    Study #1: analysis of the illustrations found within the curricular materials most frequently used within K-12 Deaf Education
    Question #1#1: What are the curricular materials that are most commonly used within hte K-12 education of students who are d/hh?
    Students who are d/hh commonly perform at an academic level that is significantly less than their learning potential. Problems associated with hearing loss are cited as the root cause of this discrepancy between potential and performance. While the presence of a hearing loss, and the related problems, unquestionable impacts academic performance, additional factors must also be considered.
    During the past twenty years there has been a tremendous increase in educators use of computer based, internet linked technologies. This increase has been driven both by technological developments and the belief that the instructional use use of computers, LCD projectors, document cameras, Web sites, etc. serve to enhance student learning by making instructional material more visual and engaging. Unfortunately, the link between technology use and student performance has been difficulty to establish. Research by Richard Mayer and others has established that simply using technology in a way that appears to be innovative and engaging is insufficient to enhance the quality, or how well, of student learning. Mayer's research has concentrated upon the systematic identification and investigation of what he refers to as the "principles of multimedia learning." These principles establish how multimedia presentations, i.e., both print and computer based, should be designed to support instruction that it matches how individuals learn. When such a "match" is established, Mayer's research has documented that the quality of student learning is significantly enhanced. As a result, student learning can be enhanced through not simply the use of technologies, but the effective design of multimedia instruction. Unfortunately, while the use of these principles have been extensively examined in relation to students who are hearing, the principles have not been tested in relation to students who are d/hh. As a result, it is not known if the use of Mayer's principles of multimedia learning could serve to decrease the difference between potential and performance demonstrated by many of students who are d/hh.
