AbstractThe subjects in this research were Year Seven (12 year old) students (n= 42) from twoprimary schools in Western Australia. Our prediction was that temporal speech cueingwould better enable school-age students to focus their attention than those in the temporaltext cueing group. Small sample sizes are not uncommon in experimental multimediaresearch (Austin, 1994; Bridgman, 1990; Carroll & Mack, 1987; Shell, 1990). Year sevenstudents were chosen for the study because this is the final year of primary school andthus the results from the study were more likely to be relevant for both primary andsecondary students. In addition, primary school students were more suitable because theprimary school curriculum is more thematic and flexible readily allowing the addition ofcontent and a variety of teaching situations.
