Diebold, Thomas J.; Waldron, Manjula B.
American Annals of the Deaf, v133 n1 p30-35 Mar 1988
Sixty hearing-impaired students, aged 12-22, studied one of four instructional formats describing basic science concepts. Comprehension gains were measured using a pretest-posttest procedure. Formats which featured highly pictorial content and simplified English produced significantly higher mean gain scores than formats with less pictorial content and more complex English patterns.
