TLO is delighted to be able to offer you ELLI … the instrument that assesses and tracks Learning Power.
TLO’s work on building students’ Learning Power stems from the original 7 dimensions that were first confirmed in the ELLI research more than 20 years ago. Over the years, TLO has amplified the dimensions into a set of dispositions, habits and behaviours that give the dimensions greater substance for teachers as they work to improve classroom practice.
We now offer schools this unique way of discovering and tracking learning; the gateway to successful learning.
Welcome to ELLI … now available to TLO’s customers.
1. Where ELLI comes from.
ELLI (Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory) assesses Learning Power. It has been research-validated, both academically and operationally, among more than 100,000 people globally from all walks of life but most particularly among schoolchildren grappling to understand how they learn and thereby, improve their performance.
2. What ELLI does.
ELLI (Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory) is a valuable tool that can tell teachers how their learners are currently disposed to learn, how strong they feel their learning dispositions to be, how their learning dispositions work together to make up the current learner. ELLI offers a unique picture of how a student sees themselves as a learner. This saves teachers lengthy observation time or guesswork they would otherwise need to make a judgement. And the really clever bit is that re-taking the questionnaire enables teachers to check and track the progress learners are making as a result of teachers’ use of learning language and classroom interventions.
3.What ELLI gives you
ELLI tracks changes in your students’ profiles as their responsiveness to learning changes AND it is highly sensitive to the learning environment. It doesn’t pigeon-hole the student learner but their learning profile changes with them.
Input: students answer an on-line questionnaire. Each question has only 4 possible, repeated answers, ∙ very like me ∙ quite like me ∙ a little like me ∙ not like me.
Output: an immediate, but simple, spidergraphic with a student-friendly single page explanation. Students can then learn more about their profile by discussing it with one another and their teachers.
4. The hidden benefits that ELLI offers.
A Learning Power profile provides the basis for learning focused learning conversations. Use of Elli encourages a school to design a curriculum to give students opportunities to stretch and develop all of their learning dimensions. ELLI makes it possible to capture hard-to-reach data in its profiles, giving schools evidence of students’ growth in self-regulation, independence, confidence and resilience.
On the staffing side the ELLI profile can greatly enhance and future proof the school’s staff selection process, finding employability dispositions to ensure successful candidates thrive and contribute to the school’s learning culture. Elli also supports induction and performance management and staff development.
