In this paper we present a methodology for creating concept map exercises for students. Concept mapping is a common pedagogical exercise in which students generate a graph- ical model of some domain. Our method auto- matically extracts knowledge representations from a textbook and uses them to generate concept maps. The purpose of the study is to generate and evaluate these concept maps ac- cording to their accuracy, completeness, and pedagogy.
