Abstract

Two experiments on reading of procedural texts are described with the purpose to show the role of organisational/spatial layout (Title, paragraph marks...) on encoding strategies during reading. The first experiment used reading times and the second was an eye tracking study. Globally, the results show that the presence of a organisational layout on procedural texts (games rules) induced a hierarchic encoding of text information, it would facilitate the global coherence process needed for information integration. This hierarchic encoding strategy is elaborated at the beginning of reading when the text structure is available (text presented with a layout), reading time are longer on the first sentence. When the structure of the text is not available (justified text), the encoding strategy was rather temporal, text coherence would be established progressively during reading. The results are interpreted according to the Structure Building Framework Model (Gernsbacher, 1988)
