  • In this paper, I describe concept maps as assessment tools for measuring one aspect of achievement, the organization of declarative knowledge in a domain. A concept map-based assessment consists of a task that elicits connected understanding, a response format, and a scoring system. Variation in tasks, response formats, and scoring systems produce different mapping techniques that may elicit different knowledge representations, posing construct-interpretation challenges. The paper provides a… CONTINUE READING
