Retention of Pictorial and Verbal Content of A Text with Illustrations
Peeck, J.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 66, 6, 880-88, Dec 74
Questioning why illustrated text is commonly used for children in the absence of significant proof of its usefulness, the present author undertook a study to measure fourth graders' retention of three variations of a story book text. Results indicate illustrations have several effects on retention. (BJG)
