Boudreau, Rhonda L.; Wood, Eileen; Willoughby, Teena; Specht, Jacqueline
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v45 n2 p170-83 Sum 1999
One hundred Canadian undergraduates read a lengthy expository text, used one of five study strategies for 50 minutes, and completed recall and multiple-choice tests. Students using self-study, repetition, or unsupported elaborative interrogation had difficulty recognizing the passage's main ideas. Elaborative interrogation's effectiveness was maximized when supported by preunderlined ideas and specific "why" questions. Contains 19 references. (Author/SV)
