How can I re-measure my Skill IQ?

Tags: Skills

Taking a skill assessment gives you a Skill IQ. You can re-measure your Skill IQ in two ways: you can take a skill assessment do-over, or earn a skill assessment retake. Find information on both options below.

Who can use this?


Skill assessment do-over

A do-over gives you the opportunity to take a skill assessment again. Immediately after you complete a skill assessment, you’ll unlock a one-time do-over which is only available for 48 hours after you take the skill assessment. If you take a do-over and score lower, it’s okay — we remove that lower score and keep the higher score.

To take a do-over, go to your profile page (opens in new tab), click the Skill IQ you want, and click Try Again.

After you take your do-over, you can see a date when your next skill assessment will be available.

Skill assessment retake

A skill assessment retake is the opportunity for you to have your skill proficiency re-evaluated after developing more in a skill. This will help you measure improvement and track your progress over time.

Important: Unlike a do-over, a retake does not remove the lower score. The retake becomes the new score. However, you will get a do-over opportunity after any retake.

A skill assessment retake unlocks 21 days from the last day you took the skill assessment. This includes the initial assessment, do-overs, and retakes. Retakes unlock for any skill assessment. All available retakes display at the top of your All Skills page (opens in new tab).

You cannot stop or reset a retake. Once you begin a retake, you must complete it or come back to it later on.

Click the Finish button to complete any unfinished retakes.
