Spontaneous Concept Maps Aiding the Understanding of Scientific Concepts.
Slotte, Virpi; Lonka, Kirsti
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n5 p515-31 May 1999
Evaluates concept maps (n=36) spontaneously constructed by applicants in a medical school entrance examination for content of relevant terms and the number of interrelationships indicated. Finds that merely including the relevant concepts in a map has little effect on the comprehension of those concepts, but map complexity is strongly related to the understanding of scientific texts. Contains 37 references. (Author/WRM)
