Abstract

Teachers or researchers can develop their own assessment instruments using Inspiration 6® which is a computerized visual learning tool that inspires students to develop and organize their ideas. It supports visual thinking techniques, enabling students to easily create and update concept maps. This study used the concept maps to evaluate progress in high-order reasoning skills in elementary statistics. Female students from a high school SummerMath program brainstormed, reasoned and created maps linking basic statistical terms and ideas, differences in knowledge, design and organization emerged. Such maps provided valuable diagnostic information essential to good teaching.
