THE USE OF CONCEPTUAL MAPS IN ASSESSING KNOWLEDGE ACQUIRED IN BIOLOGIC DISCIPLINES PUBLISHEDNarcisa Georgeta CRISTA1, Iasmina Cecilia SAVESCU1 firstname.lastname@example.org
The paper at hand presents the research results regarding the use of conceptual maps in the study of biology. We discuss methodological aspects when applying the conceptual map method in teaching-learning-assessing the biology discipline, existing in specialty literature. We also analyze the results of student assessment at specialty disciplines with the help of conceptual maps, as well as their opinion on how to use the method in biology studies. The results of student knowledge assessment at specialty disciplines demonstrate the fact that the use of conceptual maps in student assessment contributes to knowledge consolidation, insuring a better understanding of the field’s concepts.
