The aim of this paper is to analyze how well a website that we developed (conceptmapsforlearning.com) conforms to principles of effective assessment for learning. The concept maps for learning website is the integration of a user management system and a concept mapping system. The user system is created by using PHP language whereas the concept map system is developed by using Adobe Flash software. The user management system consists of four different users: administrator, expert, operator and student. According to Greenstein (2010), there are three basic principles of formative assessment: student focused, instructionally informative and outcome based. It is concluded that the concept maps for learning website conforms well to principles of effective assessment for learning. Nonetheless, a few further developments are recommended for the website, such as inclusion of an online discussion forum.
