RUIZ-MORENO, Lidia; SONZOGNO, Maria Cecília; BATISTA, Sylvia Helena da Silva  y  BATISTA, Nildo Alves. Concept map: testing analytical criteria. Ciênc. educ. (Bauru) [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.3, pp.453-463. ISSN 1980-850X.

Concept maps are an important instrument for following-up learning processes, and demand the comprehension of their construction methods. The purpose of this study is to present and discuss conceptual maps and their analysis criteria elaborated by students enrolled in the Master Program Teaching in Health Sciences. The selection of analysis criteria were:the quantity and quality of concepts, levels of hierarchy, number of interrelations, words of connection and propositions which express logical meaning, structure of the map: sequential or network, representativeness of contents and creativity. Data were systematized regarding quantitative and qualitative dimensions. Hierarchical structures of rich conceptual meaning and representativeness of the analyzed themes were identified. It was concluded that the construction processes led the students to establish relationships between new contents and their previous knowledge thus creating new possibilities of integration. The analysis was effective as an instrument for the teacher in the health area to develop evaluative practices engaged in the student's learning processes.
