Introducing Rigor in Concept Maps
Although concept maps have been found to be effective in science education research, these are critiqued for being informal due to informal usage of relation and attribute names thereby resulting in ambiguity. Refined concept mapping, a development over the regular concept mapping is an approach towards introducing rigor and parsimony in representing knowledge. The method proposed suggests to substitute the ambiguous relation names with well-defined relation names to concepts consistently while mapping a domain. We suggest the use of this method for introducing rigor in concept mapping and position it among the other models of knowledge representation in an inverse semantic spectrum.
