The Use of the Associative Clustering Technique in the Study of Reading Disability: Effects of Presentation Mode.
Evans, Ross A.
The study investigated the effects of reading level and stimulus presentation mode on the associative clustering and recall performance of mentally retarded adolescents. The subjects were administered a randomized list of twenty words from four conceptual categories. For each of four trials, these words were presented via the auditory, visual or combined auditory-visual modes. The subjects in each condition were divided at the median on the basis of reading grade levels. The major findings of the study were that bimodal presentation had a significant facilitating effect on recall but not on clustering. Reading level was not significantly related to either recall or clustering. (Author)
