This experiment was designed to evaluate the validity of S s perceptions of the instructional effectiveness of four different types of black and white and colored illustrations. Each S received a pretest, participated in his respective instructional presentation, received four individual criterial tests, and completed a Visual Illustration Questionnaire. Results indicate that (a) the type of visuals that Ss themselves perceive as being most effective are not always the ones found to be most effective in facilitating their achievement, and (b) all types of visuals are not equally effective in improving Ss achievement of different learning objectives.
