Excel online training (provided by Filtered)

Filtered provides an online Microsoft Excel course that maximises the impact on its users and their businesses while minimising the time they spend training.

The Company Dashboard

The company dashboard monitors all employees’ progress throughout the course by showing you their Excel IQ levels, time spent and modules completed. You can choose to have employees use the filter or customise the course based on your training objectives. Employee progress can be downloaded into a .csv file for company analysis.

The Excel IQ

Our Excel IQ score is calculated in the same way as an Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and every Filtered user gets two Excel IQ Tests as part of their training. The average score of test-takers is 100, and the spread of scores is adjusted so that 95% of candidates score between 70 and 130. One important advantage of this type of adjusted score – called a T-score – is that it can be compared meaningfully between different tests, because variations in the difficulty of questions are factored out. Crucially this means our tests reliably measure improvement in Excel, even though users answer a different set of questions before and after any training.

The Filter

The Filter is an algorithm that removes training material you don't need, leaving a much-distilled and highly relevant course. Choosing from 161 modules, the filter makes its selection by removing modules because they aren't necessary for a person’s work or because that person is already proficient in them. So the end result is that your employees will spend less time training while attaining the necessary knowledge for your business.
