See: Creating a Competence Profile
You measure and record a score of how the person has performed against each competence during assessment. This provides clear and accessible performance measures (Is the person demonstrating the specified behavior at the level defined? Does the person have the knowledge or skills required to operate effectively?). You hold applicant and employee accomplishments in a person's Competence Profile. You can then use the assessment results to analyse what is required to get the people with the right competencies in place. You can do this by hiring people, developing or training them.
By measuring competencies grouped into an assessment (for example, a Managerial or Engineering assessment), you focus attention on the behaviors and proficiency or performance of individuals and their ability to get things done. (Do not worry about proficiency or performance here, we describe both in What Type of Assessment do you Want to Perform?).

The Competence Gap module graphically represents (by line or bar chart) the gap between a person's, or group of people's, competencies and what the enterprise requires.
