The Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI) was created in 2004 by Deakin-Crick and Broadfoot et al. It offers a self-reported snapshot on how the learner’s current learning maps onto a set of seven dimensions of learning power:

Changing and learning

Belief that you can grow, adapt and change as a learner throughout life

Stuck and static

Critical curiosity

Desire to find things out. Take ownership of your learning and enjoy a challenge.

Passivity

Meaning making

Look for links between learning and knowledge. Enjoy fitting things together

Fragmentation

Resilience

Love of challenge. Desire to try even if outcome and way forward are uncertain

Dependence and fragility

Creativity

Liike playing with ideas. Understand learning also needs playfulness.

Rule bound

Relationships / interdependence

Good at managing the balance between being sociable and private.

Dependence or isolation

Strategic awareness

Sensitive to your own learning. Reflective and good at self evaluation.

Robotic

 

These dimensions are not fixed, but can be worked on and developed by learners, often with the support of a mentor. ELLI can therefore be considered as a form of assessment designed to promote reflection on learning.
