Is Concept Mapping An Effective Tool For Evaluation Of Student Learning In Science?, Linda Jean Foster Jan 2001

Is Concept Mapping An Effective Tool For Evaluation Of Student Learning In Science?, Linda Jean Foster

Theses Digitization Project

Concept mapping is a metacognitive learning strategy which often improves a learner's ability to construct new knowledge. This action research project was intended to determine the level of effectiveness of concept mapping as a student learning intervention. Students in two high school science classes constructed concept maps before and after instruction during a unit of study about volcanoes. The maps were analyzed for increases in complexity and indications of learning. The concept maps were then compared for differences by groups based on volcano unit test scores. Based on the analysis of the matched pairs of concept maps, those maps ...
