Pluralsight Unveils Tool for Assessing Technology Skills

Pluralsight Inc., the enterprise technology learning platform, is introducing Role IQ, giving companies a way to determine a technology professional’s expertise level.

Role IQ gives CIOs and CTOs the ability to replace manual benchmarking and outdated staffing strategies with science-driven assessments and real-time analytics that help ensure technology professionals are well-positioned to deliver on business objectives.

Role IQ, powered by Pluralsight’s machine learning algorithms Iris, builds upon the success of Skill IQ, which has benchmarked more than 1 million technology skills worldwide.

While Skill IQ measures an individual’s proficiency in a specific software technology (e.g. Angular) in as little as five minutes and 20 questions, Role IQ measures a collection of skills an individual needs to be successful in her role.

With more than 120 skill assessments available across a variety of technologies, CIOs and CTOs can determine the role proficiency of each person in their organization by designing custom roles or by leveraging the roles created by Pluralsight and its partners.

 The following Roles IQs were announced today:

  • Security Analyst
  • Server Administrator (Microsoft Windows Server)
  • BI / Data Analyst (Tableau)
  • Unity Game Developer
  • Angular Web Developer
  • React Web Developer
  • Vue Web Developer
  • ASP.NET Web Developer
  • Node Web Developer

Pluralsight also announced three Role IQs created with help from Microsoft specifically tailored for Microsoft Azure including: 

  • Microsoft Azure Administrator
  • Microsoft Azure Solution Architect
  • Microsoft Azure Developer

With plans to make Role IQs available for additional technology positions, Pluralsight will continue to create roles independently and in partnership with Microsoft, Google and other industry leaders.
