Abstract. The design of learner models that are open to the student's perusal is
challenging, because a variety of competing objectives must be reconciled: com-
prehensiveness versus comprehensibility, and student control versus model validity.
This paper suggests one approach to meeting the challenge that begins by identify-
ing three dimensions of transparency in learner models. These provide a framework
in which to design appropriate views of the data and limited controls, that best sat-
isfy the requirements for the model. Part of one solution is to logically and phys-
ically distribute the records that comprise the model. The current status of learner
modeling in the INFACT system is described.
