The Effects of Blue Ink Print on Students' Memory Retention of Math Terms and Definitions.
Din, Feng S.; Barnes, Kahlon
This study investigated whether students' memory retention rate improved when they were provided with blue ink printed material. A pretest, treatment, posttest with control group design was used. The participants were 93 10th and 11th grade students in algebra and geometry courses, and there were 2 classes in each course. The treatment lasted for 8 weeks. Analyses of the data from the pretests and posttests with the Dependent t Test and the ANCOVA test indicated that no significant differences were found from the within-class comparisons for each of the 4 classes, neither were differences found from the between-class comparisons.
