This research is designed to explore the manner in which people read and use procedural information directions presented to them in text and illustrations. University undergraduates read directions for the assembly of a model loading cart, assembling the model as they read. The use of illustrations with text was found to produce significantly more accurate performance of the task. Results also suggest that specific types of information are presented more effectively in texts or in illustrations. Author
