Abstract

17 volunteers were administered an online drawing environment where they generated images as a response to musical intervals, then tested on their recall of these musical intervals while using their images as cues. A paired t-test comparing pre to post treatment showed a significant effect in the online treatment (t ( 16 ) = 2.759, p = .014 ). A series of multiple regressions also yielded a significant model ( F ( 4, 12 ) = 4.284, p = .022) with r2 = .588. The findings are explained with respect to dual coding theory (Clark & Paivio, 1991; Paivio, 1971, 1990) and the generative theory of reading comprehension (Wittrock, 1990).
