Assessing My Learning Power
What’s the Diagnosis? …….. ‘CLARA’, was developed both to test out and refine the researchers’ understanding of learning power and to help people to take responsibiity for their own learning, to self-assess and improve.
In the questionnaire, you rate yourself against 49 statements on a four-point scale. CLARA is a ‘self-report’ questionnaire – it re-organises what you say about yourself into a profile: seven of the dimensions in the form of a spider diagram, with an ‘indicator’ for ‘Orientation to Learning’. What matters is the ‘big picture’ and the pattern and how you understand it.
Your Learning Power profile provides a converstation point for you to talk about your learning with a trusted mentor, coach or tutor. You are the best judge of whether you agree with it and in explaining it to yourself. You can ask other people to rate you on each dimension and check out other people’s assesment or you to see if it matches with yours.
