These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Allied Health & Medical Assisting Services majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Equipment Selection is very distinctive for majors, but the Active Listening, Speaking, Social Perceptiveness, Reading Comprehension, Service Orientation, Critical Thinking, Writing, Monitoring, Coordination, Active Learning, Instructing, Persuasion, Time Management, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Learning Strategies, Systems Analysis, Management of Personnel Resources, Systems Evaluation, Negotiation, Mathematics, Operation Monitoring, Science, Quality Control Analysis, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Material Resources, Programming, Equipment Selection, Technology Design, Operations Analysis, Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, and Installation are the three most important skills for people in the field.
