The validity of expert and high performer knowledge standards was examined by collecting and analyzing data from seven studies in which both knowledge structure and performance data were collected. The studies represented domains ranging from undergraduate studies to avionics troubleshooting. Participants were assigned in each study knowledge scores based on comparisons to expert and high performer standards. It is evident that an expert-consensus structure is not the appropriate knowledge standard for all domains. Practitioners using knowledge structure measures should consider incorporating both expert and high performer standards into their analysis in order to ensure optimal knowledge assessment.
