Vidal-Abarca, Eduardo; Martinez, Gabriel; Gilabert, Ramiro
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n1 p107-16 Mar 2000
Compares two approaches for improving instructional text with a sample of eighth grade students (N=64). The first approach emphasized the reduction of the reader's comprehension; the other was oriented toward triggering causal inferences in the reader. Only the second procedure produced benefits on inferential learning, though both procedures had a limited effect on recall. (Author/MKA)
