Comparative Effects of Adjunct Postquestions and Instructions on Learning from Text.
Ellis, John A.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, v74 n6 p860-67 Dec 1982
Two experiments investigated whether instructions to students about how and what to learn can facilitate learning as effectively as adjunct postquestions. Adjunct-question, instruction, and adjunct-question plus instruction groups performed significantly better than the control group in recall of verbatim factual information and in responding to questions paraphrasing factual information from the text.
