Influence of Questions on the Allocation of Attention during Reading.
Reynolds, Ralph E.; Anderson, Richard C.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v74 n5 p623-32 Oct 1982

Results are predicted by a theory that readers selectively allocate a greater volume of attention to question-relevant information, and that a process supported by the additional attention causes more of the information to be learned.
