Web report

To get started:

  1. Log in to your Pluralsight Skills account.
  2. Click Analytics in the left navigation panel.
  3. Click Skills inventory in the top center panel.
  4. Scroll down to the inventory table and click a subject.

Overview

  1. The overview shows overall metrics regarding subjects your users have engaged with. The data fields include:
  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.
  3. You can filter the web report by entering a keyword or phrase.

Visualizations

Two groups of visualizations are found below the overview section. Click the assessment engagement and proficiency trend over time tabs to view the respective visualizations.

Assessment engagement

The assessment engagement visualization shows data for each skill assessment included in the subject you selected, including the number and percentage of users who have taken an assessment vs. those who have not. Hover over with your mouse—or tap, on a mobile device—a percentage bar to see the number of users. The total number of users represents how many users—according to the filters you have set—have engaged in content and assessments related to the selected subject.

The first row shows an aggregation of all assessments that are part of the selected subject. Below that, each respective assessment is listed individually.

Beside each assessment, an Invite to assess button allows you to email an invitation to users who have engaged with this subject—within the selected time range—but have not yet taken the assessment. Click Invite to assess to preview the email. Click Send to send the email to your users, which includes  a link to the skill assessment.

Proficiency trend over time

The proficiency trend over time tab includes two visualizations:

  • The reassessed users visualization 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
  • The skill level breakdown visualization 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.
