Monitoring Learner’s Progress

In Skill Lake, every learner has one or more Mentor(s)(users with Mentoring privileges) to guide them in the learning journey. Mentor assigns relevant courses or learning activities and monitors the learner’s progress on the assigned courses, tests, and assignments.

Monitoring Learners Progress

A mentor can view the list of all assigned learners under the “Learners” tab. On clicking on a learner, he can view the to-dos the learner needs to complete, feedback journals received, and knowledge areas he is trying to accomplish.

Feedback Journal

Mentors (users with Mentoring privileges) can create learning journals to share feedback/ suggestions to help them achieve their learning goals. This is also helpful during the review meetings and for future reference. The learning journal will be visible to the mentors and reporting managers of the learner. The confidential journal feedback will be visible to the user who shares it, the user who receives it, and the reporting managers of the recipient.


  • If your mentor is creating the confidential journal, then the journal will be visible to you, the mentor who created the journal, and your reporting managers. Other mentors will not be able to view the confidential journal.
  • If any of your managers in the reporting line has created a confidential journal, then the journal will be visible to you and your managers in the reporting line. In this case, your mentors will not be able to view the created confidential journal but will be able to see all public journals given to you.
