Kolb Learning Style Inventory 4.0

A Tribute to the Kolb Learning Style Inventory 4.0 (KLSI 4.0)

The Kolb Learning Styles Inventory (KLSI) was used for 50 years to help people identify the way they learn from experience. Throughout that time, David Kolb continually improved the Learning Style instrument through 6 successive iterations.

For the past decade, people have been empowered to take charge of their own learning and life using the Kolb Learning Style Inventory 4.0 (KLSI 4.0). The KLSI 4.0 brought new and expanded ideas to Experiential Learning with the new nine experiential learning styles and the concept of learning flexibility and back up styles.

Welcome to the NEW Kolb Experiential Learning Profile (KELP)

Now, based on years of extensive research and updating, the KLSI 4.0 has been upgraded to the new Kolb Experiential Learning Profile (KELP).  This new report by David and Alice Kolb, and Experience Based Learning Systems, LLC, represents a refocusing on a broader and more personalized view of the learning process, learning style, and learning flexibility.

This next generation KELP provides learners with a self-reflection tool to help them understand how they learn from experience and their unique individual approach to learning and living.  

The KELP is the result of an extensive research base of more than 106,000 Google Scholar citations and continuous improvements through six previous versions. Millions of users in 164 countries around the world have contributed to the KELP normative comparison group of more than 26,000 students and working adults from a wide range of occupations and educational backgrounds.

We continue to learn and develop so that you, your students, clients, teams, and colleagues can, too.
