Sequencing Learning Events in Performance-Based Instructional Systems.
Passmore, David L.
The need for an empirically defensible means of sequencing instruction appears to have been the primary motivator for research into learning hierarchies. Four methods for generating candidates for learning hierarchies were reviewed: introspection, formal analysis, observation, and statistical "fishing." Experimental transfer of training studies and statistical studies have been used to evaluate posited hierarchies, and significant modifications of these standard evaluative methods have been suggested to improve the internal validity of research into learning hierarchies.
