How to measure your own skills?
Measuring your own skills are not black and white. They are complicated and hard to decide our level of skill. There are several websites to testify your own skills and at last you will get a report on where do you stand in any kind of skill. Anyhow I’m not able to find a satisfiable page to understand my own skills levels. So what I did was, I surfed on internet and landed on Arashini Innovation. Here the author, Lean, is talking about “How to measure the skills of your employee”, where Lean has divided the scale into 5 level. You can read more about it on Arashini Innovation’s website.
I took a detour and created my own scale of “measure your own skills” in percentage, inspired by the above article. In this scale, I focus on how i see my own level of learning and my skills.
- Level 0 (0%) having absolutely no clue what I’m doing.
- Level 1 (25%) covers a basic skill/knowledge, where I think, I know what I want but somehow I need assistance to imply the needs.
- Level 2 (50%) shows a medium level of skills / knowledge, where I know what I want and I have an idea on how to imply it.
- Level 3 (75%) shows an advance level of skills / knowledge, where I know what I want and I know how to imply it.
- Level 4 (100%) is the expert. I have the skills / knowledge that’s equal to an expert in the field.
Example: when I say I have 90% skills in a field, I know what I want and I know how to imply it, I’m yet an expert in the field.
