There are three ways a skill can be assigned to a user.
- Manual assignment: An administrator can access a users profile and navigate to the Skills tab (1), over there he/she will be able to view a tabular list of all skills (including those assigned to the user). The administrator can then assign a specific skill to that user (2) and add a specification if needed (3).
The same can be done by visiting the Skills section, entering a specific skill and moving to the Users tab.
- Course completions: Once a user successfully completes a course that offers a skill he/she then automatically gets this skill.
- Skill gap test: When a user takes a skill gap test and successfully passes this test he/she automatically gets assigned all those skills that are examined by that test.
