Our project has been developing a mobile learning system that helps learners in vocabulary acquirement. In the system, learners can set up learning materials by themselves. This paper focuses on a subsystem, SIGMA, to share and exchange learning materials among learners. In addition, SIGMA enables learners to give evaluation scores and comments to all the learning materials stored in the system. We assumed that the evaluation scores may be useful for helping the learners select appropriate materials. In this paper, it will be discussed that the management policy of the system by teachers based on relationship between learners’ capability in vocabulary and reliability of the evaluation scores given by them. As a result of experiment, it was found that learners with a large vocabulary can evaluate the learning materials better than learners who are not good at vocabulary relatively.
