perspectives, learn to question assumptions, and develop their ability to think critically and make informed decisions. Therefore, conducting research can indeed help build critical thinking skills.

Analogies can be helpful in simplifying complex concepts or ideas and making them more relatable and understandable.

      Descriptive statistics

    • C.

      Facts Facts Facts

    • D.

      Trends

    Correct Answer
    A. Inferential statistics
    Explanation
    Inferential statistics refers to the process of drawing conclusions or making predictions about a larger population based on a smaller sample. It involves using statistical techniques to analyze the data from the sample and then generalize the findings to the larger population. This allows researchers to make inferences and draw conclusions about the population without having to collect data from every individual in the population. Descriptive statistics, on the other hand, focuses on summarizing and describing the characteristics of the sample or population without making any inferences or predictions.

    When Ricco was speaking about the benefits of weight  training, he included the statements of his friend, Beau, who got into shape with the use of free weights. This is an example of _____ testimony. 

    • A.

      Personal

    • B.

      Prestige

    • C.

      Lay

    • D.

      Expert

    Correct Answer
    C. Lay
    Explanation
    Ricco including the statements of his friend, Beau, who got into shape with the use of free weights, is an example of lay testimony. Lay testimony refers to the statements or opinions provided by individuals who are not experts in a particular field but have personal experiences or observations related to the topic. In this case, Beau's personal experience with weight training serves as lay testimony to support the benefits of weight training.
