Abstract

The aim of this study was to compare the performance between the oral and written speeches of students of the Health area that use active teaching methodologies. Thus, it was designed a study of observational, transversal and analytical nature, comparing the notes of oral and written productions (portfolios) of students of a Health course that fully utilizes the active methodologies. The sample consisted of 25 students, 23 female and two male, with an average age of 23 (± 5 years). For statistical analysis we used the Wilcoxon tests and the Pearson correlation test, with 5% significance level. There was a lower student performance in the written speech (6,73 ± 1,87)  when compared to the oral (7,66 ± 2,08), with a statistically significant difference between both of them (p<0,01), with a strong correlation between the average obtained in the two modalities evaluated (R=0,723). It can be concluded that students present more difficulty in written speeches when compared to the oral ones, revealing that even with the use of active methodologies, the improvement of written communication still is necessary between the students of the studied sample.
