In the early part of this century, functionalism served as perhaps the most important alternative to the theoretical focus of structuralisl~. Carr(1925) outlined the seven principles of functionalism, one of which was the importance of practical applications as an integral part of theory development and testing. Likewise, the related philosophical approach of pragmatism (James, 1907), with its focus onthe utility of knowledge asa validity criterion for theories also provides a strong alternative to structuralism.

Ell-structured concepts in the student networks were defined as those sharing greater degrees of similarity (in terms of direct links to the same set of concepts) with those links found in instructor networks. Il1”structured concepts weredefined as those sharing less student-to-illstructor link similarity. Gonzalvo et al. found positive correlations between the goodness of students’ definitions of concepts and thestructural similarity of their concepts to the concepts in the instructor networks, as well as an increase in the number of well-structured concepts at the end as compared to the beginning of the course.
