A Gap Analysis Assessment can be used to identify a User's learning needs. which can be linked to competencies.
By using Likert Scale questions when creating your Question Bank you can use the Diagnostic Assessment tool to create Gap Analysis Assessments.
Simply choose the activities which will make up your competency pathway by adding them to your basket and then add a Diagnostic Assessment to the start of your Pathway.
When the user completes the assessment they'll be asked to rate themselves against the competency questions according to the Likert Scale answers provided in the Question Bank.
For example, a competency question may be:
'How good are you at setting priorities and communicating them to your team?'
- Don't Know
You may decide that only a rating of Good or Excellent exempts a user from this competency, whereas Poor, Satisfactory and Don't Know would represent an area identified for improvement.
This will be indicated in the Question Bank as the correct answers being 3|4 (meaning 3 or 4).
Should the User completing the assessment score themselves as Poor, Satisfactory or Don't Know, they would be directed to the related learning which has been linked to the question in the Question Bank using the Activity Code.
Should they choose Good or Excellent, they will be exempt from the related learning.
You could also choose to create a Stand-alone Diagnostic Assessment which allows Multiple Attempts, which would allow the User to take the Assessment more than once, self-assessing on a regular basis, and putting their development into their own hands.
