    This paper describes the evaluation of Maths Island Tutor - an intelligent tutoring system for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The tutor includes an open learner model (OLM). In order to benefit from this feature, the learner needs to be able to process metacognitive attributes, which can be impaired in ASD. In order to address the needs of this specific population, young people with ASD were involved in the design of the software for their use, including the OLM. A preliminary study evaluating the system demonstrated that young people with ASD did initiate access to their OLM, could correctly reproduce details from their OLM, and could also highlight the location of (study-intended) errors within their OLMs giving rise to suggestions about their abilities to remember and potentially meta-cognitively reflect on their learning.
