Learn how analytics can support growth

What is analytics?

Tech Foundations analytics allow you to see how your learners are progressing toward topic learning, which assessments they've passed, and which topics are most popular within your plan.

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

Using analytics as an admin

As an admin, you can use the Tech Foundations analytics to learn how your organization is using Tech Foundations 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 Tech Foundations is having on your business objectives. Quickly see which topics your learners are watching most, which assessments have the highest pass rate, and the overall usage of Tech Foundations assessments and topic videos.

Using analytics as a plan admin or team manager

As a plan admin or team manager, you have the potential to make 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.

Do they respond to challenges to pass a specific assessment by a certain time? Do they respond to the challenge to be the first in the organization to complete all assessments?

To get an even deeper look into analytics, visit the analytics dashboard (opens in new tab).
