Advanced skills analytics is only available to Enterprise customers. For Professional plans, please see our article on getting started with basic skills analytics.
After learning how to get started with basic skills analytics, see how you can view more advanced details about your team's skills. This information can give you specifics on what assessments individuals on your team are taking, what your teams strongest and weakest skills are, and their proficiency level.
Who can use this?
Advanced skills analytics gives a more in-depth breakdown of detail about your team's individual skills. This data includes information about the skills and usage of individuals within your team. With advanced skills analytics, you can:
- Discover hidden talent within your team, which can help you determine who to put on what projects.
- Identify skill levels across your team and close the skill gap within your organization.
- See distribution of skills within a subject.
To get started, log in to your Pluralsight Skills account and click the Analytics link in the left pane navigation menu. Next, click the Skills link at the top of the page. Then click a skill title.
B. The Skills Progress section shows how learners’ skills have changed over time. The progress of learners is separated into initial skill level sections. Below each section is a sortable list which can each be expanded by clicking the View Users button to show individual learner details like their first and last skill assessment dates, team, and proficiency level. Unlike the previous sections mentioned above, the skills progress statistics are updated when you load the page.
User View is the most detailed section of the Skill Analytics page. This data will give you a more individualized perspective on your team. To download a report on this data, click the Download button (found at the top of the page), and choose the User Skill Levels option for this particular section.
Question: Can I see Skill IQ scores for individuals on my team?
No. Only proficiency levels are viewable.
Question: Can I download a skills report for an individual on my team?
Although we don't have a downloadable report for specific individuals on your team, you can still view who has taken specific skill assessments(s) on the advanced analytics dashboard. By clicking on their name, you will be able to see their skill assessment listed.
Question: As a plan/team manager, can I see any reports around path progress?
No new reports are available with the release of paths, but you can still use your existing reports to see progress of courses within paths.
Question: Can I use Skill IQs for hiring, firing and promotion decisions?
Pluralsight’s skill assessments are not designed to be used as a candidate screening tool in the hiring process. While the results of Skill IQ are useful to motivate users to learn and benchmark abilities within an organization, employers should be aware that Pluralsight does not support a standard set of features that are commonly perceived requirements for screening tools. As such, Pluralsight does not recommend using Skill IQ as the singular measure of hard skills in the hiring process.
If a user has been issued a business Pluralsight license, and has activated that license, a business may choose to use their Skill IQ and Role IQ levels (Novice, Proficient, or Expert) in decision making. If a user does not have a paid and activated Pluralsight license, they may sign up for a free, personal account and choose to share their Skill IQ and Role IQ with their current or prospective employer.
For other employment-related decisions, Skill IQ can be used as one of many data points and considered in context of other information the employer has available on the employee.
Now that you've learned how to use skills analytics, let's explore more ways to enable your team:
- Take a look at a particular topic within a skill. Determine where your team is "novice" and consider focusing on that to increase overall competencies.
- Think of ways to create internal mentorships within your organization and guide their learning by creating channels.
- Focus on individuals within your team and create a cadence to discuss growth and acquired knowledge.
