Wilhite, Stephen C.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v75 n2 p234-44 Apr 1983

Results indicated that questions which direct the subjects' attention to material at the top of the organizational structure facilitate the effective encoding of the central organizational idea within the passage segment.
