Visualizing learners’ information through the development of open learner models for improving the effectiveness of teaching and learning has attracted much attention in technology-mediated learning. There is, however, a lack of research in exploring the acceptance of open learner models in the pre-adoption of this model. This paper develops a multi-dimensional measurement model for assessing the pre-adoption of open learner models from the learners’ perspective. A pilot study is carried out to confirm the reliability and validity of the measurement model based on the data collected from 300 respondents using an online survey distributed in a higher education institution in Malaysia. This model provides a useful set of guidelines for educational institutions in developing efficient and effective policies to promote the adoption of open learner models in technology-mediated learning towards improving the performance of technology-mediated teaching and learning.
