The Effect of Illustrations on Second Graders' Reading Comprehension.
A study investigated whether text illustrations improve the reading comprehension of second graders. Subjects, 14 second-grade students, read five stories from a basal reader. The control group read each story with accompanying illustrations, while the experimental group was exposed to only the written version of the same stories. Questions based on the written version were administered to measure students' comprehension. Results showed that there was no significant difference between the groups. (Three tables of data are included, and 23 references are attached.) (SR)
