The UCLA National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing CRESST designed and developed a knowledge mapping tool intended to measure content understanding. This report presents a review of knowledge mapping scoring methods and current online mapping systems, and the overall design, functionality, scoring, usability testing, and authoring capabilities of the CRESST system. While several tools exist that are available to construct knowledge maps, CRESSTs knowledge mapping tool is one of the only systems designed specifically for assessment purposes, the only system that can support multiple assessment formats, and the only system with an empirical research base. Limitations of the system and possible next steps are discussed.
