Prereading Prediction and Survey Activities and Their Effect on Reading Comprehension.
Angelino, Mary
This study examined whether post-reading comprehension would be affected by the inclusion of pictorial material with a story and a prereading prediction questionnaire. Subjects, 75 heterogeneously grouped fourth grade students randomly assigned to one of three groups, either (1) read a basal reader passage with pictorial material; or (2) read the same passage with the pictorial material deleted; or (3) answered an 11-item prereading prediction questionnaire prior to reading the basal reading passage which included the pictorial material. All subjects then completed a 10-item posttest. Results indicated that there was no statistically significant difference between the posttest results of the subjects in the three groups. (Three tables of data are included; 30 references, survey instruments, reading passages, and an appendix of score data are attached.) (RS)
