Career Readiness Certificate

WorkKeys®, an assessment tool from the ACT® organization, measures skills employers have identified as critical to job success in their industry and are used in hiring and promoting employees. Students are able to earn the ACT®-issued National Career Readiness Certificate by meeting the score requirements for their job field on three WorkKeys® assessments.

Applied Mathematics measures the skills used when applying mathematical reasoning and problem-solving techniques for work-related problems.

Locating Information measures the skills people use when they work with workplace graphics such as charts, graphs, tables, floor plans and instrument gauges.

Reading for Information measures the skills used when people read and use written text on the job.

Matching the right employees with the right job creates employee job satisfaction, increased self-confidence and the best wages possible for the employee. The employer benefits with reduced turnover and training, increased productivity and overall company success.
