The Matrix System: A Practical Basis for Stimulus Selection.
Gorman, Don A.; Wilson, Thomas C.
The selection matrix is an attempt to provide an efficient, effective, and practical basis for selecting the instructional medium possessing more specific learner-situation-task attributes than others. The selection matrix provides three important capabilities by (1) identifying a number of appropriate media and isolating them, (2) reducing the identified number to a single most appropriate medium, and (3) assisting in planning. While there are other procedures for systematically selecting instructional materials, few offer the advantages associated with the selection matrix system; especially the fact that no equipment is required, although the process is compatible with computerized information storage and retrieval systems.
