Abstract : Research was conducted to gain more information about how visual aids are processed, given the effect of prior knowledge of PERT on matching written paragraphs to PERT networks. The dependent variables of proportion correct, latency, and branching were studied with prior knowledge, no prior knowledge, and repeated measure as independent variables. Results appear valuable in pointing the way to further research dealing with the meaningfulness of graphics or visuals. (Author)
