Taking a Skill IQ

Tags: Skills

You can get a Skill IQ without a Skills subscription—all you need is a free account. If you're a plan admin on a group plan, you can take skill assessments without a license. For group plans, it's not possible to assign skill assessments to users on your group plan. However, you can share the link to the path page associated with the Skill IQ.

Who can use this?



Note: Skill IQ is only available on a web browser. You can't take a Skill IQ from Pluralsight's mobile or offline apps at this time.

Finding and taking a Skill IQ

You can discover all Skill IQs on the Skill assessments page (opens in new tab). Alternatively, you can locate Skill IQs from the Paths page (opens in new tab) by choosing a path labeled Get your Skill IQ. Pluralsight Skills paths are designed to prepare you for the Skill IQ in that subject.

To take a Skill IQ from within a path, click Measure now.

Note: Some paths may be associated with a certification exam, rather than a Skill IQ. That's because skill paths are focused on learning a specific skill, and certification paths are focused on helping you prepare for a certification exam.
