If designers of modelling languages want their creations to be used in real software projects, the communication qualities of their languages need to be evaluated, and their proposals must evolve as a result of these evaluations. A key quality of communication artifacts is their comprehensibility. We present a flexible framework to evaluate the comprehensibility of model representations that is grounded on the underlying theory of the language to be evaluated, and on theoretical frameworks in cognitive science.
