A skill is an assessment of some aspect of a user's responses (a number from 0 to 100)

Skill is a general grouping entity, for example "image annotation", which is created once and then used. To set the Skill value for a specific performer, use UserSkill. You can set up skill calculation in a quality control rule, or manually set the skill level for a user. You can use skills to select users who perform pool tasks.
