Forty postsecondary students who were deaf were required to recall lists of eight words. Students with higher levels of English language proficiency recalled significantly more than those with lower levels. Semantic pairing aided the low-level group more than the high-level group, whereas syntactic organization aided the high-level group more. (Author/JDD)
