RECOGNITION AND INTERPRETATION OF PICTORIAL STIMULI FOUND WITHIN EDUCATIONAL STILL PICTURES.
BERGESON, CLARENCE O.
THE DISCRIMINATION OF PICTURES AND PICTURE ELEMENTS AMONG 5TH-, 8TH-, AND 11TH-GRADERS WAS STUDIED (1) TO DETERMINE THE DIFFERENCES IN INTERPRETATION OF SPECIFIC STATIC VISUAL STIMULI WHEN PRESENTED THROUGH TWO TYPES OF ILLUSTRATIONS (PHOTOGRAPHS AND OUTLINE DRAWINGS OF THE SAME SCENES) AND (2) TO GAIN INSIGHT INTO VARIATION IN THE INTERPRETATION OF THESE STIMULI. THE DEPENDENT VARIABLE IN THE STUDY WAS THE RESPONSE OF THE SUBJECT TO THE ILLUSTRATION. WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THE STUDY, LINE DRAWINGS AND PHOTOGRAPHS WERE EQUALLY EFFECTIVE IN OBTAINING CORRECT RECOGNITION AND INTERPRETATION OF STIMULI. PUPILS DEVELOPED SKILLS FOR INTERPRETING BOTH STIMULUS TYPES. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR FURTHER RESEARCH TO EXPAND THE KNOWLEDGE OF ILLUSTRATIONS USED IN THE SCHOOL. (JC)
