HRDE has developed and validated a series of inventories designed to produce precise understanding of an individual's level of autonomy as a learner. Completion of the five inventory battery yields a Learner Autonomy Profile (LAP). The individual's LAP provides specific information that can be utilized to increase reliance upon strengths and overcome weaknesses related to learner autonomy.
  • The Inventory of Learner Desire (ILD) -- 33 items, est. 5 mins.
  • The Inventory of Learner Resourcefulness (ILR) -- 53 items, est. 9 mins.
  • The Inventory of Learner Initiative (ILI) -- 44 items, est. 7 mins.
  • The Inventory of Learner Persistence (ILP) -- 34 items, est. 6 mins.
  • The Appraisal of Learner Autonomy (ALA) -- 9 items, est. 2 mins.

Respondents need not complete more than one inventory at a time, but once each is started it must be completed in a single session. A Learner Autonomy Profile is produced for each inventory, but all five inventories must be completed before profiles can be produced.

The Inventory of Learner Desire (ILD)

The Inventory of Learner Desire assesses seven dimensions of the respondent's world-view and view of self. The profile produced identifies issues and attitudes that contribute or detract from the individual's capacity to form intentions related to learning.

The Inventory of Learner Resourcefulness (ILR)

The Inventory of Learner Resourcefulness assesses seven dimensions of the respondent's intention to engage in behaviors that constitute essential resources in learning. The profile produced identifies issues and attitudes that contribute or detract from the individual's intention to mobilize both the internal and external resources associated with learning processes.

The Inventory of Learner Initiative (ILI)

The Inventory of Learner Initiative assesses five dimensions of the respondent's intention to engage in behaviors associated with initiation of learning processes. The profile produced identifies issues and attitudes that contribute or detract from the individual's intention to take appropriate initiatives associated with learning processes.

The Inventory of Learner Persistence (ILP)

The Inventory of Learner Persistence assesses three dimensions of the respondent's intention to engage in behaviors associated with persistence in learning processes. The profile produced identifies issues and attitudes that contribute or detract from the individual's intention to persist in learning processes until appropriate personal satisfaction is reached.

The Appraisal of Learner Autonomy (ALA)

The Appraisal of Learner Autonomy assesses the respondent's general beliefs concerning the ability to act intentionally with reference to learning activities. The scale was derived from Professor Albert Bandura's (Stanford University) exercise self-efficacy scale with his permission.
