  1. You can customize the web report with the date range filter.
  2. You can customize the web report with the teams filter. To view unassigned users, make sure all teams are deselected.

Visualizations

You’ll find two visualizations below the overview section:

Reassessed users trend over time

Reassessed users shows the progress of learners who completed a skill assessment at least twice. Data points on the graph include:

  • First: the average of the initial scores of all learners who reassessed
  • Last: the average of the most recent scores of all learners who reassessed

Skill level breakdown

Skill level breakdown shows the percentage of learners in each of the five skill levels, highlighting how their skills have changed over time. You can click the segments of the top bar to see how those users have moved between skill levels. Data used for the two bar graphs include:

  • First: skill breakdown of the initial scores of all learners who reassessed
  • Last: skill breakdown of the most recent scores of all learners who reassessed

Tip: A minimum of seven reassessed learners are required to populate the skill level breakdown. Adjusting the date range filter to a wider date range may help if your selection lacks enough data to populate the visualization. 

Tables
