A Comparison of the Responses Made to Visual and to Printed Information by Selected College Students.
Ellison, Joseph Lee
The purpose of this study was to determine whether there were any differences between the responses made by selected college students to information presented in a visual context and to the same basic information presented in a verbal context. Selected college students were asked to respond to pictorial information and to the same basic information in printed form. Three variables were tested in the experiment: describing, comparing, and sequencing. The results indicated a statistically significant difference between the means when the same basic information was presented in both picture and printed form. Analysis of the data indicated that the picture information produced more correct responses than did the printed information. Responses to pictures were not only more accurate but also provided for fewer differences in interpretations. (Author/WR)
