The Effects of Text-based Interest on Attention and Recall.
McDaniel, Mark A.; Waddill, Paula J.; Finstad, Kraig; Bourg, Tammy
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n3 p492-502 Sep 2000
Examines attentional demands and recall among undergraduates for stories that differ in rated interest. Results reveal that more interesting stories required fewer attentional resources for comprehension than did less interesting stories. Overall recall did not differ across story interest, but story interest did interact with type of encoding in terms of recall levels. (Contains 40 references, 6 tables, and an appendix.) (Author/GCP)
