The Effects of Pre-Existing Inappropriate Highlighting on Reading Comprehension.
Silvers, Vicki L.; Kreiner, David S.
Reading Research and Instruction, v36 n3 p217-23 Spr 1997
Addresses concerns that, if a student uses a second-hand textbook already highlighted throughout the text, it may interfere with reading comprehension. Investigates highlighting: in the first experiment preexisting inappropriate highlighting interfered with performance on a reading test; in the second experiment, advance warning on the negative effects of preexisting highlighting did not eliminate the effect.
