Abstract

Background: Concept maps developed as teaching tools by Novak et al. depending on Ausubel's cognitive teaming theory display the relationships and hierarchy between the concepts. Concept maps, having been used mostly as teaching tools, display the relationships between the concepts concretely and therefore are qualified to be utilized as an alternative evaluation tool in terms of research on students' cognitive structures.
