Every business educator is aware that the spelling ability of beginning office workers is often criticized. There are several articles in the professional publications suggesting techniques used by teachers to cope with the problem, but most teachers leave to elementary and English teachers the task to develop this skill. Too frequently teachers overlook spelling and grammatical errors made by students because these are by-products of a more important goal which they are trying to reach.
The increased demand for a better trained office worker necessitates an examination of the spelling ability of business education students. It is important to know whether there are weaknesses and, if possible, the causes of these difficulties.
