This chapter introduces the rationale for, and the design specification of the Next-TELL independent open learner model (IOLM). This IOLM provides a range of meaningful competency-based learning analytics to key stakeholders in the learning process about precisely the issues that are at the very core of learners’ continued development throughout their school career and indeed beyond. The Next-TELL IOLM is a resource that models and visualises the current state of learner competencies where information is available from many multiple formative assessment opportunities. We conclude with some design recommendations for future designers of IOLMs in the classroom context.
