The problem in this study is to determine if either the early-new-matter approach or the writing approach of shorthand instruction at Sidney Senior High School shows that a higher level of competency in shorthand can be attained in a shorter period of time. There is generally a lack of methods and procedures used to develop this much needed high level of shorthand competency by the students who are studying shorthand. This is an attempt to find out if either of these two methods will sufficiently produce a high level of shorthand competency. This problem is even more forcefully brought into focus when we begin to realize just how few of our students possess the necessary skills and competencies after completion of the shorthand course. In more instances than we like to admit, these students who have studied shorthand require additional training before they are sufficiently competent to use their skills on the job.
