Whenever a member completes a quiz, exam, or hands-on lab, the system estimates the member's level of knowledge of the skills that the quiz, exam, or hands-on lab evaluates. It updates a skill score based on several pieces of data, such as the question's difficulty and the correctness of the user's answer.
At the end of the quiz, exam, or hands-on lab, users see updated skill scores on their own Skill Profile. If the user is a member of an enterprise account, the system also updates the leader board so the user can compare skill scores to other members at the company. Administrators, stakeholders, and team managers can see their teams' scores on the Skill Profile dashboard.
Note: If the member starts an exam but then discards it before submitting the answers, the exam does not affect the skill score. Similarly, if the member ends a hands-on lab before finishing, it does not affect the skill score.
