Decision Making Graphic Organizers

Graphic organizers can be very useful in making a decision because they force the student to think about what the problem is, what the possible alternatives are, and what the consequences (positive and negative) of each alternative could be. Then the decision can be more easily analyzed.

The graphic organizer guides the student through a four-stage decision-making process. The stages in the process are:

  1. State the decision that needs to be made.
  2. List possible alternatives.
  3. List the pros and cons (the consequences) associated with each of the alternatives.
  4. Compare the consequences each of the alternatives in order to make the decision (and/or evaluate the alternatives pairwise).
For example, this type of graphic organizer can be used to choose which elective courses would best suit a student.

PMI (Plus, Minus, Implications) charts can be used for decision making where there are only two alternatives (like a yes/no question).
