The Relevance of Hierarchies to Learning Biology from Hypertext.
Shapiro, Amy M.
Journal of the Learning Sciences, v8 n2 p215-43 1999
Explores the relevance of hierarchies to information processing. Suggests that participants in all conditions create hierarchical representations as they work, and those in nonlinear conditions use this structure to guide their exploration of the material. An important function of hierarchies may be to define relationships between concepts. (Author/CCM)
