Effects of Text Organization, Visuals, and Activity on Comprehension of Technical Discourse.
Scarborough, Jule Dee
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v22 n1 p14-26 Fall 1984
To determine effect upon comprehension of technical information of text presentation, visual presentation, and execution of an activity, 140 junior high students were tested for comprehension of a passage on slip casting. Data from 14 experimental groups were analyzed by Verbatim Cloze, Idea Cloze, and Recall. Independent application of presentation techniques increased comprehension more than a combination of approaches. (SK)
