Practical measurement and assessment of mental models is not a simple task. There is a lack of assessment tools that can directly and accurately evaluate mental models. This proposed research study on evaluation of mental models uses a set of Web-based assessment tools called HIMATT (Highly Integrated Model Assessment Technology and Tools) developed by an international researcher group to address the need for automated tools. Subjects in this study uses DEEP (Dynamic Evaluation of Enhanced Problem Solving) and T-MITOCAR (Text-Model Inspection Trace of Concepts and Relations) which are embedded into HIMATT. Subjects’ conceptualizations of complex mathematics problems are analyzed and compared within a novice group and with an expert group. Results of subjects’ conceptualization of given problem scenarios and solutions are analyzed by comparison of using DEEP tool and T-MITOCAR tool.
