Abstract:

Findings suggest no difference between live and taped lecture, a significant advantage of read material over heard material, a significant advantage of self-paced reading over class-paced reading, and a significant advantage of the plain book format over the scrambled book format. Results also suggest that recognition from tests based on neo-rote contents might be used in lieu of recall form tests in that there is a generally stable relationship between the two test forms. The research was undertaken to find a modified scrambled book treatment which would show up as well as a plain book treatment. The search was unsuccessful. Author
