Age Differences in Efficiency of Reading Comprehension from Printed versus Computer-Displayed Text.
Poon, Leonard W.; Meyer, Bonnie J. F.
Educational Gerontology, v23 n8 p789-807 Dec 1997
Older (n=57) and younger (n=63) adults read passages in one of three conditions: on printed pages, on a self-paced computer screen, or on computer screens paced by machine. Older adults' comprehension was most efficient with print, younger subjects' with computers. When asked if they liked reading computer screens, 67% of younger and 46% of older subjects said yes. (SK)
