Making the grade : self-monitoring and student public speaking performance
Everyone wants others to think as well of them as possible, particularly during structured social presentations, such as a speech. High self-monitors have an innate facility with impression management-the process of projecting a favorable social image. If a student is a high self-monitor, how might this impact his or her grades? Might low self-monitors' grades improve during the course? Surprisingly the results of this thesis showed that self-monitoring was not correlated with speech grades. Reasons for this finding and possible insights for future research are also discussed.
