Map & Analyze Patterns & Structures Across Time: MAPSAT
Map & Analyze Patterns & Structures Across Time (MAPSAT) is a measurement paradigm for identifying temporal and structural patterns in education. MAPSAT is based on set theory, probability theory, digraph theory, general systems theory, and axiomatic theories of intentional systems. MAPSAT was formerly called APT&C. The name has changed to make it more pronouncable and to reflect what this mapping and analysis approach is.
- What is MAPSAT? MAPSAT consist of Analysis of Patterns in Time (APT) and Analysis of Patterns in Configuration (APC)
- Analysis of Patterns in Time (APT): A Method of Recording and Quantifying Temporal Relations in Education (Frick, 1990). See also Nonmetric Temporal Path Analysis: foundations for APT, 1983.
- Analysis of Patterns in Configuration (APC): ATIS Graph Theory (Thompson, 2008)
- Axiomatic Theories of Intentional Systems (ATIS): Thompson (2006) -- formerly A-GSBT
