Plans and Written Directions for Complex Tasks.
Dixon, Peter
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v21 n1 p70-84 Feb 1982
Describes three experiments designed to investigate the effect of sentence organization on the comprehension of procedural directions. Ease of comprehension was determined by measuring reading time for two different sentence patterns, while subjects followed instructions to operate an unfamiliar device. Experimental results showed that action-first sentences were easier to understand. (Author/MES)
