Toward a Theory of Sequencing: Study 3-1: Curriculum Hierarchies and the Structure of Intelligence: A Strategy of Organizing Instructional Objectives into Mathematical Systems Employing Basic Piagetian Constructs.
Sawada, Daiyo
The purpose was to develop and implement a strategy for organizing a curriculum into a system having explicit structural mediators of positive transfer from lower- to higher-order objectives. This was cast as a mathematical system, and three axioms were specified so that the system was characterized by composition and reversibility. A set of objectives (on unspecified content) was developed with inverse and transfer objectives. Eleven instructional sequences were presented via the IBM 1500 Instructional Computer System to children (number and level unspecified). Performance on an objective was found to have little relationship to performance on the inverse objective; that is, the pupils did not seem aware of reversibility inherent in the materials, nor of composition objectives.
