The Effectiveness of Testbook, Individualized, and Pictorial Instructional Formats for Hearing Impaired College Students.
Reynolds, Horace N.; Rosen, Richard F.
Evaluated were three printed instructional formats (narrative textbook, individualized materials, and pictorial display) used with 146 hearing impaired college students in two experiments. Ss in both experiments were divided into three groups, each group receiving one of the three formats. Ss were given a pretest of information comprehension and retention followed by a session of reading and studying and instructional packages. A posttest was administered on the following day to Ss in the first experiment and after a delay of 13 days to Ss in the second experiment. The posttest scores were significantly higher for the pictorial format group than for the textbook group, with the individualized format scores falling at an intermediate level in both experiments.
