Abstract: The Skills and Knowledge Profile (SKP) as presented in this paper is a tool intended to document learning styles and strategies of adult learners. The stated goal of researchers was to develop a systematic approach to capturing the learning of unemployed and employed adults across sectors. In order to develop a user-friendly utilitarian SKP they adopted an action based research method, engaging learners in a unionized factory, community-based women's employment program and community-based literacy program. Volunteers in all the three sites committed their time and efforts to filling out the SKP and then provided us with feedback on the clarity, usefulness and ease of the tool. The paper documents the evolution of the SKP from its inception in the spring of '97 to the end of the '98. The SKP is shown to have traveled through the hands of learners in Ontario and British Colombia and workshop participants in Montreal and Toronto all of which have offered feedback that has made the final product significantly different than the original version. The SKP has experienced revisions on three fronts: the text and format of the SKP; the method by which it is administered; and the purpose of the SKP
