Developed a structural analysis of 3 spatial diagrams (matrices, networks, and hierarchies) that specifies 10 properties on which these diagrammatic representations are hypothesized to differ. Coded verbal protocols of 23 college students about these representations. Results suggest that the organization of students knowledge is consistent with the structural analysis. (SLD)
