Effects of Contextual Organization on Prose Retention
Gardner, Edward T.; Schumacher, Gary M.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 2, 146-51, Apr 77
College subjects were given either no prepassage, a thematic prepassage, or a topic sentence prepassage followed by an ambiguous passage in either superordinate or coordinate context. The thematic prepassage facilitated performance on a rigorously scored free-recall measure and a multiple-choice measure. Superordinate contextual organization facilitated performance on two less rigorous dependent variables. (Author/MV)
