The demand for upskilling and reskilling has never been more critical. Within a decade, it’s expected technology will reshape more than one billion jobs worldwide, requiring as many individuals to retrain and reskill by 2030.1 In response, organizations around the world are driving towards solutions that will ensure the effective validating of new skills in a rapidly changing job market.
Why Skill Validation Matters

With standards still evolving, organizations are responsible for valuing and validating this reskill and/or upskill mastery for their workforce. However, many organizations lack concrete proof regarding learners’ ability to retain and apply the knowledge and skills needed to successfully navigate the changing landscape.

3-Point Checklist for Upskilling your Workforce
✔ Set clear, aligned learning objectives
✔ Give real-time, relevant feedback
✔ Ensure consistent, unbiased evaluations
3 Steps to Validate Skill Mastery
The success of your upskill program hinges not only on the quality of training but also on the tangible proof of its impact. Here, we present a 3-point checklist for substantiating genuine skill mastery and enhancing your credentialing program.
1. Establish Clear, Aligned Learning Objectives

Effective assessments begin with defined learning objectives. These objectives form the foundation for your any learning program (and are critical in quickly reskilling or upskilling your employees), facilitating deliberate practice, relevant feedback, and meaningful assessments.

First, create clear, customized objectives rooted in your course materials, including training documents, video transcripts, and assessment rubrics. These objectives:

  • Provide learners with unambiguous guidance, ensuring they understand where to focus during practice.
  • Create a uniform learning experience for all participants.
  • Prevent misalignment between course content and assessment criteria.
  • Maintain consistency by subjecting all learners to the same predefined objectives, ensuring fairness and transparency.First, create clear, customized objectives rooted in your course materials, including training documents, video transcripts, and assessment rubrics. These objectives:
2. Offer Real-Time, Relevant Feedback

The next step involves providing learners with timely, actionable feedback on practice assignments and assessments guided by your learning objectives. This process reinforces comprehension of course content, enabling learners to refine and master their skills through continuous practice. Moreover, it instills instructor confidence in learners’ assessment readiness while reducing the bad habit formation that can occur when learners gain confidence in a wrong approach without timely feedback to redirect.

Providing timely, aligned feedback:

  • Encourages learners to persist until they achieve excellence.
  • Boosts learner confidence by illuminating their strengths and areas for improvement.
  • Sustains learner engagement and motivation.
3. Ensure Consistent, Unbiased Evaluations

Lastly, establish a consistent and fair evaluation process based on your learning objectives to enhance the value and credibility of your upskill/reskill program. By evaluating each learner’s skills and comprehension against the program’s learning objectives, instructors can grade with confidence.

Basing your assessments on learning objectives:

  • Boosts the credibility of your evaluations, ensuring all learners are graded against the same criteria.
  • Helps validate learners’ mastery of the required skills.
Selecting the Ideal Skills Development & Assessment Tools

Traditional assessment methods, such as multiple-choice tests and quizzes, often fall short when meeting today’s credibility, scalability, and value demands. Organizations find it challenging to verify the real-world readiness of their learners, instructors grapple with manual grading, and learners aspire for genuine recognition and feedback that prepares them for real- world challenges. In addition, these assessments often fail to keep up with the evolving needs of reskilling an entire workforce to meet the challenges and demands of the future of work.
