Generating concept map exercises from textbooks


In this paper we present a methodology for creating concept map exercises for students. Concept mapping is a common pedagogical exercise in which students generate a graphical model of some domain. Our method automatically extracts knowledge representations from a textbook and uses them to generate concept maps. The purpose of the study is to generate and evaluate these concept maps according to their accuracy, completeness, and pedagogy.
