Skill IQ tips

What is Skill IQ? It’s a simple way to measure your skill in 5 minutes or less. Skill IQ is a time-based assessment that will rate you as a novice, proficient, or expert in a skill area. 

  • Did you make a mistake? You get one free Skill IQ do-over -- here’s how.

  • Taking a Skill IQ before taking Pluralsight courses, lets Pluralsight assess your current level of mastery. Plus, this lets you skip beginner courses if your skills are at the intermediate level or higher.

  • After you get your Skill IQ, Pluralsight will give you recommendations on what courses to take, to close your skill gaps. 

  • You can retake your Skill IQ after completing 60% of the content in the level of the path that Skill IQ has placed you in. Here’s more information about retaking Skill IQ.

  • Pluralsight will send you a certificate of achievement if you score expert or proficient on the JavaScript Skill IQ or the Google: Associate Android Developer (AAD) Skill IQ. This certificate is only available to Grow with Google learners.

Course learning tools and tips

Each Pluralsight video course details page has tools to help you succeed.


You can begin each course by clicking the orange Start Course button. Below that button, you’ll find some of these extra learning aids:

  • A clickable transcript of the course

    Note: While many Pluralsight courses have transcripts, some do not. We are adding transcripts to courses every week.

  • Exercise files to download. For some courses, this is a .PDF of the course slides; other course exercise files allow you to code along with the author.
  • A Discussion board that allows you to post questions and learn along with other learners
  • Some courses have learning checks that help gauge what you’ve learned from the course.

Tip: If you have a Windows or MacOS device, download our offline app so you can download courses for playing later.
