A Summary of Studies Related to the Effect of Question Placement on Reading Comprehension.
Wiesendanger, Katherine D.; And Others
Of 21 studies on the effect that question placement had on reading comprehension, ten favored and eleven opposed the use of prequestions. A review of these studies suggests that the issue is not whether prequestions or postquestions produce greater gains in reading comprehension. What remains to be examined is the change in reading comprehension that occurs with the interaction between question placement and such variables as sex, intelligence, and socioeconomic background.
