The purpose of this study was to determine whether a ­synchronized audible multiple-image (A.M.I.) program about weather forecasting was significantly more effective than a synchronized audible single-image program in dealing with immediate and long term retention of factual and conceptual information for varying ability levels of fourth graders. The subjects (N = 257) were selected fourth-grade students in the Ithaca, Lansing, and Newfield School Districts who were randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups: (1) the audible multiple-image group; or, (2) the audible single-image group.
