Abstract: This research compared students' listening comprehension and retention of information in two conditions using a picture. The subjects were 95 university students, divided into two conditions. In the pre-picture condition, students listened to the passage after seeing a picture related to it. In the post-picture condition, students listened to the same passage before seeing the same picture. Twenty-two multiple-choice questions were developed to assess different types of incidental learning. Each question was varied along two dimensions. In the question focus dimension, half the questions were related to illustrated information, while the other half related to unillustrated information. In the question type dimension, 12 questions were factual and 10 were inferential. The questions were administered as a retention test as well as a post-test. Results indicated that the students in the pre-picture condition significantly improved comprehension of inferential and illustrated information. On the other hand, the students in the post-picture condition showed higher retention of the inferential and illustrated information.
