A Task-Content Analysis of an Introductory Entomology Curriculum.
Brandenburg, R.
Described is an analysis of the content, tasks, and strategies needed by students to enable them to identify insects to order by sight and to family by use of a standard dichotomous taxonomic key. Tasks and strategies are broken down and arranged progressively in the approximate order in which students should progress. Included are listings of insect identification variables, a network of identification procedures for each variable, a flow-chart utilizing five variables for ordering insects into 14 "order sets," and characteristic charts of variables for 22 orders of insects.
