Add or Update Student Skills/Levels in Mass

Updating student skills/levels in mass requires a user permission in Tools > Manage Users & Permissions. This user permission is in the Student section of the permissions and is called Skills Mass Update.  

Students > Skills Mass Update offers four different options to add / update a group of students' skills:

  • add a new skill to students working on a current skill
  • add a new skill to students without a current skill
  • complete a current skill (by entering the date attained on the current skill)
  • promote to a new skill (by entering the date attained on the current skill and adding the new skill).

Note: This will only search for students with Current Skills without a Date Attained. Therefore, it won't find completed skills (skills with a date attained). Use Skills Search in the Student menu to find students with completed skills.

Groups of students can be defined by the following criteria:

  • Location
  • Current Skill/Level
  • Category 1 OR Class (choose one, not both)
  • Category 2 OR Class (choose one, not both)
