The formating on this question was bad. Review this to make sure I got the wording of the questions right.
1. The steps of perception checking are: Tell them what you are seeing or hearing, explain what you think might be going on, ask them if your interpretation is correct.
2. Your friend Steve is driving erratically. You think it is because he is mad at you for teasing him about his decision to join the circus. Proper response: Steve, I noticed that you are driving faster than usual and taking turns really hard. I think you are mad about that comment I made about being a clown.
3. Your boss called a meeting and said you did not need to attend. You think it is because they are considering eliminating your position. Proper response: Last week layoffs were purposed, this week I am uninvited to a meeting I usually attend. Are you considering laying me off?
4. Your significant other calls and says they will be late coming home for the third night in a row. You think they have been going out drinking with someone. Proper response: Dear, this is the third night in a row you have called to say you are coming home late. I am worried you are going out drinking with Sam again. Is that why you have been coming home late?
5. If you know someone well then you know what they are up to--you can count on your perceptions being accurate. False (not always)
6. Let them know that you do not appreciate what they are doing, tell them what you want them to do to correct the situation, follow-up to make sure they have done it.
Note: Don't understand what the question is here. Is something missing or is this a multiple choice that is misplaced?
7. If you are observant then it is easier to see where another person's perception is coming from. True
8. A person's behavior does not always indicate what you think it does. True
9. You can avoid some uncomfortable situations if you check your perceptions about what is going on. True
10. Perception checking is one communication tool - if you are right or if you are wrong - you then move on and use other communication tools. True
11. Others will always welcome your perception checking when you use it. False
12. Perception checking can help reduce conflict and misunderstanding. True
13. Your friend Jan has been moping around all day. You think it is because she got in a fight with her boyfriend Bill. Proper response: Wow Jan, you are still in your pajamas. I think maybe you and Bill got in a fight. Is that why you seem so down?
14. Your significant other has been exceptionally nice tonight. You have the nagging feeling they are about to ask you for something you will not want to give/do. Proper response: Last response is cut short. "Wow great meal, my favorite movie.... if there were more nights like this I might..." What is the rest of this response?
Hope this helps!

Channels make a difference.
Environment and noise affect communication.
Sending and receiving are usually simultaneous.
Meanings exist in and among people.
Research conducted by Patrick O'Sullivan to learn about preferences for face-to-face versus mediated channels for sending messages concluded that:
Positive messages should be sent using mediated channels.
Mediated channels are appealing for sending negative messages.
Face-to-face is always better than mediated channels.
Channels people choose for sending messages don't contribute to communication competence.
Negative messages should be sent face-to-face.
Environments are also referred to as:
