Learn how analytics can support growth

Pluralsight analytics helps you make sense of the numbers. By knowing what your learners are doing—or not doing—in the platform, you'll be able to identify strengths or gaps in learning. You can spot usage trends, favorite types of content, and popular skill assessments. Analytics helps you prove the impact that Skills is having on your team.

Whatever metrics you’re interested in reporting on, you can be confident that you're getting the whole picture. Analytics are updated in real-time, ensuring that you’re seeing the most up-to-date information possible. You can use the Skills platform to view analytics, or download CSV reports for added reporting flexibility.

What is analytics?

Pluralsight's business analytics allow you to see how your learners are progressing toward role mastery, skill growth, channel completion, course completion, subjects concentration, and overall view time.

Plan admins have full access to analytics. Team managers can also see a limited view, depending on their permissions.

Using analytics as an executive

As an executive, you can use the Leader tools dashboard to learn how your organization is using Skills in 30 seconds or less, giving you the big picture quickly.

You can examine each set of analytics on the dashboard to determine tech skill development, and help you quantify the impact Skills is having on your business objectives. Quickly see your learners’ Skill IQ levels and most-watched subjects and content, discover which channels are getting the most views, and keep track of your license count.

Using analytics as a plan admin or team manager

As a plan admin or team manager, you have the potential for making a huge impact on your learners' tech skill development. By looking at your own team's analytics, you can discover how your team learns best.

You can foster skill development by curating channels with content that has already been statistically proven to help other teammates' tech skills improve. Collaborate with top users to identify which courses were most useful in helping them increase their skill ratings.

You can review channel activity on your dashboard to see which collections are most engaging to learners. Do shorter channels hold learners' interest more? Or are comprehensive channels more appealing to your team?
