Assessing Hypermedia Navigation through Pathfinder: Prospects and Limitations

Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 15, Number 3, ISSN 0735-6331


Pathfinder is a graphic theoretic technique used to analyze proximity data. This study evaluates its validity: (1) for representing and comparing individuals' navigation through a computer-based hypermedia environment; and (2) for generating an empirically-derived path that represents a set of individual navigational paths during computer-assisted instruction.
