Abstract

To determine if different levels of graphic presentation affected understanding, 131 middle school science students with high and low spatial ability were shown programs teaching concepts of molecular diffusion with no graphics, static graphics, or animated graphics. Students with low spatial ability benefited from animated presentations. Spatial ability was a significant factor in short-term comprehension and presentation was significant in long-term comprehension. (PEN)
