A traditional cognitive map has been extended to what is known as FCM, acronym for Fuzzy Cognitive Map. FCM combines two popular soft computing techniques, namely fuzzy logic and neural network. FCM has emerged as knowledge representation and reasoning technique for modeling causal complex problems with inherent uncertainties. Indeed, past research has shown that FCM has been successfully applied in various domain such as computer science, medicine, education, and others. Application of FCM in education such as mathematic or science are very diverse, from student modeling to diagnosing studentâ€™s misconception in learning and from assessing processes in teaching-learning to identifying learning-styles preference. This paper reviews the most recent application of FCM within educational context over the past five years and analyzed them based on the educational problem addressed, areas within education domain, problem-solving paradigm, and limitations. The discussion follows from the summary of the analysis and finally suggests direction for further improvement.
