Concept Mapping Software


"Creating visual TOOLS to SEE student-learning."

AUTOMATED CONCEPT MAPPING FOR EDUCATION supported by the National Science Foundation.

The C-TOOLS project presents a web-based, concept mapping Java applet with automatic scoring. The Concept Connector tool is being designed to enable students in large introductory science classes at the university level to visualize their thinking online and receive immediate formative feedback. The Concept Connector's flexible scoring system, being based on tested scoring schemes as well as instructor input, has enabled automatic and immediate online scoring of concept map homework. C-TOOLS also contains a courseware management system streamlined for the creation, editing and management of concept map assignments in a classroom setting.

Based on the work of Dr. Diane Ebert-May and Dr. Doug Luckie.
