ZHANG Li,FU Xiao-lan,XUAN Yu-ming (Institute of Psychology,Chinese Academy of Sciences,Beijing 100101,China)  
The effects of the location of the titles,the complexity of the presented data,and the difficulty of the questions on performance with tables and graphs were studied.Forty-nine subjects were randomly assigned to table group or line graph group.The results showed:(1)Tables led to faster responses and higher accuracy in information extraction task.But as to recalling task,line graph group achieved higher accuracy;(2)The title on the top led to faster responses and higher accuracy for both groups in information extraction task,and also led to higher accuracy of recalling for both groups;(3)Low complexity of data led to higher accuracy than high complexity of data in both tasks;(4)Easy questions were responded faster and better than difficult questions in information extraction tasks.Answers for easy questions were recalled faster but with lower accuracy.
