Abstract

Two experiments were conducted. The first experiment compared cyclic and hierarchical concept maps, and measured the impact of concept quantification on the construction of both types of maps. The second experiment examined the preference for the two concept map structures. The results showed that structure does have a significant effect on the extent to which propositions imply a dynamic relationship. However, the quantification of the starting concept did not increase the number of dynamic propositions in any of the structures. The second experiment indicated a preference for a cyclic concept map, primarily for structural reasons. The studies, the theoretical background, and the implications of the findings are discussed.
