Abstract:

The research reported was conducted to determine if graduate students comprehend microfilmed material significantly quicker than hard copy material of a similar level of difficulty. The hypothesis tested was that graduate students comprehend microfilmed material significantly quicker than hard copy material of a similar level of difficulty because they tend to read microfilm quicker. The research followed a descriptive design with a statistical inference obtained from an analysis of data collected from a systematic sampling of a defined population. An independent variable was manipulated to insure material of similar difficulty as measured by the Dale-Chall Readability Formula. Modified author abstract
