Computational Efficiency through Visual Argument: Do Graphic Organizers Communicate Relations in Text Too Effectively?
Robinson, Daniel H.; Schraw, Gregory
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v19 n4 p399-415 Oct 1994
Three experiments involving 138 college students investigated why one type of graphic organizer (a matrix) may communicate interconcept relations better than an outline or text. Results suggest that a matrix is more computationally efficient than either outline or text, allowing the easier computation of relationships. (SLD)
