I flag it here because it uses some of the conceptual modelling work I've been involved in. My main direct contribution is Section [...]

So, let's start at the top left. The [...]

First of an projected series setting out a conceptual model including learning, evaluation and awarding, in time showing the evolution of a conceptual model and the reasons and motives behind that.
