What is a Skill Analysis?

QuantHub's Skill Analysis is a tool for diagnosing skill gaps and strengths.

Metrics Explained

SA8Skills passed. To pass a skill, participants must answer 3/5 questions correctly. This is not the same as mastering a skill. To master a skill in a skill check, you must answer 3/3 of the most difficult level of questions.

SA9Lives remaining. The higher the number the better. Each skill has 3 lives, so a skill analysis with 10 skills has 30 lives.  

SA10Neurons are shown in a percentage of earned out of possible. Remember that slider questions allow for partial credit. Also, remember that difficult questions have higher neurons.

SA11 Total time to complete the analysis. The less time the better unless an extremely short time may indicate an invalid score.  

SA12Percentage of passed skills out of the total skills assessed.
