Abstract—In this paper, we suggest that a student’s answer
must be assessed not only for the correctness of the answer but
also for the correctness of her understanding of the underlying
concepts. Assessing answers for conceptual correctness
produces marking that is fairer than assessing for correctness of
answer. We propose a concept-based methodology for assessing
student answers using concept maps.
