I've often wondered why there is no general scale to visually show a persons proficiency in technology/hardware/software. Is there such a thing?
Something like... I could fill-out a questionnaire asking a series of questions to determine my abilities in a program lets say MS Word, Excel, Windows XP and Ubuntu.
Lets say I scored... (just guessing at percentages assuming knowing all there is to know about the software is 100%)
- MS Word 60% (showing proficiency to create and edit documents with some styling abilities... no advanced templates nor VBA)
- MS Excel 80% (high use of formulas, templates, printing... no VBA)
- Windows XP 50% (basic install, operation no recovery customizing...)
- Ubuntu 0% (never played that game... ;P)
Now that I have a baseline, could I not assume that the learning curve for MS PowerPoint will be small compared to learning Linux. This scale could be used to explain learning curves for any program granted the programs where independently aligned to the scale.
Is there such a thing? Is this possible to make? (or should I stop now)
PS: I could use a scale like this to graphically show my personal experience. In fact this is why I'm asking. I'm updating my resume and need to show my various/wide-ranging experience.
