This paper describes a study in which individual learner models were built for students and presented to them with a choice of view. Students found it useful, and not confusing to be shown multiple representations of their knowledge, and individuals exhibited different preferences for which view they favoured. No link was established between these preferences and the students’ learning styles. We describe the implications of these results for intelligent tutoring systems where interaction with… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Evaluating the Effectiveness of Multiple Open Student Models in EER-Tutor
TLDR
The results show that OSM do have a positive effect on students' learning, however, the students showed clear preferences towards simpler representations than the more complex ones. Expand
20000 Inspections of a Domain-Independent Open Learner Model with Individual and Comparison Views
TLDR
A domain-independent open learners model with multiple simple views on individual learner model data is introduced to help learners identify their knowledge, difficulties and misconceptions; prompt reflection on their knowledge and learning; and facilitate planning. Expand
The Effect of Open Student Model on Learning: A Study
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that students may learn concepts indirectly by viewing the open student model presented as taxonomic concept map after each problem. Expand
Student Preferences for Editing, Persuading, and Negotiating the Open Learner Model
TLDR
Results indicate that many students are less comfortable having direct control over the content of their learner model than in situations where the system has the final say over proposed changes. Expand
Some Unusual Open Learner Models
TLDR
Three environments that offer haptic feedback on learner model data are presented, and an approach which allows students to open their model to selected or to all peers and instructors, in anonymous or named form is presented. Expand
Open Learner Models
  • S. Bull, J. Kay
  • Computer Science

  • 2010
TLDR
The range of purposes that Open Learner Models can serve are described, illustrating these with diverse examples of the ways that they have been made available in several research systems. Expand
Reactions to Inspectable Learner Models : Seven Year Olds to University Students
This paper examines student reactions to inspectable learner models. We look at a simple example for children as young as 7, and university students using more complex inspectable learner models oneExpand
Interaction Preferences and Learning in an Inspectable Learner Model for Language
We present an inspectable learner model to prompt noticing in language learning, considering interaction preferences. Four patterns of model inspection were seen, but most students viewed the sameExpand
AIED 2009 Tutorial : Categorisation and Educational Benefits of Open Learner Models
TLDR
A framework for describing and analysing open learner models of adaptive learning environments is presented, and examples of its use to describe and compare adaptive educational systems are given. Expand
Designing learner-controlled educational interactions based on learning/cognitive style and learner behaviour
TLDR
It is suggested that while style information can be used to inform the design of learning environments that accommodate learners' individual differences, it would be wise to recommend interactions based on learners' behaviour. Expand

Learner Know Thyself: Student Models to Give Learner Control and Responsibility
TLDR
An approach to student modelling where the student can delve into the student model is described, which serves as a basis for planning learning goals, improving communication between the teaching system and the learner, and as an aid to reflection about learning. Expand
Externalising Learner Modelling Representations
TLDR
ViSMod, an interactive visualization tool for Bayesian learner models and ConceptLab, a knowledge construction and navigation system that uses XML-based conceptual maps to represent the learner's view of the domain are developed. Expand

TLDR
It is argued that IOLM is a fruitful approach which may be employed in intelligent learning environments both for obtaining a better model of a learner's cognitive state and engaging learners in reflective activities. Expand
Learner Models to Promote Reflection in Combined Desktop PC / Mobile Intelligent Learning Environments
TLDR
The potential for the use of learner models to promote reflection in combined desktop PC / mobile intelligent learning environments with reference to two systems that have an open learner model to promote learner reflection. Expand
STYLES AND STRATEGIES OF LEARNING
Summary. Previous results are reviewed and two series of experiments on learning are described, one carried out in the laboratory, and the other in educational institutions. Both series useExpand
Cooperative Student Models
There are benefits for a tutoring system that can tailor its feedback and presentation to meet the needs of individual students. However, there are numerous difficulties with obtaining enoughExpand
Incorporating learning styles in hypermedia environment: Empirical evaluation
In this paper a hypermedia system that incorporates global and sequential learning styles is described. Elements of learning styles such as the sequencing of pages and structure have beenExpand
' Did I say what I think I said , and do you agree with me ? ' : Inspecting and Questioning the Student Model
This paper describes a student model which is open to learner inspection, and whose contents may be jointly negotiated by the student and system. Both the learner and the system have the opportunityExpand
Incremental student modelling and reflection by verified concept-mapping
TLDR
VCM, the verified concept mapper is described, a novel form of concept mapping designed to elicit a learner’s understanding, as a basis for building a learners model. Expand
User Modeling and Adaptive Navigation Support in WWW-Based Tutoring Systems
