Message Cues and Narrative Comprehension: A Developmental Study.
Badzinski, Diane M.
Communication Quarterly, v40 n3 p228-38 Sum 1992
Advances two processes describing the relationship between message behaviors and narrative comprehension that differ in the likelihood that specific interpretations will be drawn given the presence of message cues. Finds that, in general, cues biased young children toward drawing a particular representation but that fifth graders delayed choosing a representation when task requirements did not mandate a selection.
