Intersensory Transfer, Perceptual Shifting, Modal Preference, and Reading. Reading Information Series: Where Do We Go?
Jones, John Paul
Modality research is of major importance to the field of reading; it has directed attention to three factors: intersensory transfer, intersensory perceptual shifting, and modal preference. This paper provides a critical review of the most pertinent research relating each of these factors to reading achievement. No attempt is made to review studies which focus on auditory perception or visual perception alone. Rather the review is confined to those studies which explore various modal relationships, largely auditory versus visual. The review of literature is followed by a synthesis of basic conclusions to be drawn from the research, including its major weaknesses. The final section of the paper is devoted to recommendations for further research in the three areas. A citation bibliography is appended. (Author)
