The author relates how she improve the ability of her students in problem solving through the use of concept map assessment. A concept map is a diagram that represents a set of concept meanings linked with propositions and can be used to view how students are organizing information and how they are relating new information to what they already know. The author also used several methods for assessing concept maps.
