The Effects of Visual and Verbal/Visual Organizers on the Learning of Unfamiliar Information with Daytime Students in Two Rural Community Colleges in Southwestern Virginia.
Prescott, Peggy-Lynn
The effects of visual, and verbal/visual, preorganizers and postorganizers on the learning of unfamiliar information were evaluated in an experimental study involving 153 community college students. Pre- and postorganizers were used in connection with a 20-minute lesson on the theory of communication. A 25-item, multiple-choice criterion test was used to assess the effects of the treatments. Comparison of experimental and control groups indicated significant improvement in achievement in the presence of verbal, or verbal/visual, pre- or postorganizers. There were no significant effects due to sequence (pre versus post) or mode of presentation (verbal versus verbal/visual). (Author/AA)
