dc.description.abstract <p>This study investigated the effects of music and imagery on learning and attitudes in an industry training class. One hundred forty-six clerical workers were divided into eight groups and given classroom training on tax reporting. Two groups each were exposed to one of four conditions: (1) music only, (2) imagery only, (3) both music and imagery, or (4) control. Subjects were given a pretest, posttest, transfer task, and an evaluation form. While test scores improved significantly from pretest to posttest, there were no significant differences between any of the conditions on the posttest, transfer task, and two of the evaluation items. However, the imagery condition showed significantly higher scores on the evaluation item "evaluation of course content". Reasons for these findings are discussed.</p>
