Abstract

The flexibility of concept mapping enables users to construct a wide range of maps for a given domain. This variation raises the question of what constitute “good” concept maps. This paper contributes towards answering this question by presenting the development and evaluation of a tool for automatic classification of concept maps based on a topological taxonomy. In addition to showing successful demonstrations of the tool’s ability to distinguish novice and expert maps, the paper shows the usefulness of the tool for understanding the types of features that occur in human-generated concept maps.
