At the top of a check-in page you'll see this:

The percentage completeness is calculated based on the total of all the skill levels required for position and the total of the levels from the check-in.

Example

Jane is a Senior Software Engineer. There are 5 skills required for the position:

  • Communication, level 3

  • Writing code, level 4

  • Leadership, level 2

  • Mentoring, level 3

  • Thinking outside the box, level 3

Total skill levels required: 3+4+2+3+3 = 15

In her most recent check-in she received the following:

  • Communication, meeting (level 3)

  • Writing code, exceeding (level 5)

  • Leadership, meeting (level 2)

  • Mentoring, working towards (level 2)

  • Thinking outside the box, working towards (level 2)

Total skill levels received in check-in 3+5+2+2+2 = 14

Therefore we show that Jane is 6.7% ((1/15) x 100) away from the role of Senior Software Engineer.

Comparing Roles Example

On the check-in page you can compare your result from the check-in with different roles. In some cases this can provide surprising outcomes e.g.

Jane compares her check-in result with the role of Staff Software Engineer.

There are 7 skills required for the Staff Software Engineer.

  • Communication, level 4

  • Writing code, level 5

  • Leadership, level 3

  • Mentoring, level 4

  • Thinking outside the box, level 4

  • Software Architecture, level 3

  • Debugging, level 3

Total skill levels required: 4+5+3+4+4+3+3 = 26

Total skill levels received in check-in 3+5+2+2+2 = 14

Therefore we show that Jane is 46% ((12/26) x 100) away from the role of Staff Software Engineer.

Note that Jane is shown as 46% away because there are 2 skills she has not checked-in against. In reality she probably has a certain level of competence in these skills however this is not reflected in the difference between her current level and Staff Software Engineer level.
