Issing, Ludwig J.
European Journal of Psychology of Education, v5 n4 p489-99 Dec 1990
Reports results of two studies using physics materials to determine the parameters of pictorial analogies in combination with expository text. Shows that pictorial analogies can improve learning significantly if they are designed properly and used together with the text. Concludes that the analogies should have high structural similarity between the base and the target domain. (DK)
