Abstract

In this study a range of data (concept maps and assessment tasks involving the development of multimedia-rich learning environments) were used to determine if the ability of students to develop visual representations in the form of a concept map, was related to their subsequent final grades achieved in the module. The complexity and depth of student concept maps were scored using the SOLO taxonomy. Analysis of the date showed a positive correlation between the scores achieved for concept map development by students and their final grade for the module. The paper discusses the relationships found between the two sources of data and concludes with some suggestions for future studies in this area.
