Abstract: Concept maps are an effective way of representing organized knowledge (concepts) in hierarchical fashion regarding a person’s understanding of a domain of knowledge. Within our custom developed e-Learning platform it was created a concept map for a chapter of a discipline. The obtained concept map has been used for creation the test and exam questions such that knowledge regarding each concept is tested by a certain number of quizzes. We present the architecture of a decision support system that assesses the accumulated knowledge of students. The architecture’s business logic is based on a concept map of a chapter of a discipline. A custom algorithm has been designed and implemented to measure the coverage of the curriculum. The system may be generalized for entire discipline as long as for each chapter is set up a concept map and all other necessary settings.
