Abstract : The recent development of cognitive psychology and science suggests that the lack of understanding of important structural relations between the entities in a problem-solving domain causes difficulties in learning. This study proposes a new scoring method by which the structural relations as well a processes used in subcomponents of the knowledge structure are taken into account when determining the scores. By so doing, a score of 'I' derived by wrong reasons will be eliminated and patterns of zeros and ones will contain information closely associated with student's cognitive processes. The procedure is illustrated with basic electricity problems. Keywords: rule space, error patterns.
