This paper argues that conceptual models and more specifically reference models play a key role in the specification and design of information systems. However, an effective evaluation strategy of such models is a relatively immature field. The paper presents the key challenges for this evaluation activity and articulates an approach for understanding how to evaluate models based on the information and cognitive theories of structuralism and conversation theory. An example of a reference model developed for the Higher Education domain is used as a case study to illustrate how the approach may be applied.
