Introduction to the personalized skill analysis

Personalized skill analysis gives insight into your or your team's strengths and gaps by topic, making it easier to identify areas for skill development.

Personalized skill analysis can change based on the assessment retake results. This is key to tracking improvement.

Team insights from the personalized skill analysis

If you're on a team plan with advanced analytics, personalized skill analysis gives you insight into gaps within your team and allows you to:

  • Create individual learning plans for individuals on your plan through the use of channels.
  • Understand the strengths and gaps on your team.
  • Focus individual learning on specific topics within a skill.
  • Help learners on your team discover new concepts to skill up on.

Getting your personalized skill analysis

In order to populate a personalized skill analysis, complete the following:

  1. Take a skill assessment.
  2. Score in the 20th percentile or higher (a 101+ Skill IQ).

Once both of these steps are complete, your personalized skill analysis is ready for you. If you receive a Novice skill level, don't worry—you can retake the assessment immediately with the do-over. If you've already used it, wait 21 days and take the assessment again to see if you have improved.

Finding your personalized skill analysis

To find your personalized skill analysis, visit your profile page (opens in new tab) and go to the Skill IQs section. Click one of the topics that shows a skill level of Proficient Emerging or higher. This will populate your Skill IQ details page, which includes your personalized skill analysis. See example below:

Finding your team's personalized skill analysis

If a learner on your team has already taken an assessment and achieved a skill level of Proficient Emerging or higher, team managers and plan admins can find their personalized skill analysis in two areas:

  • From the Skills analytics tab:
  1. Click Analytics in the left-hand Leader Tools sidebar. This takes you to the Skills Inventory tab.
  2. Scroll down to the table and click a subject to see a list of learners and their skill levels.

Note: Clicking a specific learner with a Proficient Emerging or higher skill level will load their Skill IQ details page and include their personalized skill analysis. However, you will not be able to see personalized content recommendations for learners on your team.

  • From the People tab
  1. Click People in the left-hand Leader Tools sidebar. This takes you to the Organization tab.
  2. Click a specific learner or use the filter to search by name or email. This will load their Skill IQ details page and include their personalized skill analysis.
