Abstract: As a learning analysis technique, learner profile can comprehensively and deeply depict students' learning effect and learning process through diversified data collected. However, not all types of data can be directly collected through information technology, and learners' ability and accomplishment is just one of them. To solve this problem, this paper designed an assessment tool for learner profile targeting core learning abilities of the primary and middle school students. It summarizes the three dimensions of cognition, emotion and metacognition by analyzing the learning ability assessment tools of major countries and regions, and constructs the learning ability questionnaire for primary and middle school students under these three dimensions. To verify the reliability and validity of the questionnaire, the researchers sent an online questionnaire to students in grades 4-9 in 16 schools in the M District of Shanghai, and 2,879 valid responses were collected. By statistically analyzing the responses, the researchers found that the questionnaire had high reliability and validity. The questionnaire has the following two characteristics:first, the questionnaire is independent of subject knowledge and applicable to students of various ages; second, it is designed for learner profile and from the perspective of academic learning of primary school and middle students.
