An instructional principle is a general hypothesis about the relative effectiveness of different kinds of instruction. It often has the form "A is more effective than not-A" or "A is more effective than B." We often use "principle" and "hypothesis" interchangably, although we also tend to reserve "principle" for more general hypothesis, hypotheses supported by copious evidence, or hypothesis that are commonly believed.
