Investigates the impact of the interspersal procedure on students' reading tasks. Students read out loud two passages, with one containing additional interspersed brief, easy paragraphs. Students selected the passage that would require the least effort and the least time to read. Results suggest that the interspersal procedure may improve assignment perception only when the procedure increases discrete task-completion rates. (Contains 59 references and 1 table.) (GCP)
