Adult Age Differences in Comprehension and Memory for Computer-Displayed and Printed Text.
Moore, DeWayne; Zabrucky, Karen
Educational Gerontology, v21 n2 p139-50 Mar 1995
Groups of 40 younger and 40 older adults read 4 expository passages either on a computer display or as printed text. Online presentation resulted in better recall and comprehension evaluation for both age groups, an effect not caused by longer time spent reading online texts. Younger subjects spent less time reading and recalled more information. (SK)
