Concept-Based Student Assessment

Piyush Maheshwari and Nandan Parameswaran
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.

Index Terms—Concept map, assessment, education.
