Learning by conceptual modeling is seeing uptake in secondary and higher education. However, assessment of conceptual models is underdeveloped. This paper proposes an assessment method for conceptual models. The method is based on a metric that includes 36 types of issues that diminish model features. The approach was applied by educators and positively evaluated. It was considered useful and the derived grades corresponded with their intuitions about the models quality.
