Nimblr's "Awareness Level" indicates a user's current focus on IT security. Like other attention-demanding processes, this focus can change over time. The Awareness Level isn't a direct measure of knowledge, but there is a correlation between knowledge and awareness. Factors influencing the Awareness Level are:
Active course participation
Completed knowledge refreshers (Boosters)
Inadequate course participation (as indicated by the number of course reminders sent)
Clicking on simulations
Knowledge decline (based on a generic forgetting curve)
The formula to determine the Awareness Level considers all user activities since training began. However, more recent security behaviors carry greater weight than older ones. For instance, a user who clicked on simulations and received numerous course reminders a year ago but has since enhanced their participation and stopped clicking on simulations might have a higher Awareness Level than another user who continues to click on simulations but has done so less frequently overall.
