What is the WorkKeys Program?


WorkKeys is a workforce and economic development program consisting of the following:

  • Work-related skills assessments
  • Job profiles for businesses and industries

The WorkKeys assessments require that a person score certain minimal levels on three WorkKeys assessments designed to measure workplace skills: Reading for Information, Locating Information, and Applied Mathematics. These skills are required of virtually all jobs at various levels. Sample questions can be viewed here. Also, there are more assessments available at http://www.act.org/workkeys/assess. The former Work Ready Program included Reading for Information, Locating Information, and Applied Mathematics.
