American Annals of the Deaf, v133 n4 p280-84 Oct 1988
This study investigated the effects of manipulating design features of a computer-mediated text system, using 45 hearing-impaired subjects in grades four-six. A system design using motivational activities facilitated vocabulary knowledge and writing performance. Also analyzed were use of extrinsic motivational activities versus intrinsic, and different versions of an electronic dictionary. (Author/JDD)
