#3 Product of the DaySeptember 21, 2017

In as little as five minutes and 20 questions, you can identify your knowledge gaps and strengths with our skill assessments. Your results tell you where to start within a learning path, so you can develop the skills you need most and not waste time on what you already know.

  • Pros: 

    None that I can think of


    Too difficult to login

    I signed up. It gave me 2 emails. 1 saying I have an account. The second saying there was a problem setting up the account. Also using the first email left me to their site without being logged into my new account.

    Personally this doesn't even look appealing.

  • Pros: 

    It has ways to test your knowledge


    It doesn't test skills I'd consider useful or relevant

    The tests I took were looking like questions people hate to get on interviews: How does the prototype exactly work, will this exact code using this particular unused language feature result in an error, etc. During the React test I got asked questions about Webpack configuration keys!

    Maybe I just took the wrong tests, let me know if there are any tests you'd deem fit for judging a candidate :-)

Have you considered student discounts? I could see many long-term users post-graduation for seeking jobs.

@jleodaniel @lindsaybayuk I think he meant for your entire Pluralsight service. I'd be interested in this too, education is lifelong for us knowledge workers! ;)
@gilbertglee @nwalkingshaw How is this different from the measure your skills you had previously?

@gilbertglee @ishu3101 We have expanded the capability. Not only the test taking experience but the analytics behind it has the topic level breakdown of each skill as well. Then Iris builds a personalized learning journey once you have completed the skill IQ to show you a path to becoming expert.
