Comprehension and Retention of Television Programs by 20- and 60-Year Olds.
Cavanaugh, John C.
Journal of Gerontology, v38 n2 p190-96 Mar 1983
Examined age differences in older (N=50) and younger (N=50) adults' comprehension and retention of television programs. Both studies explored content and learner variables. Results suggest that comprehension and retention are related to verbal ability, and that individuals with lower verbal ability may encode less information than their higher verbal counterparts.
