Audio/Visual Aids: A Study of the Effect of Audio/Visual Aids on the Comprehension Recall of Students.
A study investigated whether the use of audio/visual aids had an effect upon comprehension recall. Thirty fourth-grade students from an urban public school were randomly divided into two equal samples of 15. One group was given a story to read (print only), while the other group viewed a filmstrip of the same story, thereby utilizing audio/visual aids. Immediately following, a comprehension recall test consisting of 10 questions was administered; only short-term recall was tested. Results indicated that there was no significant effect on comprehension of printed material as a result of using audio/visual aids. (One table of data is included, and 25 references are attached. An appendix contains the printed story and the comprehension recall test.) (Author/SR)
