Abstract

This study explored the relationship between students' communicative attributes (i.e., argumentativeness, assertiveness, Machiavellianism, and verbal aggressiveness) and their out-of-class communication with instructors. Undergraduate students (N = 245) completed a series of self-report measures. The results of correlational analyses indicated that students' self-reported argumentativeness and assertiveness were associated positively with their tendencies to engage in out-of-class communication with their instructors whereas students' self-reported Machiavellianism and verbal aggressiveness were not associated significantly with their tendencies to engage in out-of-class communication with their instructors. Implications and limitations are considered.
