A Picture Is Not Always Worth a Thousand Words: Pictures as Distractors in Reading
Willows, Dale M.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 70, 2, 255-62, Apr 78
Children read sets of words under three conditions: with no pictures, with related pictures, and with unrelated pictures. Results indicated that words were read more slowly whenever pictures were present; that unrelated pictures produced more interference than related pictures; and that both effects were inversely related to reading ability.
