Bаsed оn this stаtement, wаs the sample a prоbability sample? Cоllege students in three sections of a remedial reading and study skills course participated in the study. These students had been placed in this basic skills course on the basis of scores below 500 on the verbal section of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and scores on the Nelson Denny Reading Test (Form E) of either below 45 on the comprehension subtest or below 44 on the vocabulary subtest. Analyses of these test data revealed no significant differences among the three classes (all Fs < 1), suggesting that the three classes did not differ in preexperimental verbal abilities. Mean age of participants was 19.09 years. Classes were randomly assigned to one of three conditions: self- questioning, summarizing, and notetaking-review (an untrained control group). Seven students were dropped from the three groups due to absence during practice or testing sessions, resulting in the following group sizes: self-questioning-19, summarizing- 19, and notetaking-review.
