Some interesting field observations
students make connections in concept maps, that instructors never
thought about. This feedback is a source of improvement for instructors.
unstructured nature of maps makes catching errors difficult.
potential relation seen by the instructor is not necessarily an
appropriate student relation.
with most assessment measures, once an objective mechanism of assigning
points is revealed to the students, it appears likely that subsequent
assessments would reduce the reliability of the measure.
map is not the end product of learning,but
an expression about meaning and importance.
