A Comparison of Three Combinations of Text and Graphics for Concept Learning. Technical Report 76-16.
King, William A.
Using PLATO, a computer-assisted instruction system, a test was conducted to see if students respond most favorably to an instructional package that included no graphic display, still graphic display, or animated graphic display. Forty-five students at the Naval Training Center, San Diego, were the subjects. With the learning of the sine-ratio concept as the instructional objective, three different instructional packages were written, employed, and posttested. Scores showed that including graphic displays does not improve conceptual comprehension. (EMH)
