WorkKeys Assessments

WorkKeys is a research-based assessment that measures work skills needed for career success across industries. The assessment is administered in the fall and spring and is optional for students in 11th and 12th grades. 

Students who complete Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents have the opportunity to earn the ACT® WorkKeys® National Career Readiness Certificate®  (NCRC). The NCRC is a national program designed to foster economic and workforce development in the state of Wyoming and is a nationally-recognized credential which denotes that the holder possesses the fundamental skills required to achieve success in the workplace and become a productive, valuable employee.

The WorkKeys Occupational Profile Database allows users to search for careers and view the scores needed for those careers.

Students who take the WorkKeys on the WorkKeys state test day may be eligible to receive an NCRC on top of qualifying for a Hathaway Provisional Opportunity Scholarship.

If your campus is interested in administering ACT WorkKeys, call ACT at 800.967.5539.
