Become more effective in any life situation by understanding how you learn.

The Kolb Learn­ing Style Inven­to­ry (KLSI) was cre­at­ed to help you under­stand your unique way of learn­ing and to use insights to improve your learn­ing power.

The report, based on the sur­vey you com­plete, describes your learn­ing strengths and will lead you through a process of apply­ing them to learn­ing in your every­day life.

Devel­oped in 1971 by David A. Kolb, [link to David’s bio] the KLSI is based on a the­o­ry of learn­ing from expe­ri­ence that draws on the work of learn­ing and devel­op­ment schol­ars such as John Dewey, Jean Piaget, Carl Jung, Carl Rogers and William James.

The KLSI can help employ­ees or stu­dents under­stand how his or her learn­ing style affects prob­lem solv­ing, team­work, han­dling con­flict, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and career choice. The results can help teams find out why they work well togeth­er or encounter con­flict. And it strength­ens over­all learn­ing for peo­ple in all walks of life.

How It Works

The KLSI is a self-admin­is­tered assess­ment that you com­plete online. The inven­to­ry takes 10–15 min­utes to com­plete. Once you sub­mit your answers, you will receive an email with your detailed per­son­al report, which includes:

  • Your learn­ing style pro­file and how it plays out in the four learn­ing phases
  • A detailed descrip­tion and inter­pre­ta­tion of your learn­ing style, its strengths and chal­lenges, and how it affects your inter­ac­tions with oth­ers with dif­fer­ent learn­ing styles
  • Your learn­ing flex­i­bil­i­ty profile
  • Ways to apply your style pro­file to every­day life
  • Valu­able resources to con­tin­ue your learn­ing journey

The report also pro­vides detailed infor­ma­tion on how the scores were deter­mined, and gen­er­al infor­ma­tion about all learn­ing styles and the learn­ing cycle, to con­tin­ue your explo­ration of expe­ri­en­tial learning.

This assess­ment is the fourth and newest ver­sion of the lead­ing mea­sure for learn­ing styles.

Who Should Take The KLSI?

  • Indi­vid­ual life­long learners

  • Edu­ca­tors, teach­ers, admin­is­tra­tors, train­ers, coach­es and mentors

Under­stand­ing how peo­ple learn can help you to tar­get your train­ing and devel­op­ment efforts, moti­vate teams and make opti­mum use of your col­lec­tive time, resources and capa­bil­i­ties. The Kolb Learn­ing Style Inven­to­ry rec­og­nizes indi­vid­ual learn­ing pref­er­ences, while encour­ag­ing indi­vid­u­als to expand learn­ing strengths.
