What you can do

Roles analytics gives you a snapshot of your team's role usage. This data helps you:

  • Identify the roles learners are engaging with the most
  • View role skill proficiencies and averages

Roles analytics can be seen by both plan admins and team managers. Team managers can only see analytics for the teams they manage.

In order for a learner to appear in roles analytics, they must self-assess in their role.

Roles analytics are in real time, updated every 15 minutes.

Note: Only roles that have been validated will show up in analytics. If a role is unvalidated, that means we're still collecting data to provide you with relevant and meaningful information.

Note: If a learner completed all assessments in a role but is not showing a Role IQ level, they must go back to their role details page. This assigns the role level to the learner.
