The purpose of this study was to verify factor structure and validation of Oddi Continuing Learning Inventory (OCLI) and prove up possibility of usage as an evaluation tool for evaluating life-long learning. 330 students in school of engineering of I university at Incheon province were responded for OCLI. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis. As the exploratory factor analysis results, 24 items in original version were converted to 19 items. The total reliability was .774 and the total covariance was 40.57%. As the confirmatory factor analysis results, four items were removed and GFI .938, AGFI .915, CFI .908 appeared to fit all the criteria. The RMSEA index 0.054 also appeared to fit significantly higher.
