Assessment Mode Enhancements

We have made some enhancements to Assessment Mode to allow both managers and developers to better see the results of assessments. Managers are now also provided with feedback when creating assessments to ensure that the selected challenges are available. Details are these enhancements are below:

Manager Assessments Improvements

The following enhancements have been made to improve the experience of creating assessments and viewing their results:

  • Challenge Breakdown - Managers can now simply view the overall results of an assessment completed on a challenge level. This provides a manager a snapshot view of the strengths and weaknesses of the developers on a vulnerability category level. 

  • Challenge Feedback - While creating an assessments, managers will now be notified if the selected criteria for a challenge cannot be met. This may occur when some types of vulnerabilities are not relevant for a particular language or they do not exist within the platform. 

Developer Assessments Improvements

The following enhancements have been made to allow the developer to better understand how they went in their assessment:

  • Overall Assessment Breakdown - Developers are able to view a graphical representation of their assessment. The Developers' results across the different types of questions are clearly visible as well as the their overall progress. They are also able to see their overall score in comparison to the assessment group.

  • Strengths per category - A developer can click on individual categories to get a breakdown of their results in the category. This allows the developer to identify where their strengths and weaknesses are so they know where they need to focus their future training.
