The Effects of Utilizing Simultaneous Audio and Printed Media in Science.
Holliday, William G.
Tenth grade biology students were randomly assigned to three groups of 36 students each. Each group was presented with the same learning materials. The material was in a printed format for one group, one group was read the material, and the third read the material while it was read to them. All groups were given a printed retention test, and, when the Verbal Reasoning Test score of the Differential Aptitude Tests was used as a covariate, there were no differences among the scores of the groups. The results are consistent with Broadbent's model of the perceptual system as a single channel system and have implications for designers of audio-visual instructional systems. (AL)
