Evaluate performance

Competency-based learning

Track learner progress based on how well they master topics

Mastery coverage

Make sure course content is compliant with the competencies you want to train and assess. Create your own competencies and store them in the resources library. Align content and assessments with competencies, then see a coverage analysis of how well your course covers them.

Mastery grid

Track learner progress on a competency-basis and get a detailed view of how learners are understanding the concepts. Easily see mastery levels for all learners with the mastery grid.


Add actions that should be performed when learners drop below a threshold for certain competencies for a specified number of days. You can use this feature to automatically send them recommendations on how to improve in that area, or to alert instructors so they can help the learner.


All the tools you need to evaluate performance

Various types of assessments

Choose from 15 types of assessments such as quizzes, essays, debates, team, Dropbox, discussion, survey, and more. Performance evaluation is easy using our scoring and personalizing tools.

Powerful scoring system

Scoring is simplified using our reliable scoring system. See a centralized view of all scores, quickly add results, and make changes.

Proctored assessments

Use the proctored assessments feature to allow learners' access to assessments based on certain restrictions such as entering a secret access code or their IP address.

Embedding and annotating learner submissions

Learners can see nicely embedded PDF submissions for Dropbox and Essay assessments. Instructors can use the annotations feature to draw, add notes, or add highlights when grading PDF submissions.

Quizzes and question banks

Use tools such as quizzes and question banks to assess learners quickly. Select questions based on competencies and tags. We also support timed quizzes and instant feedback during a quiz, so learners can see their results immediately.

A variety of question types

There are eight question options available for assessing training performance. Instructors can choose between the classic true/false or multiple choice types or go with the more advanced matching or hotspot questions, among others.


Score assessments fast and consistently using rubrics. Build rubrics with custom criteria and associate criteria with competencies.


Easily record learners attendance during a training session and indicate whether a learner is present, late, or absent. Award points for attendance using the attendance assessment feature. Print a PDF attendance form to collect physical signatures.


Learners can copy their best assessments and other resources into a portfolio to showcase their work. Portfolio assets can include multimedia files such as audio and video. Learners enjoy this feature because it makes them feel accomplished and recognized.

Our instructors enjoy the easy management of grades, the ability to copy course content, and the mobile grading.
