dc.description.abstractThis thesis explored the findings of 140 colleges and high schools nationally to construct a criteria from which Ball State University could construct an exemption program. This study found that a valid means for exemption in speech included the presentation of a speech and taking an examination. The speech's length should be from five to eight minutes, selected by the high school student, evaluated by the college emphasizing content, organization, grammar, vocabulary, eye contact, and delivery. The written examination, composed by the college, should cover the fundamentals of speaking, discussion, parliamentary procedure, and the different types of speeches.The thesis defined a "top" high school speech student as one who used his speaking ability outside the classroom, obtained awards for his activity, had a variety of experiences in all areas of speech, had taken one year of speech and earned an "A," and had obtained the National Forensic League's (NFL) Degree of Distinction and/or accumulated a determined number of NFL points set up by the college.
