A tool is presented that can automatically assess the quality of students' concept maps and provide feedback based on a reference concept map. It is shown that this tool can effectively assess the quality of concept maps, and that it can provide accurate and helpful feedback on a number of specific shortcomings often evident in students' concept maps. However, it was also found that students who had access to feedback often did not request it, or did not take full advantage of the feedback given.
