Role IQ for leaders: Starter and Professional plans

Tags: Skills

Role IQs are sets of Skill IQ assessments grouped by technical role. Role IQ helps you understand the skills important to your learners' roles within your organization. Whereas Skill IQ helps you understand individual skills in a given technology, Role IQ combines those skills—creating roles to help you skill up your teams into modern tech roles.

This article discusses Role IQ for Starter and Professional plans. For Enterprise plans, please see Role IQ for leaders: Enterprise plans.

Managing roles

Add an individual or team to a role

Admins can add learners or whole teams to a Role IQ. To add a learner or team to a role:

  1. Locate and click a role on the Role IQ admin page (opens in new tab).
  2. Click Add members.
  3. Type the learner or team name. You can also search using the learner’s primary email address.
  4. Click the checkbox(es) next to the learner or team.
  5. Click Continue.
  6. Optional: Type a customized message to the selected learner(s). By default, selected learners will receive an email notification, even if you don’t add a customized message. If you don’t want your learners to receive an email notification, uncheck Send email notification.
  7. Click Assign to finalize.

This will add the role to that learner's Role IQ page (opens in new tab).

Remove an individual or team from a role

If you no longer want a learner or team to be members of a Role IQ, you can remove them. To remove a learner from a role:

  1. Click the avatar(s) to the right of Add members.
  2. Type the learner or team name. You can also search using the learner’s  primary email address.
  3. Click Unassign next to each learner and team you want to remove.

Using Roles analytics

Note: Starter and Professional plans don’t have access to the Role IQ leader dashboard under Admin tools. Use Roles analytics within the Analytics tab described below.

On Professional plans, you have access to basic roles analytics, which gives you a high-level view of your learners' engagement with Role IQ. Basic roles analytics is also available as an add-on for Starter plans.

To get started, click Analytics (opens in new tab) using the left-pane navigation. Click the Roles tab in the top center panel.

Please see our article on Roles analytics for details.
