The Use and Value of Illustrations as Contextual Information for Readers at Different Progress and Developmental Levels.
Donald, D. R.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v53 (pt2) p175-85 Jun 1983
Describes research into the adaptive function of illustrations in reading development of primary students, indicating that, for good readers, illustrations play a significant role in the early stages. This declines sharply with reading development. For poor readers, there is a progressive dependence on illustrations which appears unlikely to be adaptive. (EAO)
