Usefulness of Concept Maps in College Chemistry Laboratories: Students' Perceptions and Effects on Achievement.
Markow, Peter G.; Lonning, Robert A.
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, v35 n9 p1015-29 Nov 1998
Concept-map construction was tested as a means of increasing the conceptual learning of first-year, non-major college chemistry students (n=32). No significant differences between the control (essay-writing) and treatment (concept-map-constructing) groups were found on post-lab multiple-choice achievement tests. Interviews with students indicated positive attitudes toward concept mapping. Contains 36 references. (WRM)
