Summary

The purpose of the study was to determine whether higher shorthand speeds were achieved by high school students in a 1-year shorthand course through the use of Simplified Gregg Shorthand or through the use of Diamond Jubilee (DJ) Gregg Shorthand. The control group consisted of 75 students enrolled in Simplified Shorthand during the years 1957-1963, and the experimental group consisted of 45 students enrolled in DJ Shorthand during the years 1963-64 and 1964-65. A statistical test of differences in I.Q., freshman and sophomore grade averages, and freshman and sophomore grade averages, and freshman and sophomore English grade averages indicated that the Simplified Shorthand group was a significantly (.05 level) more capable group than the DJ group in the three areas measured. Gregg Awards Tests (60 words a minute for 5 minutes) were administered to each group each month from January through May. The percentage of students who qualified with an accuracy of 95 percent or better was determined. The DJ group showed a higher cumulative percentage of achievement throughout the entire testing period. However, the difference was significant at the .05 level for the month of March only. It was concluded that an inferior group using DJ Shorthand will perform as well as a superior group using Simplified Shorthand. (PS)
