Capability Rating Scales - Manage

Rating Scales are used to set the values that employees can select when completing a rating of themselves or others. They represent an exact point value that can be converted into a percentage based on the scale range.

Rating scales are commonly used to measure proficiency, but they may also be used to measure something other than skill proficiency. For example, you might want to ask employees how much they want to develop a skill. Your scale might look like this:

  • Very Interested
  • Somewhat Interested
  • Not Interested

A skill-specific rating scale could even use statements to describe different scores using domain-specific phrasing like this (Skill-specific scales will be available in a future release):

  • Plays piano like a virtuoso
  • Can play a nice tune with sheet music available
  • Knows the basic keys and scales
  • Has never played piano

Administrators may view and edit the rating scales that are used to measure a user's enjoyment, interest, and proficiency in a capability.

To manage capabilities rating scales, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Capabilities > Rating Scales.
