The proposed tools of cognitive analysis may be in keeping with modern wisdom of human cognitive structure and should be additional used as technique of optimizing cognitive load in learner-tailored computer-based studying environments.

One of the reasons for novices' difficulties in problem solving is that they activate only lower-level schemas that incorporate only surface aspects of the problem, whereas experts activate higher-level schemas that contain information critical to the problem solution (Chi & Glaser, 1985).

1989). A learner may not understand an instruction if she or he lacks an appropriate schema or cues to retrieve it, or if the learner activates a different schema from that intended by the 32 Slava Kalyuga instruction (Rumelhart, 1980).
