Abstract

Three experiments were conducted to determine how the careful reading of advance organizers affected the answers that students constructed for study questions. In the first experiment, those middle-school students who read and paraphrased an advance organizer prior to study correctly answered significantly more lower order study questions than did students not encountering the organizer. In Experiments 2 and 3, middle-school and college students, respectively, were used. In both experiments, students who read and paraphrased the advance organizer constructed significantly better answers for higher order study questions than did those students who had no access to the organizers.
