Does Passive Learning Account for Disabled Readers' Comprehension Deficits in Ordinary Reading Situations?
Jenkins, Joseph R.; And Others
Learning Disability Quarterly, v9 n1 p69-76 Win 1986
Thirty-two learning disabled and 32 average elementary students, matched by grade, read under three conditions: classroom group, individual, and individual restatement condition, requiring subjects to summarize contents during passage reading. Overall results of comprehension tests failed to confirm predicted differential effects of conditions on attentional control. Restatements resulted in superior performance for both groups.
