Post-Assessment Concept Map- 6 Months After Course-Student B

Six months after the completion of the course (8 months after the unit on the eastern deciduous forest), we asked one of our students to construct a concept map about the eastern deciduous forest ecosystem without looking at their course notes. Except for the tick life stage on each animal, which the student checked after making the map, the map was constructed from the student's recall of eastern deciduous forest issues. We then used Cmap Tools ver. 3.8 to present the map here. The point is that this student has, in long-term memory, a much more sophisticated understanding of an ecosystem than at the outset of the course- now complex relationships, and a sense of population dynamics are shown.
