The Compensatory Effect of Graphic Organizers on Descriptive Text.
Alvermann, Donna E.
Journal of Educational Research, v75 n1 p44-48 Sep-Oct 1981
A study was done to investigate the use of graphic organizers to compensate for text that was poorly organized. Results support assimilation encoding theory and suggest that organizers aid recall when readers must reorganize information but are of little value when reorganization is unnecessary. (Author/JN)
