datasetposted on 26.05.2020 by N. (Ni) Kang, Ding Ding
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The data was collected in an experiment which studied two practicing techniques for enhancing speech performance and people’s training satisfaction. A randomized controlled trial was conducted to compare practicing in front of a virtual audience with another practicing technique whereby the presenter had to imagine an audience while practicing. Individuals practiced their presentations in three training sessions with either a virtual audience or an imaginary audience. Participants’ performance was assessed in a closing session where they delivered their speech in front of a human audience.
