Underlining: The Graphical Aid to College Reading.
Adams, Effie Kaye
Underlining as a study aid for college students has only recently been considered important in the hierarchy of study skills. A review of statements and studies concerning underlining leads off this study of the extent to which underlining was employed by college students in two education courses at Northern Illinois University and the relationship, if any, between the amount of underlining and the grade point averages of these students. All manner of marking such as boxes and parentheses were considered to be underlining. Results showed little correlation between underlining and grades but provided some useful implications such as the need for more and varied research in the area and the need for systematic instruction in the technique of underlining to help students get more out of their textbooks. References and a student questionnaire regarding underlining practices are included. (NH)
