Staff members completed a self-assessment of their technology skills before beginning a series of workshops. Midway through the workshops the same assessment was taken again and the scores were lower. How can this be?
Itâ€™s not uncommon for people to be overly optimistic about their technology skill levels the first time they complete a self-assessment. Once they begin training they often realize what they donâ€™t know and scores on a second assessment drop. Hopefully you are providing follow-up support for your staff as they implement what they are learning. Plan to administer the self-assessment one more time. As the staff gains proficiency, the assessment results should show growth.
