Configuring the rating scale

Scale customization

To define the expected level for each skill in your frameworks and thus correctly assess employees during reviews, you can customize the rating scale.

To do this, go to Settings > "Skills" > "Settings" > "Rating scale" tab.

The rating scale customization options are as follows: 

- Disable a level* (applicable to all languages);

- Customize the level label (if the default one isn't right for you);

- Add a custom description to each level (visible in reviews).

*You cannot disable a level if it is specified as an expected level in a skills grid. First you need to edit the expected level in your framework before you can disable it in settings.

If some skills require custom descriptions, you can tailor the descriptions for each skill. To do this, go to Settings > "Skills" > select the skill from the list > "General Information" tab > "Rating scale" section.

Here you can edit the description of each level for the selected skill. Descriptions are clearly visible in reviews to help users do a self-assessment.

Managing a multi-language scale

If you operate in several countries and need to manage your skills repository in several languages, that's no problem.

  • Step 1: Select a default language

To do this, go to Settings > "Skills" > "Settings" > "Default language" tab.

The default language is the language that will be displayed in employee reviews if you do not provide custom translations for the other languages.

  • Step 2: Translate the scale into the other languages

To do this, go to Settings > "Skills" > "Settings" > "Rating scale" tab > in the drop-down language list, select another language.

For languages other than the default language, you can also: 

- Customize the level label (if the default one isn't right for you);

- Add a custom description to each level (visible in reviews).

The translations entered here will be visible to users who have set their Lucca account in this language (To edit your user language, click on your photo in the navigation bar > click on "My account" > "Public data" tab > "Language").
