Concept maps are an excellent assessment tool when they have been used for teaching and learning [1]. This chapter presents the development of a Formative and Summative Assessment (FSA) Table for Concept Maps. The suggested table was developed in a large university in the South of Brazil as part of a doctoral research attached to a research group that focuses on Innovative Methodologies, Concept Mapping and Information, Communication and Technologies (ICT). The research that generated the proposed FSA Table was carried out with 7 groups of ‘English as a Foreign Language’ (EFL) students. The FSA Table was tested, improved and applied along the semesters of each of the 7 courses. The data gathered as well as the researcher’s observation on students’ pieces of work and assessments allows us to conclude that the FSA Table suggested can be a very useful tool to assist in the teaching and learning process.
