The Learner Model of an Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) may be made visible (opened) to its users. An Open Learner Model (OLM) may also become a learning resource in its own right, independently of an ITS. OLMs offer potential for learner reflection and support to metacognitive skills such as self-assessment, in addition to improving learner model accuracy. This paper describes an evaluation of an inspectable and a negotiated OLM (one that can be jointly maintained through student-system… Expand
Open Learner Models as Drivers for Metacognitive Processes
TLDR
This chapter considers some of the similarities between the goals of supporting and encouraging metacognition in intelligent tutoring systems and learning in general, and the benefits of opening the learner model to the user. Expand
Learner Models as Drivers for Metacognitive Processes
Maintaining a model of the learner’s understanding as they interact with an e-learning environment allows adaptation to the learner’s educational needs. An Open Learner Model makes this machine'sExpand

TLDR
The use of negotiated open learner models are suggested as a means to both maintain the accuracy of learNER models comprising multiple sources of data and prompt learner reflection during this model discussion process. Expand

TLDR
This overview outlines key issues in learning with an open learner model (OLM) and how opening the model in an understandable form provides additional methods of prompting reflection, planning, and other metacognitive activities that are important in learning. Expand
Preliminary Evaluation of a Negotiable Student Model in a Constraint-Based its
TLDR
This research implements a basic negotiable student model into a version of a complex and internationally deployed Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS), and shows promising results. Expand
Visualising alignment to support students’ judgment of confidence in open learner models
TLDR
The results indicate the importance of communicating the alignment between the system’s evaluation of student performance and student confidence in the correctness of their answers as a means to support metacognitive skills. Expand
Metacognition and Open Learner Models
This paper considers some of the similarities between the goals of supporting and encouraging metacognition in intelligent tutoring systems and learning in general, and the benefits of opening theExpand
Enhancing learning outcomes through self-regulated learning support with an Open Learner Model
TLDR
Two classroom experiments support the notion that an OLM can enhance students’ domain-level learning outcomes through scaffolding of SRL processes, and are among the first in-vivo classroom experiments to do so. Expand
A New Perspective of Negotiation-Based Dialog to Enhance Metacognitive Skills in the Context of Open Learner Models
TLDR
The results of the evaluations show that the NDLtutor is able to produce significant improvements in the self-assessment accuracy of the learners and also provides adequate support for prompting self-reflection in learners. Expand
Towards a negotiable student model for constraint-based ITSs
TLDR
This research implements a basic negotiable student model into a version of a complex and internationally deployed ITS, and participants felt the negotable student model was both useful for learning, and enjoyable to use. Expand

CALMsystem: A Conversational Agent for Learner Modelling
TLDR
A conversational agent, or ''chatbot'' has been developed to allow the learner to negotiate over the representations held about them using natural language, to support the metacognitive goals of self-assessment and reflection, which are increasingly seen as key to learning and are being incorporated into UK educational policy. Expand
STyLE-OLM: Interactive Open Learner Modelling
  • V. Dimitrova
  • Computer Science
  • Int. J. Artif. Intell. Educ.

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
Bringing chatbots into education: Towards natural language negotiation of open learner models
TLDR
It is concluded that a fusion of the two fields can lead to developing negotiation techniques for chatbots and the enhancement of the Open Learner Model, and this technology, if successful, could have widespread application in schools, universities and other training scenarios. Expand
Evaluating the Effect of Open Student Models on Self-Assessment
TLDR
The results show that even simple open student models can have important positive effects on learning and students' meta-cognitive skills. 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
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
Exploring Participative Learner Modelling and Its Effects on Learner Behaviour
TLDR
This research suggests that participative learner modelling may increase the abilities of learners to report accurately their problem-solving knowledge and to carry out novel tasks in the same domain—the sort of behavioural changes expected from increased learners’ awareness and reflection. Expand
Limitations of Student Control: Do Students Know When They Need Help?
TLDR
Data about students' use of the help facilities of the PACT Geometry Tutor, a cognitive tutor for high school geometry, suggest that students do not always have metacognitive skills to support students in learning domain-specific skills and knowledge. Expand
Supporting Interaction Preferences and Recognition of Misconceptions with Independent Open Learner Models
TLDR
Two independent open learner models used alongside seven university courses to highlight the state of their knowledge to the learner as a starting point for their independent study are presented. Expand

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
