Recall of Different Segments of an Interpreted Lecture by Deaf Students.
Stinson, Michael; And Others
Two experiments involving 36 deaf college students investigated the amounts of information remembered by students from the different quarters of a lecture and the effect of printed vs. interpreted presentation of lecture material. In the first experiment, 20 deaf college students received an interpreted, videotaped presentation of one lecture and a printed presentation of a second lecture. In Experiment 2, sixteen deaf students received one interpreted presentation and, then, a second interpreted presentation on a different topic. In both experiments, students wrote down the information they remembered immediately after each presentation. Recall protocols were scored for the distribution of ideas recalled from each quarter of the lecture. The principal findings were that students recalled: more information from the first two quarters than from the second two; more information from a printed than an interpreted presentaton; and more information from a second interpreted presentation than from a previous interpreted one. Implications are drawn for providing educational support to mainstreamed deaf students. (Author/SB)
