WorkKeys, ACT’s Workplace Assessments
ACT WorkKeys assessments are research-based measures of foundational work skills required for success across industries and occupations. They have been used for more than two decades by job seekers, employees, employers, students, educators, administrators, and workforce and economic developers.
ACT WorkKeys assessments measure the cognitive (“hard”) and noncognitive (“soft”) skills needed for success in the workforce.
Some Adult Technical Training programs have benchmark WorkKeys assessment scores which must be obtained prior to admissions into the program. Remediation through Aspire or KeyTrain is available for those who do not initially meet the necessary scores.
Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents, assessments form the basis of the ACT National Career Readiness Certificate (ACT NCRC), a nationally portable credential that documents the skills most critical to success in the workplace.
We require that all of our students complete these three assessments prior to the start of class. Program entry requirements.
