The Role of Semantic Congruency in the Design of Graphic Organizers.
Kealy, William A.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v1 n3 p205-14 Fall 2000
Undergraduates read a passage describing social groupings of fish, their color, depth, size and diet. Subjects concurrently viewed a graphic organizer (GO) presenting this information in a matrix-like format. Half the GOs were semantically congruent with the text, organized according to social grouping; the others were spatially organized. Semantic congruity influenced GO efficacy only for delayed recall of material related to the main topic of the text. (Contains 17 references.) (AEF)
