Open learner models (OLM) are learner models which are accessible to the learner, allowing them to view, and sometimes modify, their model. This openness may raise questions of learner trust in their learner model: if users do not agree with, or trust the information they can see about themselves, their trust in the interaction will likely be reduced.

This paper introduces two independent open learner models (learner models that are accessible to user viewing), which are deployed alongside university courses to facilitate self-assessment skills, planning and independent learning. OLMlets is used in specific courses, while UK-SpecIAL, a modular extension to OLMlets, draws on the OLMlets learner models to… (More)
This paper introduces t-OLM, an open learner model to investigate user trust in a range of learner model externalisations. It was found that, while sufficient levels of use were made to suggest user trust in an externalised learner model, the relationship between trust and perceived utility, perceived accuracy, and level of understanding of the model… (More)
Open learner models (OLM) enable users to access their learner model to view information about their understanding. Opening the learner model to the learner may increase their perceptions of how a system evaluates their knowledge and updates the model. This raises questions of trust relating to whether the learner believes the evaluations are correct, and… (More)
We consider open learner models (OLM) with reference to adaptive navigation support and learner control. Our purpose is to assess the potential of a greater range of OLMs in adaptive educational hypermedia. We introduce five OLMs, discuss how these might be applied, and present learner reactions.
