DON'T GRADE YOURSELF HERE - NOT A SELF ASSESSMENT

Please rate each skill on a scale from 1-5, with...
"1" = the most "BASIC" of skill levels, and...
"5" = the most "ADVANCED" of skill levels.
NOTE: This is NOT a question about how well "YOU" know these skills, but rather how advanced these skills are (e.g. if 'addition' is a "BASIC" skill, the 'ability to work with complex systems of differential equations' might be an "ADVANCED" skill.)

PLEASE select "Don't Know" (last column) if you feel you are not familiar enough with an item to rate it.
For example, if you don't know enough about VBA to say whether the skill is 'advanced' in your mind - select 'Don't Know' for related items

REMEMBER ! : This is NOT a self-assessment. All we are doing here is judging how 'basic' or 'advanced' a skill seems to be (NOT how 'you' are at something). Please modify your answers above if necessary at this point.

ALSO - Please check to make sure you used the last column above ONLY for "Don't Know" responses. Provide additional notes on your responses here if needed:
