After the Skills Assessment

Once the system has a good view of where your skill level is, the assessment will complete and you'll see your results immediately.

You can also compare your estimated skill level with the results of your skills assessment. It’s common to  score higher in certain areas than others and it’s okay if your results don’t align perfectly with your self-assessment.

What’s next? Your admin will receive your team’s results. This will help them in assigning learning paths and getting your team started towards the cloud! Hop on over to the FAQ section if you have any other questions.
