n this paper, an overview of the concept mapping learning environment COMPASS is given. The most important features of COMPASS are the support of students in working out various concept mapping activities, the analysis of students’ concept maps, the qualitative and quantitative estimation of their knowledge, the provision of different forms of feedback and feedback components, the adaptive functionality of the feedback process and the CAT tool, which enables teachers to author mapping activities and monitor students’ progress. The results revealed from an experimental study conducted in a classroom setting are positive and encouraging, regarding the exploitation of COMPASS as an alternative teaching and learning tool.
