The purpose of this study was to conduct an integrative literature review of all papers and posters presented at the 2004 and 2006 Concept Mapping Conferences. In this review, 322 papers and posters, written in both English and Spanish, were reviewed. Six researchers reviewed the papers and created a matrix outlining each research study, the methods, the findings, and the implications. This matrix was then used to conduct a meta-analysis and identify six overall themes of research presented at the 2004 and 2006. These themes were identified as 1. teaching and learning, 2. assessment and scoring, 3. knowledge development, 4. software development, 5. professional development, and 6. research methods. In addition, researchers propose directions for future research in concept mapping.
