Pluralsight Skills updates our skill assessments on a regular basis. We retire or version assessments based on certain criteria.
Who can use this?
What happened to the skill assessment and my Skill IQ score?
We retire an assessment in one of two ways:
- Replacing multiple assessments by combining them into one
- Ending the assessment in its entirety
Based on these options, the initial assessment you took could affect your Skill IQ. If an assessment combines into a new assessment, you'll need to take the new assessment to receive a new Skill IQ. If an assessment retires and is not replaced, you'll continue to see your score. You'll also receive a message that states the assessment has retired.
What does it mean when an assessment is in beta?
We version an assessment when questions need to be updated. It will move back into beta and remain there until the assessment gets updated. The validation period between assessments can take between a day or a few months depending on the traffic. You'll need to retake the assessment once it is out of beta to receive a new Skill IQ.
