A Summary of the Final Report on the Structural Strategy Diagnostic Profile Project.
Reigeluth, Charles M.; And Others
This project summary explains the development of the elaboration model of instruction, an alternative approach to standard instructional sequencing. There were two phases to the project--the theory construction phase, which identifies the instructional variables, postulates cause-effect relationships, and proposes optimal configurations of instructional conditions and methods through the construction of a model (or theory); and the application phase, which includes the application of the instructional model to the design of a course in a subject-matter area and the development of procedures for implementing this model in the design of new instruction. Four major products of the project are described: (1) an instructional model for sequencing, synthesizing, and summarizing related parts of a subject matter; (2) taxonomy of the variables that are included in the model; (3) a set of procedures for designing instruction, based on the instructional model; and (4) a "blueprint" illustrating the application of those procedures for the redesign of the Navy's Basic Electricity and Electronics course.
