Abstract: Concept maps are a direct method of looking into the organization of an individual's knowledge within a particular domain. Research has shown that concept maps are effective instruments for assessing conceptual understanding in science education. Comparatively little use of concept mapping has been made in mathematics. It is worthwhile to explore the use of concept maps in mathematics, especially in the light of current emphasis on conceptual understanding in mathematics curriculum. This paper provides a brief overview of the use of concept maps as a tool for assessing secondary students' conceptual understanding of a mathematics topic, quadrilateral. The way how concept maps are introduced, constructed, and assessed are described. Students’ performance of concept mapping is discussed, together with selected examples of their concept maps. Suggestions for future implication are also provided.
