ACT WorkKeys Information
ACT WorkKeys assessments are designed to measure a candidate's readiness for the workplace. When you pass the WorkKeys exams you earn a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) which signals to potential employers that you have the skills necessary for the workplace.
The WorkKeys exams measure your skills in three separate areas:
- Applied Math - assesses critical thinking, math reasoning and problem solving techniques that are applicable to everyday workplace situations
- WorkPlace Documents - assesses how individuals make job-related decisions and solve problems when they use workplace documents like messages, policies, regulations and contracts
- Graphic Literacy - measures how individuals read and understand graphical images to solve workplace problems. Typical graphics may include charts, diagrams, and floor plans.
