Fact Retrieval by Students with and without Learning Handicaps Using Print and Electronic Encyclopedias.
Edyburn, Dave L.
Journal of Special Education Technology, v11 n2 p75-90 Fall 1991
Thirteen learning-handicapped junior high students and 15 nonhandicapped peers conducted fact retrieval tasks. Highest retrieval success was attained with a menu-driven electronic encyclopedia, followed by print encyclopedia and command-driven electronic encyclopedia. Higher success levels were found when tasks were assigned rather than self-selected and simple rather than complex. (Author/JDD)
