Abstract

This paper describes a study conducted with the aim of validating DynMap, a system based on Concept Maps, as a mechanism to visualize the evolution of the students through the learning process of a particular subject. DynMap has been developed with the aim of providing the educational community with a tool that facilitates the inspection of the student data. It offers the user a graphical representation of the student model and enables learners and teachers to understand the model better.
